I am starting a new career at almost 50. My husband passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2009, which was a catalyst for a whole bunch of changes in my life as I am sure you can imagine. Not to be too dramatic, but I was standing at a gas pump, filling the tank on my car, crying, anticipating the death of my husband of 25 years. I was thinking, "What am I going to do now?" Something inside me said, "You know what to do. Do what you have always planned to do, become a counselor." This was true. It is a long story, but the short version is I knew it was exactly what I needed to do. So I did. Six months after my husband died, I took my first counseling class. Two years later, I have my Masters of Arts in Counseling, 1000 hours of unpaid internship and I work in a private practice as Registered Florida Mental Health Counselor intern.
