This capstone is my personal story exploring my time in the Organizational Dynamics program and Organizational Consulting and Executive Coaching (OCEC) cohort at the University of Pennsylvania. It reflects on my experiences and lessons gained throughout that time and their influences on me, personally and professionally. Through reflection and critical analysis, the influences of my educational experience in the program and in my personal and professional aspects of my life came together to change the course of my life, which are woven together to show their interrelated nature. This capstone focuses on the concepts and theories of adult learning, change, choice awareness, use of self, and personal narrative. It is a deeply personal reflection, which I share in an effort to help others on their own personal journeys navigating the twists and turns that life throws.
