My road in life took a while to figure out.
In Elementary and Middle school, I was heavily interested in History, Geography and Science.
When I looked at available careers for all 3 of my interests, Science looked most promising.
In college decided to pursue Math and Science majors, so I would have an exciting career.
I also loved Business so decided to pursue an MBA with major in Computer Information Systems.
Then I was recruited from MBA school to the IT organization in AT&T. Start of an exciting career!
