8 Years in My Made Up Job: Alternative pathways to career success

Presented at the 2018 Young Professionals in Higher Education Conference at the Rochester Institute of Technology:

When I quit my favourite job of all time to pursue my dream job, it was a struggle. What I thought would be an easy road turned out to be a path of long hours, a lot of coffee, fitness, introspection, listening, and authenticity. In this talk, you will learn what it takes to be a higher education professional, thought leader, blogger, and speaker. It’s a story of putting in plenty of time and effort, a bit of luck, and moving to a completely different higher education sector.
