I worked in retail and worked my way up in the ranks within the retail industry through my early twenties to become a store manager. I did that until I was 28 years old and I then made the decision I was just tired of the physical labor and low-paying positions and I wanted a change. I eventually got a job in I/T support and started out at what (originally) felt like starting over...but turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life! I shortly became a Senior Enterprise Level Network Engineer and Designer within 2 years and enjoyed working for several Fortune 500 companies in the computer networking field for a total of 18 years. I absolutely love helping those who are just starting out in computer networking, helping them really get their own careers and/or businesses off to a great start!
