I am so excited for this new chapter in my life. I am only two weeks away from finishing my last class for school. I received my student teaching placement on Friday. I will be student teaching at Huntersville Elementary School. I will be learning from and working with Jocelyn May in her third grade class! I can't wait!
It will be a huge change in my life. I have worked with Eastover University OB/GYN for 12 years this past November. I started the November after I graduated. Everyone from the doctors to the staff to the patients have become my family away from family. I have learned so much from everyone. It makes me sad to not be there all day long. I say all day long because I will be working for them as PRN (part time without the benefits). I will be doing student teaching during the day and then at least four hours in the evenings. One of the hardest things is passing my responsibilities to the guy I am training. The Prosperity office has become my "baby". I was asked in 2006 if I would take the position as the patient account rep and help organize the office. When the office opened in September of 2006 it was just three of us, Dr. Brandon, Pasiley, and myself. In six years our office has grown! We now have two fabulous physicians, Dr. Rollins and Dr. Kalleberg, five nurses, Deborah, Sandy, Barbara, Kim, and Talaya, four clerical, Joy, Scott, Roseann, and myself, one ultrasound tech, Susan, and an office manager, Lori! It has been so fun to see how the office has grown that it saddens me to be leaving it.
Even be sad about leaving my beloved Eastover I am so excited to finally be finishing with school. I have been going straight since April 2010 with only one week off at Christmas. It has been hard juggling working full time, two years of being a Relief Society President, and doing school full time. I have been blessed immensely.
Another part of this chapter will be me moving to Utah. I am not sure why I am supposed to go to Utah, but I just feel that is the right place. Most of those who know me know that I am a southern girl. I love myself winters that last two months and move right into spring. I love being able to be at the beach in three hours or the mountains in one. I love when our snow falls it is gone by noon. Again...I don't know why I am supposed to be in Utah...I'd prefer the beach. Some of the perks will be rooming with Amelia and then being with friends from Nauvoo. I am very excited for more opportunities to work with church productions.
