On finding the courage to start a new career
On switching gears to a career in Geospatial
Rung provided a gateway into Geospatial through their collaboration with Maryville and local employers, support of Rung staff and volunteers, and networking opportunities to meet and learn from women in the Geospatial field. Currently, I am a 3D Production Technician at Maxar. I earn $6200 more per year plus additional benefits that were not available to me previously like dental insurance, an opportunity for advancement, and a chance to be part of a company that values and respects its employees.
Describe your experience as a Rung member
My experience has been one of reflection and inspiration. Reflection of myself and inspiration from other women. I’ve experienced a sense of belonging to something bigger; being more than just existing and struggling.
On her Aha! moment
When I realized that I am worthy of a better life for myself and my family. I don’t have to be stuck in a position or job just because I thought that’s where I belonged. That I am capable of making my life whatever I choose it to be.
On her future goals
I see myself advancing on my career path through continuous learning and growing as an individual. I see myself contributing to a community that encourages growth, well-being, and advancement for women.
