Once upon a time a smart and savvy girl walked across her college stage.
She said her goodbyes, left memories behind and entered a new age.
She set out to conquer the real world: a place she imaged would be divine.
But once she got there, she realized it wasn’t so fine.
Her life seemed like an overwhelming buffet of choices. How could she possibly decide?
How to balance Work, Home, Self and Love and handle it all with stride.
While she made many mistakes, changes and improvements along the way,
She gave thanks to the help of her friends, family and a few blogs she checked in with every day.
Meet Ms. Career Girl: today’s girl who wants it all.
A career she loves, a home she cherishes, a strong sense of self and a plus one with whom she can have a ball.
Ms. Career Girl is not perfect, but she is strong and she is unique.
Ms. Career Girl is you and she is me.

When I left the comforts of my college town, I anticipated a Carrie Bradshaw-like version of life after college. A few years later, I was wondering, “is this it?!” and Ms. Career Girl was born. Soon after, my own career journey went from blah to BOOM!, making the name Ms. Career Girl almost ironic. I’ve worked at two banks, one start-up and today at a digital marketing agency. I’ve changed my career path with little experience during a recession. I’ve been laid off. I’ve been self-employed. I’ve been an adjunct professor. I’ve had debt. I’ve had heartbreak. And all of these experiences taught me that our every day choices ultimately define our lives. Today, I’m married, settled into my dream career and styling my life in Chicago.
