Graduating in the first recession of 2008 taught me some hard lessons. Previous advice from adults was just to “get a degree in something, you’ll figure out your career,” but the shift of entry-level jobs becoming so scarce in 2008 definitely proved that mentality to be outdated. So I carved out my path the hard way as I didn’t have access to developer bootcamps and consultant agencies producing bootcamps for admins.

What do I want to be when I grow up? I started working directly out of high school. I bounced around a bit trying to find the type of job that fit me. I was adamant at the time that I did not want a job sitting at a computer all day. At that age, though, I wasn’t sure what I wanted and didn’t have experience to guide me so I aimed for jobs that I had a talent for.

Starting out: A career in public service Tech consulting was never the plan. Originally, I went to college with the goal of attending law school and working my way into the realm of state politics. The dream: serve the people of my home state of North Carolina as a U.S. Senator. The work I do now on the Now Platform is somewhat of a second (or third?) career, but has fulfilled my original dream in a way that an elected office never could.
