“I was unsure what I wanted to do when I graduated. A friend of my mother’s worked as a career coach and suggested I take a career interest inventory survey. I did, and it showed my interests were predominantly in the IT sector. I went with it, and the rest is history! The IT landscape is constantly changing. In order to be effective in this industry, you need to be in a continual learning cycle to keep up with the changes. I’ve always enjoyed learning and pushing my own boundaries,  which helps keep the work fresh and fun.”
