The sudden end of my last job was a huge fiasco, (some of you know the whole story) so I had to start from scratch after I got back from the cruise. I have been doing well freelancing as a Stage Manager, working for BYU, High School Musical 3, Stadium of Fire, and such, but I really wanted a job that had normal working hours, and would still allow me to do theatre projects on the side.
Well, I am now a Medical Assistant at Nexus Pain Care. This might come as a shock to some of you. I mean, I majored in Theatre Studies and now I'm an MA at a pain management clinic?? Yes. And I love it so far! The environment is different than anything I've done so far, and I get to learn so many new things. I see patients to their rooms, maintain their charts, explain various procedures and medications to them, etc. I am learning a lot; I usually have a list of new words that I bring home every night to study. The people I work with are great. They are so easy to get along with and are so hard-working and committed. It is also so satisfying to make a difference in our patient's lives. I find the work interesting, challenging, and thoroughly rewarding. And...I get to wear scrubs!
I am still designing the set for a couple of shows at BYU this year, but this job is giving me a an additional feeling of security and busyness that I haven't had in a while.
So, if any of you have any questions about opiate medications, I may be your gal now.
