Kesha Dreher
Dr. Kesha Dreher self-identifies as the Coolest Nerd Super She-ro on Planet Earth.  She believes if you can dream it and speak it, you can achieve it.  As a south side Chicago native and Iraq war veteran, she experienced her fair share of devastation.  However, Dr. Dreher chose to convert her devastation into her superpower; she encourages others to do as well.  Prior to retiring in Florida, over 25 years were toiled in editing legal and classified materials as a Senior Editor for Shepard’s McGraw-Hill, LexisNexis, and L3/Harris Technologies.  Dr. Dreher also loved sharing her pedagogical gifts and talents with students enrolled in local under-served Colorado community colleges as an English Professor.  To nourish her super she-ro inner-nerdy side, she earned a BS and MBA in IT, a Ph.D. in MGMT/HETL, and established Tri-Lakes Computer Services (TCS).  TCS offered her the benefit of enjoying her passions of “hands-on” computer engineering and tutoring underprivileged youth and young adults with “self-invented” game-based learning materials before it became a thing.  Besides her debut poem chapbook, Sifting Through The Dross, Dr. Dreher has also authored New Beginnings: A 25-Day Devotional, War Room Wednesdays: A 52-Week Devotional, and Exploring Strategies Leadership Need To Integrate Game-based Learning Into Higher Education: Ph.D. Dissertation (ProQuest).  Happily married 28 years to her husband, William; they lovingly share one daughter and a pup.  Her spare time is spent reading, writing, family time, watching sports, boating, and traveling around the U.S., Hawaiian Islands, and abroad (Germany, Iraq, Berlin, Mexico, and more).

    Hi Kesha,
    I hope all turned out okay for our membership base after Hurricane Ian. Are we still having Saturday’s monthly meeting? If so, are you providing Zoom access?
    Please advise when you have a moment. Sincerely,

      Hello James,

      Unfortunately, due to Hurricane Ian, we have been forced to cancel this month’s meeting. More information is supplied in October’s President Letter listed on the front page of the website.
