Four years after I resigned my position with a state agency in order to serve sentence for what happened a decade ago, I am employed again. It’s been a long road, scary as all get out at times. Would anyone ever wish to hire me, given the record?

The question boiled into a yes yesterday when a job offer from a social service agency was extended and accepted. I am beyond thrilled and ready to sink my teeth into work.

The folks who believed in me, so much do I owe in gratitude. Just as I did in state employ, this will be an all out effort on my part.
