About Battered Employee

Corn growing, Minnesota, USA

Wikipedia can show you a picture of a corn field, but it probably never had the awesome summer job I had. 

My first job, at age 14, was de-tasseling corn. If you’re not from Illinois, you probably have no idea what I’m talking about. And if you are from Illinois, chances are you were smart enough to choose babysitting instead. But that summer, my friend and I boarded a bus together before dark each morning, for the privilege of trudging through muddy cornfields and the promise of our very own spending money. As they say, it built character.

A couple decades have passed, and I’ve had way too many jobs, some of which left me feeling truly battered. Presently, though, I work at a very nice office where nobody yells at me. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism, and I just finished my Master of Science in Performance Improvement.

My husband and I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with two very spoiled cats. You can reach me at batteredemployee@gmail.com.
