I studied biology and computer programming at UCSD, and left there in 1972. I got a job at JPL as programmer in 1975, and am still here in '03. I'm not yet bored so I've stayed here. I met my husband of 23 years here. All my telemetry knowledge has come from working here. Now I no longer program, but write requirements for programmers, and help missions with their telemetry processing in many ways.
