Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

  • 1.

    Wanted to be in a medical career, so got my nurse assistant degree summer of 10th grade.

  • 2.

    Hurt my back in a bad accident; moved up to front office of nursing home.

  • 3.

    Applied for an accounting manager job, totally under-qualified, got an interview.

  • 4.

    I got the job and two days later found out I was going to be laid off with a bank merger.

  • 5.

    Stuck out that job and through a retain program, moved into corporate office as a secretary.

  • 6.

    Moved up within that company based on hard work and willingness to learn.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    You won't be able to be successful in banking without a degree.

  • How I responded:

    I used my strengths and hard work. I didn't have money for college and I had a family to support, so college was out, but I used my time at work to learn and grow.
