Life & Career Milestones

My path in life took a while to figure out

  • 1.

    In high school I participated in science fairs to gain first hand skills.

  • 2.

    In high school I took industrial arts. Turns out knowing how to work with wood / tools was instrumental in successes.

  • 3.

    I started out college at the UW in Biology, and almost failed out. I needed to be where I could be inspired.

  • 4.

    At Humboldt State, I was able to find mentors in the field of Marine Biology and found ways to volunteer to gain experience, a.k.a. fish hatchery and marine lab.

  • 5.

    After graduation, my initial career path was blocked, but because I had put myself in a position for any opportunity, opportunities presented themselves that I never dreamed.

  • 6.

    After 10 years hitting every dream I could ever have wished for, my career paths changed.

  • 7.

    I came back to Wyoming to work for our family business, a Cable TV Provider. There I dove into technology, helping launch Digital TV and the Internet in RS/GR.

  • 8.

    After 20 years helping run the business, we sold to All West Communications. An opportunity to help our company grow and be successful led me to my new role.

Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Society in general:

    You can't be a marine biologist coming from Wyoming.

  • How I responded:

    For me, being a marine biologist was at the core of who I wanted to be. I found mentors who could help me prepare for opportunity and made sure I had a full range of experiences to help me along the way. Music, art, industrial arts, communication, technology are all facets that help build a fulfilling life, even when your original goals are modified for what ever reason. Just wanting something isn't enough, you have to build the foundation for success and add to it daily.

  • In my initial career choice, I had no one that I could look to that had accomplished those goals. I had to find ways to build experience around that and be prepared for when opportunity presented itself.
