My first coach was my grandmother. Her work ethic inspired me to push hard to achieve my goals, from competitive swimming starting when I was 8 years old to putting myself through college. Over the years, I have been blessed to benefit from the guidance of many mentors. Even my husband and two small children are coaches in their own way, keeping me grounded and focused on the right priorities.

We were talking about her job as well as mine.

John Bohn This Is Why I Joined Aha!

I love discovering new things. As a kid, I taught myself to program text-based adventure games on a TI-99/4A in BASIC.
