According to all career research, the average person changes careers at least four times in their life, whether they want to or not.  As a career counselor, I have the opportunity to help students “bridge the gap” between life today and their hope of a meaningful career in the future.  

I present my career path not to “brag”, but to share how my life has changed.  At age 19 or 20, I could never have expected my life to be as it is today.  I have not always accepted my changes easily, but in the long run they have all turned out better than I could have hoped for.  I have always worked hard.   Some say that I have gone to school too much.  I’m not rich, but I am happy and I love my work.
