Wait—what happened to chapter 19? Well, here it is—I am not afraid to embrace change. Do you like a change of pace like I do and know the benefit outweighs the risk?
Twenty years ago I became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. No, I was not appointed with a wand. I did the work: 4 years of college classes, 1200 hours of internship---yep—and a grueling national test, which back in the day I had to drive to the University of Florida—no online test for us then. After working in hospitals for 5 years I went on to grab that Master of Public Health degree. I drove to Tampa after working a 40-hour week-just when a few online classes were starting. I still did the commute and cried MANY nights after working and going to classes. The work, the degree, the drive—I did it. #Proud #Passion. This is my 20th year as a RDN!
This month I am leaving one of my passions to embrace another. I resigned from Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (13 years) to pursue another passion: continue my private practice and chef duties for medically-challenged clients along with meeting with clients to prevent that in-patient diagnosis. I have worked both sectors part-time, which still has been a very full-time life! The time has come to be SarahRD.tv full-time. I am so energized!
We all have passions: degrees, work, marriage, kids, pets, travel, etc. Most days I see a mix of it all—whatever the passion or vision is. Just know this:
Cheers to you this new year---I would love to stay connected with you on FB live, Twitter, Instagram or in person—because that is what our journey is all about. Let’s share a meal, toast or catch up. Live love.
