After earning a useless college degree in History back in 1999 from the University of New Hampshire, I spent a few aimless years bouncing from job to job and feeling a bit overwhelmed with the idea that this could be "it". Could life really be cubicles and neckties? So, on a whim, I decided to try a path less traveled and joined the Air Force in search of action and adventure! I was selected to be an aviator and imagined spending my enlistment flying to exotic places and seeing this world first hand. Well, as fate would have it, I finished up officer training a couple weeks before 9/11. My plans were foiled and I would eventually spend my career in exotic places where the exotic people wanted me dead and they tried hard at fulfilling that goal. Fast forward through 3 tours in Iraq and a career ending combat injury, I found myself having to make a decision once again on where my life should go. I decided to pursue a career as a Physician Assistant. Why? I didn't want to go to med school at 30 years old and I don't have the hand-holding soft and loving demeanor of a nurse. Being a PA turned out to be a nice fit. In my career, I've delivered babies and watched people take their last breaths. All in all, my experiences over the past 15 years have given me a wonderful perspective on how special this life of hurling through space on a rock truly is. Unfortunately, we spend far too much time on our couches, self absorbed on social media and looking at devices instead of experiencing the amazing world around us. I wanted to find a way to pass down some of my experiences and the experiences of people I've grown to know to my children and grandchildren so I decided to start the "Wait, What If... Podcast." Through the WWI Podcast, I invite guests who share their life experiences, explore possibilities and inspire us to get out of our comfort zones and truly live. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the show!
