Growing up, I always had a love for solving problems and figuring out how things worked. So it made sense that I pursued a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After graduating, I landed a job as a mechanical design engineer at a great company. I enjoyed my work, but I realized my true passion was in visual design.
I started taking classes at my community college and fell in love with the creativity and freedom that came with design. However, I knew I needed to expand my skill set, so I started teaching myself web design and coding. I was determined to make my dream a reality.
And then the pandemic hit. Like so many others, I found myself out of a job. But instead of feeling defeated, I saw it as an opportunity to focus all my energy on learning how to be a great designer. I spent every day reading, learning, and practicing. And it paid off.
Now, I'm able to help other female entrepreneurs live their dreams and run their own businesses. By creating beautiful branding and websites, I'm able to help them stand out and make a name for themselves in a crowded market. It's a true joy to wake up every day and do what I love, and to help others do the same.
So, whether you're a fellow engineer or just someone looking to pursue your passion, know that it's never too late to chase your dreams. It may take some hard work and determination, but the payoff is always worth it.
