As far backÂ as I can remember I have been curious about how people shaped their lives, or to put it another way, how peopleâ€™s lives were shaped. I noticed some people had the answers and knew where they were going and how to get there. While others, seemed to be carried along by the currents of events outside their control not knowing how, when, where or why. Me, I was a mixture of both. I knew I wanted a successful career, a satisfying relationship and to be a loving parent. However, I did not know how to create the reality of my dreams.
As a young adult I landed a job at a large retail company, began moving up the corporate ladder and started a family. IÂ devoted myself to both my passions of family and career. Along the way I discovered my voice and learned about my personal power. In turn my life became mine to create and design.
With that revelation, I set out to create a life based on my personal values. I loved learning, so, I entered college in my mid-thirties. It was a Â juicyÂ endeavor of knowledge and books. Meanwhile, I was promoted from a retail management position to a recruiter in human resources. I worked as a recruiter for over 15 years. I Â flourished and I felt satisfied.
At the same time I finished raising my two children and two step children. At this point I had an empty nest.Â Several years ago I decided it was time for me create another path. I desired a career where I could be of service to people in helping them design and create a life of their choosing. I decided to return to school. I earned a masters degree in counseling.
