MJ has had a fairly unorthodox career path. It has tested her before, during, and after every transition thus far, and required an unapologetic understanding of herself and belief systems throughout. Five years later, the decisions she has made have created what some may view as a “short-cut” to a big-picture and comprehensive understanding of the food industry. In her view, it’s the ability to work on her own terms.
Everyone’s roadmap from past to present will look different. This is her personal account. It includes multiple job changes, the challenges she was confronted with (pre-, during, and post-), and how she saw myself through them. My hope is that it gives you a baseline to create your own career narrative. And for those who can relate, she hopes it gives you the validation you may need to do your next big thing.
