- Dr. Kelley put me in contact with the Seattle Mariners for the possibility of an internship. She helped me construct my resume and prepped me for the interview. I got the internship.
- Dr. Kelley was my consulting professor when did a University of Washington Bothell consulting project for Masterpiece AG-Limited. A project that lasted six months, I got life long lessons how to lead a team, accomplish task on-time while providing a high quality product for our client.
- Dr. Kelley was my consulting professor for a benchmarking project which my team and I provided recommendations and a strategic plan for the Yakama Nation Museum in Toppenish, WA. She taught me to get meeting with people and through the project I was privileged enough to interview the Vice President of Institutional Advancement at the Museum of Flight.
- Dr. Kelley personally asked me to be a consultant to her Business Strategy course that was working on an international collaboration project with the first private Bosnian University, Slobomir P Univerzitet. I went to Bosnia not knowing anyone and unable to speak the language to work with the professors, students and local companies in the first student consulting project in the county. I taught business strategy, leadership and team building.
- Dr. Kelley sent me a link for a potential job shortly after graduation. I followed up with the people and they put me in contact with another company which lead to my position with Starbucks Coffee Company as a royalty accountant.
Now if a professor impacts a students life and students lives in this manner wouldn’t it be in the best interest of the University to retain such a high quality professor? I think so, I totally believe it so. Professor Kelley is a great woman and is only rivaled by my mom and grandma. Now I ask you, would you want to mentored by a person that cares so much in your life? How can a value be placed on someone who has had this type of impact? In my humble opinion, you can’t.
PK you are the best thing that could have ever happened to me. With your straight forward, no bones style teaching, you showed me what exactly it is going to take for this Marysville kid to become successful and what you taught me is priceless. Through your guidance and leadership, I have achieved things that are still beyond my comprehension. So I solute you and the quality of caring you put into all your students academic, professional and personal achievements. You’re the Best in my Book and I am confident there are many others that feel as I do. Today the University of Washington Bothell has lost one of their greatest evangelizer.
I love ya PK!!
Does anyone have a back bone to stand up the the Islamic community? Evidently not. Even the Pope is retracking and apologizing for his statements he made regard the "evil and inhuman" ideology behind the Islamic faith. The Islamic community is threatening a Holy War against the Christians for Pope Benedicts statement.
Benedict was quoting 14th Century text when addresses a scientic group. The statement was supposed to spur an intellectual debate but instead he has been receiving the "evil and inhuman" threats from the Islamic community. I have said it before and I will say it again Islam: Don’t react violently to comments and your culture won’t be perceived in that light.
Who cares if someone says something about your prophet. Does it affect your day to day life? No it does not. If you don’t agree with it then you don’t agree with it. Starting a war over some words is the dumbest thing you can do. Instead of focusing on positive steps for the Islamic culture and its societies time is spent on protesting, fire bombing and kidnapping because some said somthing.
Give me a break and people grow a back bone and own up to your words. The Islamic community will back lash no matter what because they are behind the times and would rather get their panties in a bunch over some 14th Century text. Let it go Muslims and grow up.
Islam is a violent and out dated culture and you can quote me!
Pope Benedicts made a connection between Islam and violence in a speech that has the Muslim community all in an uproar. As a result of the pope’s words violence sprung up and churches were fire bombed. Hmmm let’s see. The Muslim culture is violent6 that is a given. Every time someone or group says something about the prophet Mohammed the Muslim community reacts with violence.
This is every time mind you. When cartoons were published about the Mohammad the Muslim community reacted with violence. Even the Ayatollahs have said this will stir violence between Muslims and Christians. They Muslim culture reacts give themselves a really bad name in the world.
Tech Tip Muslims: Don’t react with violence to everything and you wont be label as a violent culture that promotes violence.
Seems easy enough to me. In this day and age it seems that people/leaders/countries can’t say anything to upset the Muslims. I don’t care if they get upset. Their culture is on a self destructive path and they will be their own demise because of their reactions to others. Violence has no place in the new millennium and Muslims would rather fire bomb buildings and blow up stuff because they don’t like what someone has to say or cartoons are published about their prophet.
Tech Tip Muslims: Stop bombing s*** and you may see more respect in the global arena.
Here is a flash video that spells it out if you need a visual interpretation of that tech tip, YAAFM. You don’t like westerners our views well the feeling is mutual. We don’t like your views and religious hatred. Our cities are nice…you blows yours up….think about it. Who has the better philosophy? The Western Civilizations do. Don’t like what I am saying? To bad…I live in a country that values freedom of speech and my thoughts are: Islam is hatred based culture that is still trying to live in 1000 BC.

Now this is plain funny, Chiropractor claims to travel through time – More Health News – MSNBC.com, but it does raises an interesting question. Should some alternative medicine be allowed to practice? Why is that doctors call what they do practice? I don’t want a doctor "practicing" on me. Just a thought.
I seen an interesting show on TV last night about a rare disorder. The disorder caused people to want to sever a limb or limbs to become acceptable in their own eyes. I found it facinating and doctors where accused of practices bad medicine if they soute to "relieve" their patients of this disorder. By relieve I mean amputate the part of the body which the patient wanted removed.
Hell, if you want to cut off your legs than be my guest it doesn’t bother me. Just like if you want to kill yourself go right ahead. Its your body and I think a person has a right to make decesions regarding their own person.
Just because someone disagrees with those actions don’t make them wrong. I can do whatever I want to my body. I mean, I can masturbate all I want why can’t I chop a leg off I want too. Hmmmm…interesting topics and they make ya think a bit.
This is very disturbing and warrants further investigation of the leak of Valery Plame’s identity. This adminstration has been plagued by conspiracy and questions regarding the war in Iraq, terrorist information and even further discredits the "supposed" purpose of the Patriot Act.
At this time I really don’t know what to think. The more I read the more I find I don’t like how this adminstration is guiding our country.
At least elections are around the corner and I once again will cast my vote for the best possible candidate. I must admit though I may have casted the wrong vote last election. It is my hope that our country can move forward and be the progressive and favorable nation.
Our leadership needs to be strong but it also has to look after the American people and not be self seeking and politically driven for its own parties success.
