1062. Finding Her Talents One Job at a Time
Audrey Eger Thompson
“When I went to college I was planning to be a psychologist. That’s what my sister was, and my mother was a budding psychologist. I just figured that’s what I was going to do, too, and I got my bachelor’s in psychology. I am very interested in how humans behave and I love the different methodologies. I loved everything about it … but I did not want to be a therapist. I watched my sister and my mother and their clients and decided I wanted to do something that affects more people. I had an interest in renewable energy, and my first job was working for the electric utility in Austin, Texas. I implemented a very new program–an energy conservation program–and found I’m pretty good at doing that. I also learned about a small department in the company called Organizational Development. What they did was help groups be more efficient and work better together–teamwork, that sort of thing. I told the people who worked there that this is what I want do when I grow up. They said they would love to have me, but I would need a master’s degree. And so that’s what I did: I went back to school. I worked my fulltime job, I had my two small children, and I went to school at night–for four years. It was very part-time but I got my masters in Leadership Development. And then, I got recruited by Del Computer.”
