Laurie, thank you for adding a link to your resume in the Resume Bank. I wanted to let you know that I had trouble viewing your web pages using Internet Explorer 6.0. It appeared just fine in Firefox 2007. There is also a jobs page if you have not seen it yet. If I see a job advertised in visual archives or hear about one via word of mouth, I will let you know or post a link to the job description on your discussion page. Best of luck securing a position!
