So here I am, Cathy Wells. Changing careers can be daunting. Changing careers while moving half way across the country IS daunting. But this is the exact challenge I have set before myself. Throughout my education and career I have done a number of different things and from these experiences, I have grown and learned and all that. This learning has resulted in an epiphany and have actually figured out What I want to do when I grow up!
Get myself on a career path that encompasses planning philanthropic entertainment events and move my family back home to Minnesota.
Yes, it is quite a dream. I do , however, know I have the skills to benefit such an endeavor. I love event planning and the bigger the event, the happier I am. My educational background is in theater and to this day, nothing compares to the vibe of a stage. Professionally, the closest I’ve gotten to this dream is planning numerous associate engagement/appreciation events for my staff of 1,600 and providing monthly community service opportunities for them. Unfortunately for me, all of this activity has fallen under my title of Executive Assistant so, you could say, this butterfly has yet to find its wings.
