photography on assignment, and I'd love to hear from you when you have need. My
specialty is on-site candid shots at special events, including weddings, however
I also do scenic shots and general assignment photographic work.

. . . on me underlines that my résumé is full
of variety, the spice of life and I seem to have become a jack of all trades, or
should it be “Jill.” This has kept my life interesting. I have been a wife and
mother. I have a son, Christopher Tod Fultz, born in 1964, and a grandson,
Dakota Skye “Cody” Fultz, born in 1992. They are “my guys,” and I take pride and
joy in both of them.
Shortly after high school, I married, and my husband, Lee, and I
lived in Louisville awhile, then we moved to a farm in Floyds Knobs in Southern
Indiana. We owned, bred and showed Morgan Horses. We built a barn that was a lot
bigger — and, blush, nicer — than the house.
In 1984, I went on a solo trip to Germany. I
visited with my Southern High School (Louisville) classmate Til (Mattingly)
Kroll. I also visited my son, who was stationed at the U.S. Army’s Daley
Barracks in Bad Kissingen, Germany. While in Europe, I also made trips to France
and the Vatican City in Italy.
In 1988, I became a Mary Kay consultant, and
I continue to be a cosmetics consultant.
Through the years, I worked as a
receptionist, both at a law firm and at a plastic surgeon’s office. I was an
assistant to a veterinarian, and I worked in accounts payable at a bank. In
addition, I worked as a customer service representative at UPS. Looking back, I
treasure the diversity of workplace experience afforded by holding a range of
A shutterbug since high school, I have long
enjoyed photography, chiefly as a hobby, though I occasionally do free lance
photography — weddings mostly. Personal computing developed into a passion of
mine once my close friend Carolyn essentially tricked me into trying what had
been, until then, a scary proposition: using a home computer. Surprisingly,
after only a few minutes I was hooked and ready to purchase my own machine.
These days, I am so often multitasking, I use two large monitors in concert.
In 1998, I moved to Tampa, Florida, and,
through a temp agency, did receptionist work for several firms: an interior
design office, a yacht builder and also Busch Gardens. Additionally, I worked as
a transcriptionist for claims at an auto insurance company and was a customer
service representative for both an auto insurance group as well as a health
insurance company. I guess, somewhere along the line, I became a career temp
worker. While some people become specialists (often described as someone who
knows more and more about less and less), I suppose I have become a
generalist, which, in contrast, must then mean I know less and less about more
and more! I think this approach to life came about when I entered motherhood,
where you must be all things to your little one.
In 2001, I moved again, this time to
Indianapolis. There I worked as a studio photographer. Later, I landed a fun job
for Enterprise Rent-A-Car as a receptionist. I retired in 2004.
On retirement, I thought it was time to
settle down and move back home to our beautiful Bluegrass State, so, in October
2004, a little new house in Bardstown became My Old Kentucky Home.
spent a great
amount of time helping plan the 50th year reunion of the Southern
High School Class of 1960. It was August 21, 2010, and was, by all accounts, a
great success. I developed and
presently maintain a web site as part of the reunion effort. Since it proved to
be so rewarding, I volunteered to do a similar web site for the SHS Class of
1961. The address for those two sites are:
I am always excited to hear from old friends
and I enjoy making new ones. I like to keep in touch. That’s why I have added
this little whistle stop on the “Information Superhighway.” This web site, and
others I dabble with, helps me combine my photographic and computer skills, as
well as reach out to my friends.
