I am not ruling out another career -- I am in my late 50's but I am drawing retirement pay and am teaching part time. Most of the time I enjoy my life and I have time to explore some fun things. Last year, I got a championship on a dog. Currently I am learning more about mobile app development through a Grow with Google Scholarship Udacity Nanodegree Scholarship and I am a student leader.
I spent my first years getting there -- working in tech in high school, getting scholarships, getting through college and getting established.
I worked for over 10 years for Texas Instruments and I was a very cool job, first with GSI and then with Equipment Group but it was a struggle being a woman.
I had a over 25 year career as a teacher -- won lots of awards and loved my students -- the pinnacle being my STEM award -- TI Foundation inducts first ten teachers into STEM Academy as fellows - and my first Robotics team being asked to compete at state competition.
I even went back into industry working on a mobile payment app. That was a contract gig.
I've got lots to offer career advice wise and happy to help.
