My road in life took a while to figure out.
I hadn't even considered college as an option until a project in High School required us to look.
To get my family on board with my going to college, I entered as an accounting major.
I joined a student Ambassador group and met the Dean of the School of Education.
I changed majors to Education and got further involved and learned about Student Affairs.
I went to graduate school and worked in Residence Life.
Working with staff teams and upper division students, I learned about Career Services.
