"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
- Jeremiah 29:11
Growing up, I knew I had always wanted to set a career for myself in something that I loved. Benjamin Franklin once said,
“Many people die at twenty five and aren’t buried until they are seventy five.”
At the age of 17--fresh out of high school--I wasn't ready for the risks of starting my own business. Consequently, the path that I was creating for myself when I had "planned" out my future in 2007 was much like the dreadful life that Benjamin Franklin had described; I had discovered a "safe", well paying job in the medical field but after waiting 3 years on the program's wait list--whilst completing all the necessary prerequisites-- I received notice that the school was dropping the program. "Is this God's sign that I shouldn't be doing this program after all?", I thought to myself. "No, it couldn't be. This just goes to show that not everything comes easy," I thought.
Fact: As early as 6th grade, I carried a disposable camera everywhere...
I enrolled in one of the 3 remaining statewide schools that offered the program, and started what was supposed to be another 2-year wait. Shortly after receiving notice that I was able to start in Green Bay the upcoming month of June, I packed up and moved to start my journey as a diagnostic medical sonographer. "FINALLY", I thought!
One of the last things I had to do before starting the program was to complete a job shadow and program orientation. During my job shadow experience, I noticed how NOBODY at the facility looked passionate about their jobs! I left feeling uneasy about the whole experience...
It was 3 am after I finished bartending that night when I had made up my mind.
"I CANNOT DO THIS! I WILL DIE AT THE AGE OF TWENTY FIVE AND WAIT UNTIL I'M SEVENTY FIVE TO BE BURIED. I CAN'T DO THIS. I CANNOT DO THIS! I WILL DIE AT TWENTY FIVE. I WILL DIE AT TWENTY FIVE!"
At 3:30 am, I was on my way to my parents' home in Plover, WI -- almost two hours away -- to notify my family of my exciting discovery! My vision was crystal clear. I was 2 or 3 days away from starting the ultrasound program when I dropped all of the courses and enrolled in the photography program. Although it might have taken me a little longer to realize the God-given purpose for my life, that was certainly okay with me! And today?... Today I'm truly blessed to call my passion my career, and I couldn't be more excited to be given the opportunity to work with you!
