Biltmore Who’s Who Selects Paul Robinson as this week’s Honored Member of the Executive and Professional Registry for 2009.
Paul Robinson, Military Officer and Director for the United States Marine Corps, has been selected as an Honored Member of the Biltmore Who’s Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes Paul Robinson’s commitment to excellence in government and military.
Robinson, who holds a BBA in Management from Northwood University, followed by an MBA from Columbia Southern University, has spent the last twenty-six years of his career as a marine officer.
As a military officer for the Marines, Robinson maintains quality assurance of information systems, supports the deployment units, oversees the maintenance of personnel records, and is the director of Marine Forces Reserve Installation. “My experience interacting with the service men and women has been mainly in leadership, physical training, and career enhancement,” he said.
With his military career soon coming to a close, Robinson hopes to land an instructor position where he can teach at the university level. He is currently working on his master’s degree in Human Resource Development at Villanova University in hopes of developing a better sense of the civilian sector and corporate culture. “Although I have been training and developing young people, I have not been involved in the personal aspect of employee’s careers, work life, and benefits,” he explained. “I believe by earning my master’s degree, I will be better prepared.”
More recently, Robinson has been involved with the Wound Warrior initiatives. He has traveled throughout the country visiting wounded Marines at Medical treatment facilities and the Veterans Administration Hospital. The purpose of his travels was to ensure that the wounded Marine and his/her family members were receiving the correct pay, entitlements, and support that they rated returning from combat. The experience of seeing those young men and women still motivated after all they endured, Robinson said, “was well worth my six months of traveling and over four hundred record audits that were conducted.”
Robinson is currently certified in equal opportunity management through the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute in Coco, Florida. He serves on the board of directors for the Military Officer Association of America. He has won numerous awards, including an Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal in 1997, two Marine Corps Commendation Awards, an Achievement Award from the US Navy, and two Good Conduct Medals. He volunteers his time to the Adopt-A-School Program, acts as a mentor to young men and women in his community, and also coaches various sports. In his spare time, Paul enjoys playing golf, painting, and doing sketch art.

Biltmore Who’s Who Selects Joyce G. Parker as this week’s Honored Member of the Executive and Professional Registry for 2009.
Joyce G. Parker, Volunteer Supervisor and Senior Mentor of WikiAnswers, has been selected as an Honored Member of the Biltmore Who’s Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes Joyce G. Parker’s commitment to excellence in volunteerism.
Parker, who stumbled over her newly found position by accident in March of 2008, began by doing some research on the company’s site in an effort to gather some information for a relative. After posting a question and getting a response in just a few minutes, she became curious about the organization, and quickly joined as a contributor. Within two weeks, she was approached on becoming a volunteer supervisor for the site, and has been volunteering with them ever since.
With no minimum time requirements, Parker went from a supervisor to a senior mentor, after graduating from their mentor program. Working in all areas, but as a supervisor in the Children and Divorce category, she answers questions and makes sure that all questions are appropriate to each category. “Many people who post questions aren’t sure which category their question should be posted. As a result, they end up in the wrong categories, delaying their questions from being answered,” she explained. She also spends time editing spelling, grammar, punctuation of questions, and answers on the site. As a supervisor, she also helps control vandalism on the site with warnings and eventually blocking their ability to use the site altogether. Vandals, she said, are those that delete good, accurate answers and replace them with nonsense answers. She also trains new supervisors and helps new mentors “learn the ropes” of being a mentor to new supervisors.
Parker is experienced in various fields, including real estate, banking, insurance, and medical office management. Her extensive experience in working with people has proved invaluable to her volunteer position. “We have contributors from all over the world,” she said. “So having good people skills is a must. Also, having experience in the various fields as I do has enabled me to answer questions in a number of categories. I never realized just how many different areas of need there are in which people need help and answers until I started volunteering.”
During her first year with WikiAnswers, Parker was the recipient of two WAmmy Awards for Answer of the Year and Best Advice Answer. That following year, she won two WAmmy Awards in the same two categories, being the first person to ever win those same two awards twice. She was also awarded the Going the Extra Mile Award for her research and phone calls in an effort to answer a question. Passionate about her charity affiliations, Parker is a guardian member of the ASPCA. She hopes to eventually spend more of her free time on WikiAnswers and helping others, as well as helping abused animals in the future, which she says, is the most rewarding and satisfying thing she could ever imagine. In her free time, Joyce enjoys photography, cake decorating, and animal rights.
