Life Back at Work

Well it has happened. In December, I received an offer to work as the Executive Director for the Stroke Recovery Association of BC. I am now part way through my first week earning a pay cheque again.

I have always thought that I needed to do something to encourage others in their stroke recovery. Well I believe that this job is where I am meant to be at the moment. This job is the closest thing I can be doing to encourage and still being getting paid. There is a lot to do but I think I have a good background for moving the Association forward and enhancing the opportunities for stroke survivors.

Today was also pretty exciting because my Olympic torch bearer's uniform arrived today in the mail. I think this is going to be an incredible opportunity to raise awareness about stroke survivors in the local and international arenas.
