My road in life has been direct.
When she was growing up, math was her favorite subject, so everyone pushed her into engineering.
She went to a college that was known for its excellent engineering program, but when she got there, she realized she hated it.
Without telling anyone, she switched her major and started studying to become a teacher.
When she finally told her parents she was going to be a teacher, they freaked out and told her she'd never make any money.
Says that she always knew that if she was doing good as a teacher, she wouldn't care if she was broke.
She spent six few years teaching, then she became a corporate trainer with AT&T.
Now she works with the AT&T Foundry, building mutually beneficial relationships between small tech startups and AT&T.
Says that even though it seems she's stepped away from teaching, she still gets to mentor young people, which is what she loves.
