InfoCrofters is our business name, concocted at 2:00 a.m. when entrepreneurial visions kept Ann Stringfield's determined imagination active into the wee hours.
Armed with a Bachelors degree in Biology from UNC-Greensboro, two years as Biology Lab Assistant at UNC-Charlotte, followed by a Masters degree in Library Science from UNC-Chapel Hill, I enjoyed 18 years of information provision to scientists, engineers, and management in a Research Center Library in Greensboro, NC. My positions advanced from Chemical Information Specialist, to External Information
Specialist, Internal Information Specialist, and Senior Information Specialist.
By my 18th year of information provision, my specialties were collecting,
organizing, and developing most any sort of searchable database imaginable,
meeting the information needs of the corporation. Professional and personal
networking opportunities were tremendous, and the unending opportunities
for organizing information at every turn became increasingly enticing!
And so, there came a time when entrepreneurism, an out-of-the-corporate-box
experience, became a goal. I asked self-challenging questions, such as
Why do we leave the environment of home, family, pets, and gardens daily
to support those very people and places we so joyfully tend each evening?
Can't we simultaneously immerse and surround ourselves with both hard work and hard play within the same environment?" With careful planning and a gulp of courage, InfoCrofters was born in our home-based office in 1998!
And what about that name ... InfoCrofters?
In Medieval times, crofters cultivated land alongside their cottages while crafting products to sell -- reflecting their talents, whether that be weaving, blacksmithing, woodworking .... the original
home-office workers! My English Stringfield ancestors farmed long-narrow fields, "string fields", and likely made their living off the land whilst crafting homegrown specialty products or services.
