A return…of sorts….

It’s been some time since I last posted. 2017-2018 was some kind of roller coaster ride. There were alot of ups and downs and I decided to take a hiatus  after the death of my sister-in-law. If you want to know more, ask me about it. All I will say here, now, is that she was (and IS) a beautiful woman who taught me to be true to myself and whose legacy I strive to carry forward daily.

I see that some of you still check this frequently, so I thank you for that. It’s been a little more than a year and I am ready to return…..

SO MUCH has happened.  I had personal experiences (yes, that is written in the plural on purpose) with loss and grief much sooner than I ever hoped. I learned that navigating these experiences with a partner is a journey. I also learned that committing to this journey is the best decision I have ever made and I remain eternally grateful and in awe of the compassionate and kind man I am lucky to call my best friend and life partner.

I also successfully proposed my dissertation, applied to residency, matched at hospital training site where I could pursue a potential clinical calling, practiced a whole lot of yoga, moved away from Charlotte to a cute little town in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, learned I love small town life, read a ton, rediscovered painting, found my calling to be true…and so on… and so on.

I am living in Hickory, NC and adore small-town life. I am working in Asheville, NC and in it have found my career calling and soul-city.

I want to stay here forever but have a feeling my adventures are not finished yet. I am applying for postdoctoral fellowships and jobs and have no idea where I will end up.

I am so excited to start this blog back up and I am so thankful you are here to join me on this ride…..

With gratitude,
