  • Description: About me:
    I was born on 12-11 at the time of 12:11, which to me was very odd. I am not one to follow any superstitions or doctrines based on numerology but the way my life has went I now wonder if that birth-date and time, which coincide so perfectly, might in all actuality have a purpose. I am a nurse, teacher, translator, author, entrepreneur, research scholar, and influential mentor and now DISABLED. I lived in Shiraz,Iran from 1998 - 2001. I taught English in Shiraz. I also operated an Immigration Consulting Business in Iran. I value Iran, Iranians and Iranian Culture. My stay in Iran turned out to be a catastrophe, which can be read in my book. I obtained my BSN (Bachelors of Science in Nursing) from Northern Michigan University in 1995, and obtained my MSN (Masters of Science in Nursing) from Shiraz Medical University in Shiraz, Iran in 2000. I have learned a lot in life and one thing is, to never say never about anything because life is a paradox. I have also learned that you can learn from anyone, even if you learn how NOT to be like someone you still have learned. My previous occupations have been and they are diverse but all true, and allow me to elucidate one thing here and now .... These occupations are in no way related to me being Impressionable :) Army: (I married my recruiter after watching the movie Private Benjamin...and they say I'm impressionable...no I'm NOT! Truck Driver: To stay mobile after going AWOL from the Army; after finding out my sister was "dating" my husband back home. Nurse: (Received my BSN in the USA and my MSN in Shiraz, Iran): Had to do this cuz I was dating a doctor...see still not IMPRESSIONABLE :) Corrections Officer: Dating a very high official at the prison...go figure :) Exotic Dancer: An escape from reality and highly drugged on illicit drugs. English Teacher: Taught English in Shiraz, Iran: This by far was my most rewarding occupation. Influential Mentor: This is a tricky one to define: this is based on the premise of: Teaching and conveying to anyone including yourself that with the right amounts of self-belief you or anyone can become anything or anyone; thus you create your own reality. Including the right to be confident in life.
    Therefore don't believe in anything unless you want to and if you want to then nothing is impossible.... Therefore you create your own reality.....So...never dismiss anything...life is exactly WHAT YOU MAKE IT... this I THOROUGHLY BELIEVE! :)"
