I didn't get a chance to answer yesterday - I went to a high school  
and spoke about my favorite topic - histotechnology!
Anyway, I started out in microbiology and then worked in a doctor's  
office lab doing routine chemistry and hematology and when we moved to  
a small town in Iowa the only position in the lab that became  
available was in histology. I was playing bridge with the histotech  
and he mentioned the opening so I went in and interviewed, got the job  
and never have looked back. So I sort of fell into this profession as  
did many others.
