Live from New York it's Dominick Marra
Hello to all my Nov/Dec 2020 PMWC classmates! As I wrote, my name is Dominick and I am coming to you all from the great state of New York in the United States. Although I currently have no conservation experience to speak of, I have had previous PM experience in my career in computers.
As the world was turned upside down this year with COVID-19 I found myself out of my most recent job and the time home gave me a chance to rethink my life a bit. At first my focus was to move to another part of the country and even closer to the ocean than I am now and while looking for work in that area I started thinking about a complete revamp of my life and to take the opportunity to do something with purpose. I have always been in love with nature and have always wanted to do more to care for it and I finally decided this was going to be the time to make that change and rechart my course into wildlife conservation.
This course I hope will be a great bridge to connect my previous work experience and life with my new future life where I can take the lessons learned here and pursue a career of serving this great planet of ours now in helping to heal it from all it's extraordinary ailments. I look forward to seeing and speaking with each and everyone one of you in the coming weeks and perhaps long after that.
