I spent 6 years as a family law attorney, and decided three years ago that I had had enough of litigating custody cases and trying to make a living off of other people's emotional devestation. It really, really sucked . . .

 

So now I LOVE my job teaching law at the college level. I am the program director for both a paralegal program and also a criminal justice program. With this job, I feel a sense of accomplishment and feel good about affecting students' lives in a positive way.

 

So many students have such low self esteem, and many have never been encouraged to go after their dreams. I can't tell you how many times I have had students tell me that they had always been told they were stupid and could never make it in college. So few have ever experienced a truly supportive family and it is just so sad. However, with some encouragement from faculty and hard work on their part, I see them gain the self confidence necessary to go after what they want. It is amazing to watch!

 

My Fiancee is a pilot with Delta Airlines based in Cincinnati, so he is gone for days at a time. The airline industry sucks . . . but I don't want to get started on a rant or I won't be able to get to sleep!

Fi and I both work for Verizon Wireless as data support technicians. Our entire day is spent solving the issues that regular support techs cannot correct when customer's call in reporting outages, trouble with PDA's, blackberry's and data cards. We both have multiple PC certifications. Hiram is a HUGE geek so it's suits him perfectly. He's the go to guy at work for everyone's tech problems (and mine at home).

 

Me on the other hand... I ended up there because the mortgage company I worked for feel prey to the housing crisis 3 years ago. My degree is in finance but I minored in computer engineering. So I'm a dork by default. :)

I'm the office coordinator in the financial aid office of a hospital...it's a lot of customer service, which can suck at times, but it can also be pretty rewarding since I get to help people..
