Physician Assistant/Assistant Professor Divorced 2
I'm really enjoying reading my classmates stories. I prefer to start mine after HS because it's much more interesting, in my most humble opinion ;-)
​I, like so may of us, turned on, tuned in and dropped out. Spent the Summer of Love in San Francisco. Came back and decided to see what the rest of the world was like, so Steve Gillard and I bought tickets to Amsterdam and took off. After a month there I decided I wanted to go east and he wanted to go south, so we split up. I ended up hitchhiking across the "belly of Asia" (Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan) to India. Spent a couple months hitch hiking and walking around the northern part. I ended up in the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (you know, the guy the Beatles spent time with? I missed them [and him] by a couple months). I learned TM and that really transformed me.
​Came back to Denver and went to CSU for a couple of years. Learned enough to become a general contractor, moved to LA for a year and then West Palm Beach, Fl. Ended up getting married, having a couple of boys and flipping a whole bunch of houses. Things change, as they have a tendancy to do, and I ended up divorced. I realized I had the opportunity to re start my life so I decided to study medicine and became a Physician Assistant. Practiced for about 5 years then got recruited to join the faculty of Nova Southeastern U's PA program. Had a great time there, got to travel to Central and South America on medical missions. Even went to Tanzania once, Got myself elected president of the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants and got to do a lot of work with the legislture on healthcare reform. There's an old saying in politics, "legislation is like sausage. You really don't want to see how it's made.
Left NSU after 5 years because I got a job offer I couldn't refuse. Twice the pay and only 2 miles from my house (as opposed to 2 hours of commuting each way). Loved that job! Great people to work with. Underserved patient population which is where my heart is. Things were going so well! Then I got the diagnosis of rectal CA and spent a year doing chemo, radiation and surgery. I don't recommend it, but I sruvived. That was 2009. Everything was going well again and then a good friend of mine asked me to go to the US Virgin Islands to see about joining the faculty of the new PA Program that Barry University started there. I absolutely fell in love the the VI, specifically the island of St. Croix. And that's where the story is being written now. I've been here 4 years, working on 5. I'm SCUBA diving a lot, mostly hunting lionfish, just got TEC training and did my first deep dive (191'). I have alittle boat to get out to the deeper reefs on the west end of the island. Ride my bicycle on North Shore Rd - a beautiful ride along the coast up and down little hills.
​I keep threatening to retire but I'm in a profession where there is a tremendous demand and I feel guilty not taking care of the people here who need care. I also feel obligated to help train the next crew. Beside that, I absolutely LOVE what I'm doing! We have 24 students and they are a great bunch of kids.
So, maybe next year.............
