So much has happened since the last time I blogged....2011 was such a busy and transitional year. Amidst completing my practicum while obtaining my Masters degree in Public Health, I was laid off from my job. On the positive side this allowed me to focus on my last class and my practicum, while I networked hoping to get a position as a Health Educator. Well, I graduated May 2011, but it wasn't until November 2011 before I was hired as a part time (5-10 hours a week). In the meantime, my past supervisor hired me back and I was able to work both jobs. A month later I met a wonderful man, whom I am now married to.
2012 turned out to be even better. February my part time position turned into full time and I was on my way to my new career as a health educator. Then in June the love of my life and I were married.
My new life began and I moved to a new town. Although I enjoyed my job, had great co-workers and a wonderful job, the long distant driving was wearing on me. Fast forward to July 2014, I was offered a position just 5 minutes from home and I am now working in the community wear I live. It also allows me to help with the local women's and teen conferences.
I believe everything happens for a reason. Prior to going back for my Masters degree, I was planning on moving from the area and getting discouraged. If I would have moved, I never would have met my wonderful husband. If I had not got laid off I would have never applied for the new jobs. If I did not take the part time position, I never would have obtained my experiences as a health educator, that lead to a position closer to home.
Now I feel that I am getting settled into my new life and career, I want to get back to blogging.....
