I am a working mother looking to make a career change. In my first career as a civil engineer, my aim was to change the world. After 18 years of working in the water and wastewater fields, I feel that I have given back to my communities. Now, I am looking to make a change into accounting with the intent of working part time so that I can be there for my family. After years of working over time and giving my all to my work, I’m looking to make a change so that I can give my all to my family. The world may lose a civil engineer in me, but it will gain a whole lot more in the person my daughter will become with more of my time and love invested in her.
