My road in life took a while to figure out.
I had a an amazing family and always had a strong support system in my family.
After high school, I chose to venture out on my own, I soon realized I needed to choose my path.
I wanted to be an electrician, I met an Army recruiter at a diner...fate then led me to the military.
2 weeks before graduating from flight school, I almost dropped out, my Dad's encouragement...
...saying, "Anne, you never quit anything, and you're not quitting now." I made it through.
My dad died 11 years ago, but before he passed, he told me, "You're livin' life; you keep living."
After service, I worked for Microsoft before entering the nonprofit sphere and starting RP / 6.
We partnered with the USO to launch RP / 6 into a national organization, which is incredibly exciting.
Keep following my journey

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for professionals

The most important first step is to realize what your passion, personal and professional goals are and ask yourself the question, do they align with your new career path? Do you have the education or certification to be successful in your new career path? Find a mentor and seek their advice, listen and learn from their experience. Develop a plan that is realistic, challenge yourself in each milestone met and most importantly remain true to yourself; hard work, tenacity and focus will pay off.

The Noise I Shed

From Peers:

"People said; 'you don't belong here, you are a woman in a man's world' During transition, I was offered a job at a major company in Seattle, I met with the hiring manager who offered the position and he said, "you don't have a degree, so I can't hire you."
