Kevin Christensen had a career as a computer programmer, designing and writing systems for medical clinic practice management. Over the years, the language that he wrote in (Pick) was becoming more of a legacy language and the ability to find employment had greatly diminished. Having a desire to find another more flexible and interesting career, he turned to medical transcription. The State of Utah Job Training Program recommended Meditec, where he has happily matriculated ever since.
“My mother was always into decorating. Before Halloween she would rack her brain weeks ahead to come up with some new “scary” that she hadn’t used before. One year her new idea was to hang a “bloodied woman” from the top of our home.
When I got home from trick or treating on Halloween night, she told me that we surprisingly had few visitors. The next day at school, my classmates told me that they skipped our house because the body hanging from it looked too real. They were too scared to approach our home. I only later learned that my mother had used some of MY old clothes that my classmates recognized. They were afraid my mother had lost her marbles and it was ME hanging from the house!”
