I am a people person, so I loved working with clientele. I was given the opportunity to advance. I started out as Housing Secretary and worked my way up to running the Section 8 Program. I was given the opportunity to broaden my knowledge of the Housing Field by attending State, Regional and National Housing Conferences and eventually holding offices at those levels.
After 16 yrs working at a job in a city where you LITERALLY know everyone, running into clients out at dinner, grocery shopping and clients approaching me outside of the job, it kind of wears you down. Eventually, after having to care for a terminally ill mother, I chose to resign.
