My road in life took a while to figure out.
First, I focused on getting my education to create a foundation for my future career.
Then I began to pursue other opportunities beyond the retail work I was doing during college.
I was hired in at Capital One with a job interacting directly with our customers on the phones.
Then I learned how to be successful in a support role doing case work for various groups.
