I graduated with a B.Ed. degree in English Language and Secretarial Studies at Kenyatta University, Kenya in 1989. Since then I have taught English Language and Secretarial Studies in secondary schools in Kenya. I have also worked for four years in the editorial department of Kenya Literature Bureau, a state corporation engaged in educational publishing. Prior to that I served in the Kenya Army for six years as an Education Instructor,rising to the rank of a Warrant Officer. Over time I have also offered secretarial services publicly in my home town of Chogoria during my free time.
