Default OT - For Fun -- What do you do for a living?

Hey all!

Just wondering what we all do for a living.

I work for the Federal government and manage a Northrop Grumman and IBM contract.

What about you?

I'm a Labor and Delivery nurse, and I love my job! I also have 2 children, 19 yo daughter and 15 yo son... And a husband! All have been super supportive of me, and I now have my daughter on a phase one boot camp, which makes it easier for me!

that's so cool! I have my MPA and want to work in local or state gov't but finding a job there is tough!

I'm a research coordinator- the study I'm working on involves cancer patient treatment decisions. I like it but I'm still figuring out what I want to do when I "grow up."

Cool topic! i love to hear about what people do for a living.

I'm a kitchen and bathroom designer, but also design any room that involves cabinetry, like living rooms (built in bookcases, entertainment centers), home offices, etc. I used to be a nurse and still have my license, but after my kids were off to school, I wanted to try something fun so I went back to school!
