Degree: Well, I’ve been working on an AA in Digital Communications (photoshop, cs4, web design), but I have a BA in History & Oriental Studies (I think they now call it East Asian Studies), a JD, a MA in Biblical Studies, and a Master’s in Public Health.

Do with it: I can work as a lawyer.  I can teach humanities or social sciences.  I can work for a health department.  I can work for a church.  Or I can do anything totally unrelated.

Currently do with it: I do all sorts of things that somewhat combine my degrees.  What pays most of my bills is working as an appellate attorney, representing the municipality that employs me, mostly by defending police officers and other employees.  As part of that job, I also help monitor the municipal jail conditions, work on health policy and emergency preparedness.  I also work part time as a women’s triathlon coach, helping women develop healthy lifestyles.  Of course, most of the time, I don’t tell people I’m a lawyer . . . I like to say I’m a city employee or that I’m a writer (because quite frankly, that’s what I do).

Dream job:  When I started my current job, it was my dream:  to work as an appellate attorney in constitutional law.  These days, I’d just like to be retired, but I’ve become too dependent on my income.

What is your degree in?  Bachelor of Science in Education- Art

What can you do with it?  Be a K-12 Art Teacher!

What are you doing now?  Working as a machinist in a factory. :/

Dream job?  I still want to be an art teacher more than anything.  I would especially like to teach at the elementary level.  I’m great with little kids.  I’m looking into maybe going to grad school to beef up my resume, but I have decided on a Masters program yet.
