My road in life took a while to figure out.
I went to college, met my husband, and had a baby at 21, which changed everything. Before that, I thought I might join the coast guard or be a paramedic.
I had another baby and I decided to go back to school to do my premed requirements.
I matriculated into medical school for a year, but at the same time, I had another baby and ended up feeling like I wasn’t giving my attention fully to anything.
I decided to leave medical school and began volunteering at my son's school.
I became the full-time admissions director there and taught Latin in the middle school; spent 15 years working there and had two more children.
For my last project, I took the school through accreditation and helped create that 100 page document.
Because I was writing for work every day, I figured I’d challenge myself to try to write something creative every night.
By the end of the year, I finished the project and had a draft of a novel. I decided that I could put my head down and do this writing thing full-time, so I did.
Keep following my journey
