“Before the program, I spent eight years at home with my two kiddos after stepping away from my career when my youngest was born. Now, my daily life consists of morning calls with our technical team in Jaipur, discovery sessions with our clients, creating user stories, demoing new functionality and ultimately, enabling a successful outcome of our projects. I’ve had the chance to work with some amazing clients and collaborate with co-workers across a number of continents. My role is often challenging, yet it continues to push me to grow both personally and professionally.
On a personal level, returning to the workforce has certainly eased the burden we felt as a family relying on just one income. Eliminating our debt was our first priority and we are almost there! My husband and I were finally able to put together a realistic plan for retirement. It has always been our goal to retire on the early side, yet we weren’t able to make much progress until now. We have increased our 401k contributions this year and set a goal to retire in 15 years. It’s quite exciting to work towards this step and know that it is possible now thanks to my new career.”
