Author Info

Jeff Chaltas is a Kansas City-based writer and editor with extensive experience in the telecommunications, higher education, agricultural economics, healthcare, information security and legal industries. In his various communications roles, he has frequently used his inexplicable affection (almost an obsession) for acronyms to develop industry-specific lists of acronyms and their meanings to the benefit of his employers. That is one reason why Jeff accumulated thousands of human resources and employment law acronyms over the last six years while creating a book entitled The Dictionary of Human Resources and Employment Law Acronyms. In the legal field, he worked as a proposal writer and data steward for a leading employment law firm for five years. He is currently an editor, under contract to the U.S. government, of agricultural economics research reports. In his academic pursuits, Jeff earned two bachelor's degrees (journalism and horticulture) and two master's degrees (journalism and an MBA).
