Forging a Distinctive Career: One Alumna’s Story

Author: Rosalyn Wells

Choosing to embark on an alternative career path can be daunting, but the choice to pursue an unique path is often rewarding in unexpected ways.  Such is the case with Sara Bega ‘14, who decided to take a position as Town Architect in Las Catalinas, Costa Rica after completing her Bachelor of Architecture.  Initially Bega struggled with the idea of accepting the position because it meant that she would postpone some career milestones she had imagined for herself such as working for a major firm and completing licensure.  Now almost five years into her position in Las Catalinas, Bega is grateful she made the choice to forego convention and try something different.
