    My husband is working towards being an IT guy. Right now he has a starter job in the field and hopefully will have something better soon. I’m not the best at fixing problems, but I feel like I’ve learned a decent amount just asking him how to do things. :)

    It’s amazing how much sexism there still is in the workplace. Women with equal or higher education and skills are still treated as if they are worthy of less respect. I love that you are so knowledgeable about tech and IT…you have a gift with helping others that I rarely see in men in the tech world. More women need to follow your course.

    I am currently getting my Master’s degree in Instructional Design. Though not a male dominated field, it is a technological one. I love teaching (you can thank my mother,the teacher, for that), and the idea that I could create lesson plans that incorporate technology was too good to pass up! I think I have finally found my niche in life (at 37 years old). Women in technology make things happen!

    Sarah, I had no idea there was that much sexism in your field! I work in a field that is predominately female, volunteer management, which means that it is also one of the most underpaid fields. Our world still has a long way to go but I completely agree, a college degree is always the first step in proving yourself. Great post!

    I work in the pressure washing industry. I know all too well the “look”. I have actually had someone ask me a ton of questions that I was able to answer, then ask a man in the store the same questions only to get the same answers that I provided!

    All I have to say is Shine on Girlfriends! Shine On!!!

    Thank you Sarah for making a difference! I’m an educator by degree and have just recently begun my quest to learn more about technology and photography. I’ll be 64 in just over a week and it is never to late for women to advance their education! We need more Sarahs… not more of “the look”!

    My family optometrist inspired me to follow in his foot steps to become an Optometrist myself. It is an awesome profession for women and I am so happy to have these influences in my life!
