The Education of Audrey N. Glickman
Audrey Glickman is a graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School, like her mother, her son, and Wiz Khalifa.
Audrey holds a B.A. in Theatrical Production from the University of Pittsburgh. While there, she served as Vice President of the Studio Theatre Organization, in addition to a year as Vice President of Gay Supporters at Pitt.
Audrey credits her teachers with many beneficial and enlightening things:
During the 1980s, Audrey kept increasing her knowledge, with a graduate-level course in television production, and pre-engineering courses. (She earned straight A's in Calculus I through IV.)
While at Ketchum, MacLeod & Grove advertising, preparing documentation for twelve persons, and answering 18 phone lines, Audrey was lucky to be able to participate in the training program for Media Planning. Working with her superiors, studying, and passing the presentation tests, it was quite an education. (As Audrey was about to graduate, the company stopped promoting from within, in favor of hiring college interns.) She also is grateful for the education shared by the video production folks, for whom she served as spare camera operator while teaching them a small bit of lighting design in return for some video knowledge.
Audrey learned negotiating skills by listening to the best of them at Buchanan Ingersoll Professional Corporation. She also gained a good working knowledge of contracts and financial documents, which has come in handy quite often.
After 2000, seeking a change in career, Audrey attended evening classes at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, earning a Diploma in Digital Design - a course which upgraded old artists to the digital age. The art in the tangential website is the product of that schooling.
It likely will take years to sort through the applied political skills Audrey has witnessed over the last decade or so. Some purveyors of the governmental arts are well-endowed with great abilities; others use them to poor advantage. All are a vivid education.
Audrey has no intention of lagging in learning, and continues to consume all the information and experience she can get her hands on.
