Life & Career Milestones

I've taken a lot of twists and turns

  • 1.

    First I moved away from home after college to coach and manage a gymnastics facility.

  • 2.

    Then I decided to come back home and start in sales at a health club.

  • 3.

    While I enjoyed the entrepreneurship side of sales, I chose to fulfill my passion and teach.

  • 4.

    I went back to school to work on earning my teaching certificate & Masters in Education.

  • 5.

    Rough times came in 2009 & I couldn't find a teaching job. I went to a tech recruiting firm.

  • 6.

    It wasn't what I loved doing, so I started at an education software company.

  • 7.

    Finally, I worked my way back to the two things I love - sales and education.

  • 8.

    I work for a phenomenal company that allows me to be flexible, innovative, creative, and to travel!

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    You should continue to look for a teaching job, even though there aren't any coming around the corner.

  • How I responded:

    Don't be complacent and wait for things to come your way. Be proactive and don't let others stand in your way. Make things happen. I don't believe good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who take action.
