In the fast-paced world of finance and banking, I spent over 15 years navigating the intricacies of managing and growing assets for mid-size entrepreneurs. It was a rewarding career that allowed me to contribute to the financial success of many, but as time passed, I found myself grappling with burnout. That's when I made a life-altering decision—to leave corporate America behind and embark on an adventure in Spain with my husband and young child.
Chapter 1: Recognizing Burnout and Embracing Change
The first chapter of my journey involves the realization of burnout. Despite my success in the finance sector, the toll on my well-being became undeniable. Taking a leap of faith, I decided to prioritize my family and personal growth over the corporate grind.

Leaving behind the familiar, we packed our bags and headed to Spain, seeking a new perspective and a break from the corporate hustle. This chapter explores the challenges and joys of immersing ourselves in a new culture, embracing the unknown, and finding solace in the simplicity of family life.
Chapter 3: Learning and Adapting Abroad
Amidst the cobblestone streets of Spain, I didn't just relax—I reinvented myself. This chapter delves into how I utilized my time abroad to acquire new skills, particularly in the rapidly evolving fields of fintech and cloud computing. It's a testament to the idea that learning never stops, no matter where life takes you.
Chapter 4: Building a Business Rooted in Purpose
With newfound knowledge and a refreshed perspective, my husband and I decided to channel our expertise into a business that goes beyond the bottom line. We recognized the potential for technology to make a positive impact on society, especially in the public sector. This chapter explores our vision of leveraging our unique background to create a company that not only thrives financially but also contributes to social good.
Chapter 5: Navigating the Digital Economy with a Social Conscience
Our business is not just about technology; it's about making a difference. In this chapter, we outline our mission to assist nonprofits and government entities at all levels in adapting to the digital economy. We aim to be catalysts for positive change, using our skills to advance the social impact of organizations committed to making the world a better place.
Conclusion: A New Chapter Unfolding
As I reflect on my journey from finance to tech, from burnout to purpose-driven entrepreneurship, I'm reminded that life is a series of chapters, each offering new opportunities for growth and reinvention. In sharing my story, I hope to inspire others to embrace change, prioritize well-being, and use their skills to contribute to a more socially conscious and technologically advanced world. Our journey is ongoing, and with each chapter, we are committed to leaving a positive mark on the world.
