My road in life took a while to figure out.
Worked in the garment industry before I got married and started a family.
Got married, worked full time until I had my first child.
I stayed home while my children were small, then went to work in my husband's printing company.
I had to start learning all over again, because things changed while I was home.
My husband got into a serious car accident which left him disabled, so I started working for an insurance company.
I applied for a job at Capital One and over the years I had jobs with cash handling experience.
