Bio:

I have gotten experience in every type of industry - health, space science, marketing, entertainment, etc. I can definitely speak to my experiences in each of these areas and how I 'blossomed' into a project manager at my current company. I have also just completed the law school application process (my goal is to become an entertainment lawyer), and so I can speak to what that was like and what led me to wanting to change my career.

Career Advice:

Try everything. Work in an industry you didn't even consider before when looking for internships, part-time work, etc. If you want to go back to school, definitely take some time off and let yourself gain some real-world experience.
