There's never one path to reach your dream job, and I think I'm the perfect example of that! After years of working in PRTM where I discovered my love of training and developing others, I shifted careers and discovered the ins and outs of Human Resources. As a lifelong learner, I feel it was inevitable that I ended up in Higher Education, first serving and coaching students in reaching their career goals, and now teaching and learning from them within the new Bachelor of Science in Human Capital Education and Development degree program within Clemson's College of Education.
