You may have heard that we moved for my husband’s GI fellowship!

We said our bittersweet goodbye to Cleveland where we have met lifelong friends.

It’s been  I N S A N E  around here. I’m still working as a full-time recruiter and my husband is a brand new GI fellow. And we’re surrounded by boxes. (I finally found the box with the tools in them!)

I feel like a wagon with the wheels about to pop off 😂

Despite all that needs to get done, we’re helping our three small kids explore their new city and enjoy the rest of the summer.

I know that something in my life needs to give.

And it’s this blog…

I started in September 2017 and it has been a great adventure ever since.

I’m a woman on a mission:

Helping other women (like you!) go through the medical journey easier, wealthier, happier.

I keep going writing because you tell me I’ve been helpful to you. Thank you for being my audience. Please share my Facebook Page to your friends!

For the next few weeks, I’m taking some break time from blogging about my usual topics to get to know each other better! ❤️

10 Random Facts About Me

  1. I blog 95% of the time on my phone as I’m putting the kids to sleep. Once their eyes are closed, I whip out my phone, the world is quiet, and I get to work.
  2. We had a macaron bar at our wedding at a time when most people (at least where we lived) had never tried one before. It was a hit. And our guests still remember it today.
  3. I don’t care for fresh flowers because I have a hard time parting with them when I have to throw them away. But I do love live flowers like orchids.
  4. My favorite shows are Sherlock Holmes (with Benedict Cumberbatch) and Downton Abbey.
  5. I love to play games with my kids. My favorites are puzzles, hide and seek, and activity books.
  6. I like geneology and having a connection to my family’s past. I studied French as a minor because I wanted to speak it like my grandparents did.
  7. I did classical piano and Tae Kwon Do until the end of high school. It gave me a boost of confidence as a young woman.
  8. My dream is to do medical missions alongside my husband in places like Vietnam.
  9. My husband, who was inspired to become a GI doc because of his love for food, taught me how to make some of my best dishes. Verdict is out there if student has surpassed teacher! 😉
  10. I grew up an only child until I was 11 when my sibling was born. I never want to feel as alone as I did as a kid again. I love large families and get-togethers.
