    I remember when I was in college, I felt like career options were endless. How could I ever pick a career path to follow? Things sort of fell into place for me, and I went with it, but the work wasn’t ever something I’d imagined myself doing.

    If you could do anything you wanted to earn a living, what would it be?

    I’ve ALWAYS wanted to buy up a bunch of abandoned properties, renovate them and create home ownership programs for low income families. On top of that, offer life skills and job training programs, drug interventions, and after school programs. Everyone deserves a nice, safe place to live (that someday they can OWN) and to give their children a chance at higher education and just plain breaking the cycle.

    ECDI does a bit of that as well.

    Go back if that’s what you want. I finished my teaching certificate when I was 33 after going to school part time. Not a single regret in my career switch. I was good at finance but this is where I’m supposed to be.

    Growing up, I thought it would be neat to build gardens and work with stone for walks, walls, etc. After 25 years in cubicles, now I’m building gardens, but I’m working with water to make rain gardens.

    Seriously contemplating it!
