10 things you don’t know about me

To welcome my new readers, I thought I would do something fun today so you guys can get to know me a bit. Don’t worry there is free stuff in this email too. If you are in a hurry, just scroll on down :)

1. My true passion in life is mountain biking. For those who do know me personally, you know this tidbit I’m about to reveal since I share it as much as humanly possible. (Drumroll please….) I qualified to try out for the Olympics for mountain biking about 7 years ago!!! However, I got pregnant around that time (also pretty amazing) and that was that. Though I do love to brag about this and that might be enough.

2. Before this current crisis, I thought I got bored easily. I have had MANY jobs (most due to moving and marriage) but still! I changed jobs almost every 2-3 years in VERY DIFFERENT settings from acute care to middle school to nursing homes to inpatient rehab. However, I just realized this week that I LOVE to learn new things. That is what excites me and why I am loving teletherapy at the moment. It is another skill to learn.

3. When I was in grad school, I only wanted to work with adults in acute care. I focused only on this in grad school and worked in this setting for many years. Though I did love aphasia and dysphagia, my entire career changed when I had to work in outpatient pediatric rehab. The rest was history.

4. I love my minivan (seriously) and I think I will own a minivan long after my kids have grown. You can fit almost anything you need in there (including bikes!). Sliding doors...need I say more.

5. I strongly dislike social media. I appreciate the benefits it does provide, but I was happier before it.

6. This you may have realized - I make A LOT of grammar mistakes when typing or writing. This has been going on all my life and has driven my mother, teachers, and professors crazy. I have tried every trick in the book, but I just can’t kick it. I can teach grammar and correct others but not myself - diagnosis me, please.

7. My other true passion is jigsaw puzzles. Once I start, I can’t stop. Hours will pass by. I even dream of the puzzles until they are done.

8. I have never tried chocolate milk. I have nothing against chocolate milk. My kids even drink chocolate milk on occasion, but I won’t just because then I wouldn’t be able to say “I have never tried chocolate milk.”

9. My husband is from Colombia. We are raising our children to speak both Spanish and English. I am fascinated by this and love watching it unfold.

10. I am a VERY optimistic, happy, glass-half-full kind of person. I love helping others. I am glad you are here!
