How much time do you spend online a week?
3-4 hours every day.
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
Trinity smiles introduced me to Eliters I think in May or June 2001, I joined as sabine2018 as a guest and became fairly soon a premium and started TD'ing in October (15th!).
When did you first become a Staff Member at Eliters.
I became a TD 10/15/2001.
Tell us about your career history at Eliters
OY! TD in October then somewhere in fall 2002 I became AGL then in April this year (2004) GL and I became AA in June? I frankly don't remember! I have a very busy practice and had to resign from the AA position.
If time werenít a factor, what would you like to do more of in your life?
Be at home, lol housewife chores. I hardly enjoy my home. Last week I was home exactly 20 hours. I love cooking!
What is it in your background that prepared you for all this?
I am a staff member of a university clinic and am involved daily in training residents and being a doc.
What was it that attracted you to becoming a doctor and specifically the specialization you have?
I had a lot of ear infections as a small child and at age 3 I knew: Iíll find something to do against earache! And I found something. so I always wanted to be a doc and an ear nose throat doc specifically!
What skills have you developed that made this possible?
I have skills?? I think I have some deductive skills and a healthy sense of humor
And what do you do, for Elite, that makes use of all these skills?
I am team leader in backgammon with a bunch of wonderful people. My goal is to keep them motivated and happy to be members of the TD staff.
What leagues have you administered or been a TD in Elite?
My "baby" is backgammon. I fostered for a short while the Go Fish league.
Do you administer any real-life competitions?
Not yet. I want to organize an "Euro-Eliters" mini-championship next year in the summer.
What do you do in your time away from Elite?
My profession as a doc takes a large amount of time, and then I have my family and friends.
What makes Eliters different from the competition?
The organization, the professionalism with which it is run and the great companionship between players and among the TD group.
What would you tell a prospective member who is trying to choose between Eliters and other, similar leagues?
The simplicity of the site, the tournaments we offer, the EDS system and the 3 different gaming sites: yahoo, pogo and colony AND OF COURSE MY PERSONAL CHARM that you can only find in Eliters!
Well, that certainly sums it up, any last words for our readers?
Eliters is very special... people come and go and its a great place to meet people from all over the world... you never know but you might even find friends for life!
Ok, my next plans are a movie with Richard Gere.
