“My best advice to anyone who is looking for a direction to steer their career, or anyone who is having trouble wrapping their head around what they want to do in life, is take an opportunity, no matter how big or small, and give it a chance. Maybe it will work, maybe it won’t, but if you don’t try, you will never know. I took a chance with the opportunities presented to me, I worked really hard, I made a commitment and I couldn’t be happier with where this ride is taking me,” said Washburn.
