I have been working with computers for most of my life and here is how I came to be on this site.
I have been interested in computers from the first time I started working with them in 1974. I was employed by the Power Company in my hometown and working at the Customer Service Department. The customers would come to our office to pay their monthly bills and when they did not have a copy of their bill with them, I would access the computer system and get a copy of their bills so that they knew how much to pay. I thought it was amazing that this machine could do such things and vowed to learn as much as possible about how it did its work. I was 21 years old at the time and needless to say, that started my lifelong obsession with all things computer.
I enrolled in a 2 year Computer Programming course at a Technical College and my career as a Programmer began. After several jobs and moving up the ladder in my field, I decided to take a break and start a family. While on the break, my former husband and I decided to start a business. My skills were needed for this business so that ended the career path that I had worked so hard to achieve but set me on a new career path. After many stress-filled and lean years of building the new business, we were finally on solid footing and things seemed to be going smoothly when I was hit with a new dilemma. We decided to divorce and that set me on a new career path. I immediately enrolled in a course to become a Computer Network Technician. I was in my early 40s and unbeknownst to me, the world had become ageist. Even though I graduated at the top of my class, I was not able to secure a position in my field of study. I spent the next 5 years doing office work until my ex-husband came calling to ask me to come to work full time in our business as the Office/IT Manager. I was now able to put my networking skills to use by revamping all the computer hardware/software in our office.
