- About karen1972
- North Carolina
- Retirement Year
- Gardening, finance, politics, travel, writing a book that I haven't figured out if I will ever publish.
- Farm girl from Wisconsin. Graduated with a degree in math and computer science and post degree classes in finance. Worked for fortune 500 companies scaling the corporate ladder but looking to early retire and redirect my energy towards volunteering and outdoor recreation.
I've been a Programmer, Project Manager, Product Manager, Quality Assurance, System Engineer, Marketing, Supply Chain. I've flipped houses and took cooking classes.. ie and still can't figure out what I want to do when I grow up... good thing I have 50 years of retirement to figure that out.
Retirement to me just means I don't have to work a job that sucks any longer. If I choose to do something it is actually by choice because it brings joy and fun to my life vs. because I need the paycheck.
