What I Learned About Myself

When taking the different assessments, I really wasn't surprised by what I found out. Especially when I took the personality assessment, that assessment fit me to a T. I've always liked structure in my life, and I do enjoy my alone time. I feel like the things the assessments told me I already knew about myself. I know that I enjoy helping others, and family has always been very important to me. These assessments really affirmed what I already knew, but it was helpful to see that I what I thought I knew about myself was actually true.

My mission is to help others while still maintaining a good work-life balance.
