For 7 years I worked as the youth director at a community theatre in the States, during which my husband pursued his Ph.D in Literature.  Somewhere along the way I thought it would be a great idea to get a nursing, no wait, pharmacy, no wait, chemistry degree, which required me to start all over again in a bachelor’s program.

Nonetheless, 4 years and 2 dogs later, I got my second bachelor’s in chemistry, my husband completed his Ph.D, accepted a job in Lima, Peru and have found ourselves as ex-pats in South America.
