I am an RN and worked in Labor & Delivery for 15 yrs. Got tired of the weekends, holidays & moved to an office setting with an obstetrician / gynecologist.Weekends & holidays off now - can't beat that!!!
My husband owns an automotive repair business.
Wow, what a great thread!! :grin
I am currently a Senior Regulatory Affairs Administrator at a company that manufactures and sells dental implants. I work with the state government, FDA and international regulations to make sure my company stays in business. I also do internal/external audits and make sure we have good controls in place.
However, this is NOT my career. I am currently going to school to become a sign language interpreter (2 year program..... ALMOST DONE!). After that, I'm going to continue school to get at least a BA in some sort of psychology field (possibly child development or family counseling), and minor in lingustics so I can work with families who have a deaf child in their family.
I am blessed to be a stay at home Mom to my 2yr old daughter. I look forward to returning to public relations one day, but would not trade with anyone for now.
My husband is a special agent with the Office of Special Investigations for the USAF. His job means we get to live in a new part of the world every 2-3 years.
Gee... I did not know we were supposed to tell the truth :grin
