I moved to Atlanta after graduating from college to pursue a career in communications given the city’s reputation for being a media magnet. I quickly discovered, however, that getting my foot in the door had more to do with who you know, not what you know.
I was very involved with sports throughout my youth and understood the value of staying active. After graduating from college, I immediately began working as a K-8 PE teacher and taught at the same school for six years.
After graduating from college, I worked as an outdoor recreation therapist providing wilderness therapy, and worked with children recovering from injury in outpatient transition care for 3.5 years.
