A dancer on Broadway.  I could tap dance like no other back in the day.

Now I’m in marketing/fundraising…how the hell did I get here?

I wanted to be a Marine Biologist! I actually followed through with that – I have a B.S. in Marine Bio and a Masters in Biological Oceanography. I studied marine microbiology then, and study human microbiology now. Loved those years spent in the field traveling all over the world!

I wanted to be a doctor and then a teacher.  I went the teacher route but not all the way.  I am now starting law school for family law.  We’ll see how this one pans out.

A lawyer. That was a real plan until I realized how much schooling is involved… Then I did 2 years for photography. Now I’m completely lost. Oh being young!

When I was 12 I wanted to be an astronaut haha. I went to space camp twice and was obsessed with space. Huge nerd alert. Clearly, I am not an astronaut.

Not sure about 12, but when I was younger I wanted to be a vet.  Still do sometimes!  I love so many things it is difficult to choose.

In middle school I wanted to be an attorney like my dad. 

I am an artist.  Signed up for the most non-straight forward career path possible :/

I wanted to be a cop (because my grandfather was one). The older I got the more I realized I did not want to deal with that crap on a daily basis and see all the ugly in the world.

I wanted to be an interior designer or an art teacher.


I went into teaching, but I haven’t found it to be as enjoyable as I thought.  (An elementary teacher)  I’m currently seeking a different career path.

I wanted to be a mortician. Sounds morbid but it was just what I wanted to do. I was working on my Bachelor’s degree and headed to Mortuary School. I kept up with my plan until 2009 when I got a job with the government. With the job security that comes with a government jon and the economy the way it is, I guess that will have to take a back seat. But, the good thing is that I can always do that when I retire…in 2039. LOL.
