I’m an ER doctor. I always wanted to be a doctor, except for a very brief time when I was 5 and wanted to be a vet. It’s all I’m trained to do, and I mostly love it (other than in Pandemic times). @sthlm_21 my degree is in biochemistry and molecular biology...obviously I don’t actually use it, but I enjoyed bench work in undergrad. @marbellie I’m curious as to why you might move to Canada (if it’s not prying). My husband works remotely for a Canadian company and we routinely toy with moving there, but I don’t know if I want to go through licensing stuff and learning how to work in a completely different system.
@doodleoodle in my imagination I toyed with the idea of becoming a school teacher just to not let my babies go lol. How long did the preschool teaching last for you?
@usedtobeknottie what’s a PSW?
I am current the director of 2 SAMHSA grants at a community mental health agency working with transition age youth ages 18-25 and individuals coming out of crisis centers or hospitals after being hospitalized for substance use or suicidality. By degree I am a Registered Nurse and have done hospital work but prefer community mental health - it is kind of what I trained for but has expanded my role into management. Every day is an adventure and I love it!
I'm a financial controller. Always liked accounting, weird I know. It'll be interesting to see how work and motherhood gets balanced. Just got a new job in December so a bit worried to tell my company I'll be out at the end of the year!
