Real estate career ranks tops in survey; affirmed by local professional
Ever since she was a young girl, Ronaele Pound has known that, one day, she wanted to adopt a child.
"When my husband and I got married, I told him this was on my bucket list, to adopt," said Pound.
"Financially, though, it wasn't in the works for us when we were in our 20s."
Now in her late 30s, Pound is one step closer, having spent the last year with husband Darin tirelessly filling out paperwork, paying bills and meeting with social workers in the hope of adopting a child from Haiti.
She credits her career choice to providing the flexibility and financial stability she needs to, at long last, pursue her dream. Pound is a real estate professional with The Real Estate Company Ltd. in Calgary, as well as mom to Carson, 14, Grace, 12, and Graham, 9.
