she couldn't get in the police force for some reason. she applied for a job answering emergency calls and got it, it was shift work and quite well paid, she was then promoted over and over and now is in charge of the whole call centre. at one stage she was a female counsellor going to see ladies who had been raped etc. she loves her job and it was relatively easy to get into and once you are in at any level you can progress from there. Hope you find something you love.
