Nicole McMackin is the president of Irvine Technology Corp. ITC specializes in Information Technology staffing. If anyone knows about the challenges faced by women in the the various technical career fields, it's Nicole, and we spent some time during the show discussing that. But first we delved into her background, her desire to become a litigator, her graduation from the University of California, Irvine, and planning for a career as an attorney. What was crucial in her life was the influence of her parents, and later, a major life decision: deciding to marry her high school and college sweetheart or go to law school. Nicole tells a great story about her personal determination to succeed and how she now helps other young women do the same.
