but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Karen's story

I am a single mother who has raised two grown children. I had my daughter when I was a Senior in High School and I graduated on time. I have had some college education but after working for the PO for 15 years, I found a new career in the IT industry. I started as a developer and worked my way up to Senior level and for the past 10 years have moved into the Management side and held positions as Software Manager, IT Director and Senior Project Manager. I have nearly taught myself everything I know which I believe anyone can achieve, if you work hard enough to strive for success. During my entire career, I have taught dance to young dancers from 3 years old to high school. I believe that it is a passion that no one can teach you but will provide you a life time of rewards. I have always balanced both my personal career and my dance business successfully for nearly 30 years. I feel that the two intersect at a perfect balance of creativity & strategic decision making skills.
