This week’s guest is a current colleague of mine, Zoe Edwards. Zoe’s story is a little different to other guests in that she’s only had one big career shift. However within her roles she was able to create and take new directions, and today she is doing a job she wanted to do back at school but didn’t think she ever could.
Like Fi McLay in episode 4, she wanted to do the role she is now doing when she was younger and is better for it now having taken a longer route to get.
She has enjoyed all her learning, “treated it like a hobby” which has really helped her make the most out of it.
Zoe has had some mental health challenges along the way, and whilst we won’t dwell on those today, she is an example of someone who despite that has managed to take up new opportunities and develop professionally.
