My road in life took a while to figure out.
When I was in high school, I wanted to be a pediatrician and took tons of science and math
In college, I decided science wasn't for me, but I still wanted to do something with children. I majored in Child Development and tried out different internships.
After graduating college, I couldn't decide what I wanted to do. I ended up as an assistant to the CEO of a research company where I remained for 4 years eventually becoming Research Manager.
I applied to a business school in Barcelona, Spain and was accepted. I decided it wasn't my passion and didn't go.
I took about a year to decide what to do next while waitressing at a restaurant. Career Services at Tufts recommended school counseling, so I decided to look into it.
I applied and was accepted to the Counseling Psychology program at Boston College and loved every class that I took.
After receiving my Master's, I started working at a small high school in Western Massachusetts and stayed there for three years until my son was born. I then moved to Texas to be closer to family.
I started working in Little Elm 5 years ago at the high school. I moved to the alternative campus with a district support position a year ago where I get to do more counseling and train others.
