I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. In college, I picked social work as a major because it didn’t require a lot of math or science classes and because it was comforting to me to know that when I graduated, I would be qualified to actually do something. At one point, I toyed with the idea of going to law school but ultimately went on to get a masters degree in social work because it seemed like the logical next step on the career path I was on.
I never enjoyed being a social worker though. I feel things too much and as much as I love people and wanted to make a difference, I was never able to leave my job at work and the thought of doing what I was doing for the next 40 years was incredibly depressing to me. I could go on and on with boring details about how I got to where I am, but I’ll spare you and just say, that I feel incredibly blessed to be doing what I do today.
I love my job BLISS. I never, ever thought I’d be able to say that.
