I am the Director of Programming at Sage Corps, a role that allows me to bring together my previous experiences in the corporate and education sectors. My first job was with Accenture. It was a perfect gig for me at age 22. I learned so much about the business world, about the different cities where I traveled to on a regular basis, and about myself.
After five years I realized that consulting was not the best long-term career path for me, so I took a leap of faith and became a high school teacher. Teaching was much more personally fulfilling. I loved working with great kids and helping to prepare them for their eventual roles as stewards of our world.
At Sage Corps, our Fellows have already accomplished so much in their 20 or so years. It is incredibly exciting to think about what they will achieve in the next 20.
