Not an Easy Transition

Erika has always been focused on her career and education. She had to take a step back from her goals when her husband got reassigned. They moved from Alaska to Idaho.

“All of a sudden you get orders to move, and it just throws everything for a loop.” -Erika Heeren

She landed a job in an IT company. It was not easy having to move from a management position to an administrative role. Erika had to fill in the gaps for her own professional background.

Back On Track

Erika eventually had the opportunity to pursue her Bachelor’s degree. She shares how lucky she was for finding a job that allowed her to continue with her goals.

“You have to be the one that’s flexible. You have to be the one that’s bendable and able to adapt your own career and your own lifestyle.” -Erika Heeren

There were a lot of risks involved in the shift. She spent around 6 months arguing about it. She knew she had to do something about her passion, and needed flexibility to pursue it.
