St. Louis, Missouri (grew up in Dogtown)

First thing I remember wanting to be “when I grow up” as a kid:
In the 4th grade I wanted to be a scientist because I could wear a cool white lab coat and ‘do’ important experiments.

First “grown up” job:
Teaching accounting and business classes at a regional business college.  Note: I experienced major challenges learning Accounting and barely passed.  But when my role reversed to TEACHING Accounting, I understood why students struggled and was able to adjust my teaching style so they could understand.  One of my students went on to become an IRS agent… and another a successful business owner hmmm… must have gotten something right!

Fun Fact:
I ran a marathon in Dublin, Ireland to raise funds for a Joints in Motion for the arthritis foundation.

Advice to Students:
Understand your talents, skills and abilities and how to communicate your value to prospective employers.
