I was asked about my career background, and where I have worked, and I had to think about what to say. I found it interesting on how to answers it. Do I focus on my broadcasting experience, college athletics background, sales work, fundraising success, economic development career, education training or what?
How would you answer that question?

As a young child, I always wanted to be an astronaut. When Space Shuttle Columbia made its maiden voyage in 1981 I was obsessed with space. How cool would that be to go into space on a rocket ship and land back safely on earth like an airplane?
I had an LP record (yes a vinyl record) that I listened to over and over again with the narration of the launch of STS-1 on April 12, 1981. I could listen to Astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen talking to Mission Control. I thought it was so cool they could talk from space to Houston, Texas.
I made up my mind at age seven I was going to be an astronaut. Anytime I had a writing assignment for a class or an art project to make - it was going to be about space.
