Scouting travel and training adventures

Hi, I'm Patricia Spain. After working as an editor at Bon Appetit and Architectural Digest magazines in NYC I joined SAS in 1993. To help add some adventure to your training excursions (after all, you're already going, right?) I bring you my love of all things travel with recommendations for attractions and entertainment; perhaps displaying a lop-sided emphasis on where to find architectural wonders and a tasty meal. We may venture off the beaten path where oftentimes the best treasures are to be found. When not traveling, for real or from my armchair, I'm proud to market the award-wining SAS e-Learning curriculum, work with the Stat Guys on the Stat Wars series and collaborate with all the fantastically talented SAS Advanced Analytics instructors marketing the Analytics curriculum. Here in the heart of North Carolina State University country I would like to proudly proclaim “Go Tarheels!”
