I've been working on merging my Privacy Laws and Federal experiences together into one career; one I like to call FOIA for the U. S. Census Bureau for the past few months.
I have been staying abreast of United States Census Bureau's training and financial situation as they attempt to bring their smaller projects up to par and back into Illinois by checking in with them weekly. I'm the only one left from my former Crew Leader's 2010 Riverton Decennial Census Team, so I bust a hump to stay with them and help make them look good. That job was an opportunity I waited most of my adult life for. What I am ultimately trying to do is get on board with their Freedom of Information Act General Counsel.
I've been traveling throughout Illinois scouting in the field for various agencies and an international company.
The Shared Secret Series
As Leigh-Anne Ames, I am currently writing the third and final book in this series, entitled Holy Wow!; it keeps stalling out somehow, so I continuously work on this. I am also typing out my hard copy to Book 2, Angels Among Us, which is probably the longest book in the series.
I've spent the better part of this past year writing, completing, and promoting my three- book series called THE SHARED SECRET. Though I've hit alot of rough spots over this past year, I found a way to keep myself motivated and writing, so SHARED SECRET is on the book store shelves, Book 2 is ANGELS AMONG US and due out on December 16, 2012. Will keep you posted.
I've been reviewing any recent updates to existing privacy laws and searching all engines for companies looking to hire in those of us with respect to confidentiality and privacy laws.
