My road in life has taken me all over.
Graduated from an excellent liberal arts college.
Took the first job that I could find.
Wasn't afraid to make a change, 4 jobs in my first two years out of college.
Left the workforce to care for my children and moved to another state.
Looked for an opportunity to combine something I loved with a job.
Took a chance on a career change.
Kept moving towards a final goal but willing to step back to get ahead.
Never said "no" or "I don't know how to do that."
