It is without hesitation that I say I am lucky.
So many of my colleagues sort of meandered into the IT field and project management. They enjoy it (mostly) but it isn’t their passion… one friend started as a Federal DEA Agent and ending up an IT PM…
Me? It has been in my blood since my first little Commodore 64... since my high school put in the first computer lab in the district with Apple IIe... I mean… fun AND air conditioning!!!!
I have taught others since then, and mentored my share of people that went on to do greater things than I; I learn new things all the time and am challenged every day to help others excel.
What more could you ask for in a career? (Oh… and they pay me to do it… BONUS)
