I got a new job! Interviewed last week, and was thoroughly impressed with not only the facility and services, but with the staff, who were just amazing -- kind, dedicated, compassionate. The warmth and determination I felt was so inspiring. These folks do good work, and they are growing quickly so my position will require flexibility, as well as give me room to grow. The salary and benefits are just right, and it's within bicycling distance of my apartment.

So, as you can imagine, I am more than thrilled. Goodbye government research job full of bureaucracy and politics, hello fusing my passions for health and nonprofit social justice while working in my community. Wheeeeeee!
