Looking back, if you had it to do over, would you stick with your chosen career field/job, or would you change it. If so, what would you have wanted to do instead?

Have you made a career change already or do you plan to?

I tried on many hats on my way through the medical field. Actually, medicine was not my first choice of careers! Back in that time, women were just starting to tap on the glass to many jobs not seen as female friendly. I wanted to write, be a reporter, AND also be in the spiritual guidance field. I guess I finally fell head first into that career when I came here.

Ì liked being a greenkeeper for many years and then a gardener. Money has never been a drive, as long as I have a roof over my head and food to eat. If I lived in years past I would have loved to be a rat catcher in England with a team of terriers. I do a similar job now helping farmers with vermin control, so I'm sort of living the dream, lol.

I have always wanted to heal people, which is what steered me into the healthcare field. But it was all wrong for me; high stress, for one thing. My empath abilities made my job a living hell since I wasn't aware that I had this gift. I wish I had just gone for my PHD in English literature.

I have also worked in medical as LPN, and now Pharmacy. I feel like I’m where I’m suppose to be. I love helping people. I love helping out our Veterans for dinners and events, these men and woman deserve our dedication and respect. God Bless them all.

ive had "jobs" that were just jobs. they didnt define who i was or my personality. it was a path to i guess be where i am at at this point in time. i wouldnt change that path i dont think. it has led to some interesting places and times and life experience's. met many cool ppl, and changed how i saw the world....I learned somewhere through it all to just follow the wind and let fate be the guide.... hard to explain
