Hi Alexis,

Thanks much for introducing yourself!

BTW, while I have a degree in applied mathematics specializing in computer 
science, I also had to take two years of German as a requirement at the time 
for an Arts and Sciences degree (this was 30 years ago, so I *really* know what 
you mean about losing your language skills; now I find myself practicing the 
German equivalent of "Here comes the FSU bus"!).

If you're from a German background, you may be interested in a small local 
restaurant we have named Riccardo's; because the owner is also from a German 
background,  a couple of nights a week he adds some German dishes to the menu.  
Perhaps he'd even be around and allow you to try out your German (it's been a 
long time since I've eaten there, so I don't know what it's like these days).

Thanks again for saying hello, and welcome to Tallahassee.

Subject: [tabi] Introduction


My name is Alexis Read, and I have recently moved to Tallahassee.  I work at 
the Lighthouse of the Big Bend as a Vocational/Assistive Technology Specialist. 
 Previously, I lived in Tempe, AZ and worked at Arizona State University.  My 
title was Disability Access Consultant so my primary role was assisting 
students in receiving course related accommodations.  I have a masters degree 
in vision rehabilitation therapy that I earned from Western Michigan University 
in 2012.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, interacting with others on social media, and 
baking.  My favorite genre is mystery and detective novels with a special focus 
on forensic science.  I also have a minor in German although have not found 
anyone who speaks the language.  As a result, I feel as though my German skills 
are rusty.

I look forward to interacting with others on the list.
