My name is Kerry O'Connell and I live in Big Timber, Montana. I feel very fortunate to have found the Wealthy Affiliate site. I LOVE the job that I do for my county government and find it very fulfilling, but like most of us, can use some extra income.
I live on a cattle ranch and enjoy the open spaces and the fresh air. With an office job, it becomes difficult to spend as much time outdoors as I'd like, but I take the chance when I possibly can. With two mountain ranges nearby, it's easy to find places to hike, fish, and hunt. If you aren't into any of these things, I'm not sure why you'd want to live here. I've traveled quite a bit of the state for my job, in which I sometimes assist with management of large fires and with smaller ones in my own jurisdiction. A wonderful, challenging adventure, but not one that is easy on the stress level. I'm also an EMT and a public information officer (which is challenging in its own way). I write a lot of grants in my job and have freelanced as a technical writer.
I'm glad to be here and feel welcomed by so many of you.
