A Big Change For Geek Gal is Coming!
Hello friends old and new! I’m updating to let you all know that I will pulling back from performing as Geek Girl for a temporary leave of absence starting in 2020. The reason: Grad School! I will be starting my degree through the university of Southern Mississippi in January of 2020. If the plan goes as…well…planned, I will have my Masters Degree in Library and Information Science by May of 2023. Maybe sooner.
What this means however is I will have far less time for lecturing while I am in school.
However, I will not be stopping all together. I will make a few appearances yearly. But for now, I will not be taking any new clients, or lecture offers for the time I am in school.
This DOES mean I will be back at the lecture circuit as soon as my degree is finished. I realized it’s a long wait, but if you’d like to have me in the future please send me a message with the form below, and I will contact you as soon as I am done with school and ready to hit the lecture circuit again!
Thank you for your interest, and your patience while I embark on this new adventure. Geek Gal is not gone! She’s only taking a side trip for a little while!
