Ep26: Jacquelyn Adams reCHARGED

We kick off our conversation with guest Jacquelyn Adams by talking about solving problems. It is so simple: take a break from the problem, take a walk and clear your head! You will be amazed at the ideas that come to you. And that is just the beginning with Jacquelyn. Listen to her story about leaving Hicksville, OH (not a typo) and her computer programming job to join the Peace Corps. Why the change? She wasn’t happy with her job and wanted to change her life. She gave up the “good” job and moved to Africa. Her time at the Peace Corps challenged her beliefs and her assumptions.  She learned about the importance of the human side (she was educated as an engineer, human stuff wasn't taught as much!). Her advice in three words: curiosity, authenticity and community.  And you won’t want to miss her favorite Swahili word!Jacquelyn  began her training career teaching high school math in Swahili in a rural Tanzanian village for two years as a Peace Corps volunteer. Upon returning to the US, she combined her love of teaching with her Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering to become a corporate engineering trainer. After spending a decade as a top-rated instructor, she founded her own learning consulting company. For her professional achievements, Jacquelyn has received local and national recognition including the “Top 40 Under 40”, “Outstanding Young Alumni”, and “Outstanding Women in Business” awards. Jacquelyn writes a weekly column for IEEE, the world's largest technical organization, sharing career development thought leadership.Connect with Jacquelyn to learn more about her and her background:LinkedIn = .
