    Writer and blogger in travel, teaching, and health

    United States

    After a long and successful career in healthcare, I decided to change directions a few years ago and it was the best decision that I have ever made. I went back to university and rekindled my passions for languages and writing, and then I went abroad to see where it would take me. At this point, I'm looking for ways to combine the creative skills that I now have on the right side of my brain with the focused work ethic of a doctor that still lingers from my past profession. In any case, I love being both a teacher and a student--there's much to learn on both sides of the relationship. Beyond the specific skills mentioned in my profile, I also have experience as a small business owner, which has taught me the nuances of working productively with others to get the most out of a team. And how to get the job done despite unforeseen obstacles.
