My regular relocation has allowed me to meet some amazing people and take on very interesting projects. I love navigating new spaces and challenges.
Along the way, I’m happy to report, I’ve never had a job that I didn’t like. Some were more stressful, and some more rewarding, but I’m grateful for all of them.
I enjoyed working for massive organizations like the US Department of Defense, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing. But entrepreneurship is what I was called to do, and I’m so happy I answered the call.
