I’m 41 and live in Pennsylvania in the United States, having moved here in 2009 to be with my American husband, Bill. We were joined in 2010 by our daughter, EJ, who is as lively and as mischievous as most toddlers!
I have an MA (Oxon) in Literae Humaniores (1994) and a BSc in Adult Nursing (2009). I fully anticipated switching to a nursing career from the eclectic mix of jobs that I’d held since my first graduation, never quite settling to the niche that I knew was there but wasn’t quite able to identify. As it turns out, life circumstances have prevented me from commencing the top-up training required by Federal law for those nurses who hold foreign qualifications, but due to the support of my husband I am now able instead to indulge my passions for history and needlework. Actually, that’s pretty awesome!
