Class of 2004, Bachelor's

Life is unpredictable.  I worked in as an Associate Producer for KNSD in San Diego after college, but two years into it, I decided struggling to pay bills was not for me.  I switched gears, moved to the beach, and got a job working in finance for the City of Oceanside.  That was the best decision I ever made.  I met my husband here and now we spend our days fishing and playing with our puppy, Julio.  This is definitely not how I pictured my future, but it is amazing and I am as happy as ever.
