01. FIRST NAME
Ginger. I have legally changed my last name three times (marriage, divorce, marriage), my first name once, and tweaked my middle name around a bit too. We do not discuss my original first name, so don't ask. Thanks. :)

02. AGE
I turned 31 in December 2011.

03. LOCATION
I live in Muncie, Indiana, in a lovely large apartment with my best-beloved tiny roommate, my dog, and the Sir.

04. OCCUPATION
I am a Certified Professional Coder through the American Academy of Professional Coders, which means I have letters after my name. However, I just (5/25/12) left my job of eight years as a clinical data analyst and forms coordinator at a major hospital in Seattle, which involved designing and maintaining billing documents, doing medical coding, handling a lot of billing issues, and generally whatever needed doing.

In addition, I am also a part-time cashier at a Target store in my area. Go go employee discount. I am hoping to be able to quit this job in mid to late February. My last day at Target was 2/4.

05. PARTNER?
I have no formal attachments.

06. KIDS?
I am childfree -- of the sane variety, not the intarwebs crazy sort -- and have been all my life. But I have several parent friends on my LJ who would, I hope, vouch for my lack of crazy in this regard.

07. BROTHERS/SISTERS
My brother is 2 years younger than me, married to a sweet lady with two kids (aged 11 and 16) from a previous relationship who adore him, and lives in the mid-Michigan area. Doc, their first child together, was born on 1/5/2012, which was also his big sister's 11th birthday. My sister is four years younger than me. I don't see them often, but we get along much better now that we're adults. Well, my brother and I do. My sister and I get along a little better, but not much.

08. PETS




Angua, my 65 pounds of lap puppy :)

09. LIST THE 3-5 BIGGEST THINGS GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE
If I read this as "things that take up most of my time and energy...
a. I am in school full-time, working on my BS in Public Health Studies through an online program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Currently off for the summer, fall semester starts up in August.
b. I also love to read - especially historical non-fiction and auto/biographies, alternative history, and epic fantasy/SF series.
c. I just left Seattle at the end of May to move back to the Midwest and take the rest of the year off, before hopefully spending some time in the first half of 2013 traveling overseas.
d. Traveling and spending time with friends.

10. PARENTS
My parents were married in 1975. My mother is also a medical coder/biller (she was thrilled when she found out I was sticking with medical coding and finance) for a small family practice in Grand Ledge, and my father has been half-owner of a small office furniture and supply store in Lansing since 1988. They live just south of Lansing with two cats.

11. WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS?
My Committee currently consists of Joyce, Ari, Wally and La Dillo.

12. MISC:
I drive a 2009 Smart Passion named Mira. I also have two computers -- a Macbook Air named Sinclair and a Mac Mini named Sheridan. I use both Windows 7 and Mac operating systems and do not participate in or sanction OS wars. I hate talking on the phone.

Beyond that, I'm pretty willing to answer questions :)
