Sometimes crazy good things happen that you totally don’t see coming. Sometimes you’re given the opportunity to help change the world. Sometimes just happened to me and I’m beyond excited.
I have accepted a position at WorldOne, a company that provides information and data based on their network of 1.8 million healthcare professionals globally.
My job will be to actively engage with the community on Sermo, the largest online community of exclusively physicians. There are more than 200,000 doctors actively engaged in this community — 1 in 3 of all physicians in the U.S. — so this is a very influential group. Sermo was started by a doctor for doctors. Its goal is to provide a forum for doctors to express their opinions, support each other, and find ways to provide better care for their patients.
Kinda awesome, no?
I will be coming in as a Content Manager/Social Media Manager and I start on Monday. To say that I’m thrilled is an understatement. I have written for years about the medical community and how I think doctors have had an ever tougher environment for treating patients. This is an opportunity for me to share their voices with the world and help represent their point of view.
It truly is a chance to make the world a better place. AND they’ve got a great health insurance plan!
As for this here blog? Don’t worry, it’s not shuttering. I’ll continue to write weekly (I’m hoping for twice a week), and I’ll still be focusing on promoting my fitness DVDs. I’m definitely not going anywhere! I will still be teaching at my studio, but focused more on specialty classes, and I’ll be developing videos to share with all of you on my YouTube Channel.
I’ll also continue to be active at TrueFoodMovement.com, although our team of writers will be picking up the reins a bit more over there. We love our food blog and what it stands for … if you haven’t already, please check it out.
Teaching Pilates has been the biggest part of my life (besides my family) for the past 16 years. I have a handful of clients that have been with me for over a decade. Saying goodbye to them has been very hard, but I know I have lifetime friends who are so happy to see me realize a long-standing dream. Because I couldn’t have written a job description more perfect than the position I’m taking.
My fingers are crossed that Monday will be the start of a very good change for me. I’ve been clothes shopping like a mad woman, swapping yoga pants for pencil skirts, and realizing that I didn’t even own a pair of basic black pumps. (How did I do that?!)
Looking forward to connecting with you here, and on Twitter, Facebook, and all around the internet.
