Did your education prepare you for your career?
Somewhat. Detail oriented and organization skills mostly.

A little introspection...

To me, being successful means...
being happy!

I thought it was more about accomplishments and things earlier on than my feelings and experiences.

Being a happy working mom and wife with a successful career.

My biggest mistake or regret so far and what I’ve learned from it

When my cousin in her 20s was diagnosed with cancer and died three years later. I make sure to enjoy and find the good and positivity in everything and savor what I have.
