What is my professional experience? 

I am an experienced business professional and educator. Here's my story: 

What is my instructional experience? 

Though I was very successful and my career was progressing rapidly, I felt a tug, a compelling, a pull in another direction. I felt like I needed to pursue my purpose and follow a life-long desire to be a teacher. I knew I would make much less and there was not a lot of business teaching openings at the time, but I had to take the risk and see what the world had in store for me.
