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).
