Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

  • 1.

    Grew up watching my dad work 2 jobs to support our family. Mom stayed home and worked just as hard.

  • 2.

    First job at age 15; working at a concession stand at the local movie theatre. I wanted my own $.

  • 3.

    Worked 30 hours a week while going to college full time. It was hard but I wanted a degree.

  • 4.

    Didn't know what I wanted to "be" so chose a degree with a wide variety of studies: ECON/HR/BUS.

  • 5.

    It was TOUGH finding a job post 9/11. Took a contract position as a cabling Project Manager.

  • 6.

    Found that I loved managing and organizing projects and people. After a year, the contract ended.

  • 7.

    Was offered a position as a technical recruiter. Rocked that role for 7 years and learned so much.

  • 8.

    Wanted a complete change so I joined Hobsons as an SM .. then a SR ... and now a manager.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    I grew up in a mid to low income neighborhood with a negative reputation. I felt embarrassed to tell people where I was raised and even worse that I went to public school there. As soon as I told them, I felt judged. I felt less worthy.

  • How I responded:

    My family, coaches and friends filled me with encouragement. My mom always told me I could be anything I wanted to be. She instilled me with self confidence, common sense and a desire to be better. She said, "Don't rely on anybody else, your life is what you make of it." She encouraged me to attend college, embrace my background and be something that I am proud of. I was the first person in my family to graduate with a Bachelor's degree.

Experiences and challenges that shaped me

Click to expand

  • My family didn't have a lot of money when I was growing up. My mom and dad sacrificed to send me to college. I was motivated to succeed by their sacrifice and the desire to make them proud. Walking across the stage to get my diploma was so rewarding.

  • I was a first-generation college student. I was fortunate not to have any predetermined expectations to live up to (i.e. "you'll be a lawyer like I was") but it was also hard to be the first.
