Q. You joined us last year for our Career Catalyst program. During that time you were unsure of what your next career steps would be. Were you able to find some clarity during the program or did it take more time and introspection? What types of things did you do during your discernment process?

When I started the Career Catalyst program I was worried about ever finding a match for my varied skill set. The most productive time was with Nancy Jensen, one of the Swing Shift Founders, as she pressed a hard reset button on my belief system regarding my skills and talents.
