Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

  • 1.

    I got out of my comfort zone in college and was a student manager for our men's basketball team.

  • 2.

    I moved from a very small town to a very large city without knowing anyone and having little money.

  • 3.

    Without any money, my career started in the Great Recession.

  • 4.

    I left public accounting because I was burnt out and, quite frankly, a little immature. However, my network would pay off eventually.

  • 5.

    My former career coach referenced me for a job that would be unlike anything I've experienced previously.

  • 6.

    I went back to public accounting and thrived in my new role.

  • 7.

    Then I moved across the country and initially struggled adapting to my new community.

  • 8.

    But my network helped me again and I am where I am today as a result.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Friends:

    Don't pursue a career in public accounting, you'll work too many hours!

  • How I responded:

    Networking is incredibly important for any career and, while time can be measured numerically, your network can only be measured by yourself.
