Profile Biography 
I worked as a data analyst for an intensive care unit in a hospital, and I loved it. After my husband completed his PhD and we moved to a new city for his post-doc, I decided to pursue my bachelor's in Computer Science. It's not easy (we have two little kids), but I know I'll be glad to have that degree in my hand.

The only way I figured out what I wanted to do for a career was to stumble into one. I got lucky. My recommendation for anyone who is still trying to figure out what they want to do when they grow up is to take advantage of as many internship opportunities as you can. As I write this, I'm in the middle of an internship, and it has been fantastic so far.
