I've been an astronaut, writer, professional boxer, and a dentist. I went to law school, but before I started practice I was chosen to represent the US in the Olympics for my badminton skills. In season, I guide adventurers to the top of Mt Everest, and off season I practice medicine in the Amazon basin. I occasionally model underwear for extra cash, and fill in on the Indy Racing circuit when a team wants to ensure victory for a certain race. I took a year off from work to live with some monks in Tibet, so I really don't consider that as part of my career. I don't like to brag or anything, but a certain beer company has been making some pretty sweet overtures, claiming their current spokesman is getting up there in years and they're looking for a replacement. My unpaid hobbies include flying jets, skydiving, and Marlin fishing (bare handed). I also like to golf, and I'm pretty good at checkers.

Lets see...I used to be a nurse assistant then quit my job to start my own business. My business was an oxygen bar (portable). Yes I sold air to people and they bought it. From the age of 18 to 22 I worked in almost every nightclub in pontiac and detroit. Then I got pregnant (by my husband in case u were wondering). Then I went to school to get my cosmetology license and I figured I would get my instructor license while I was there. I worked at a Paul Mitchell school for a while. Decided to stay home with my last baby and I am currently waiting for an opening at my dream job. (Arent we all?) It has been fun getting where I am today :-)

1984-2006 I worked for a mid-sized (200 sworn) Police Department on the central east coast of FL retiring at the rank of Lieutenant. 2006-2010 I was a manufacturers rep for a body armor manufacturer (hence the moniker). From 2011 to present I am a Sergeant with a Sea Port Police Department. Since 2007 I have also operated my own training and sales company.

I work in merchandising. I drive around to area retail/grocery stores (Walmart, Food Lion, Weis, K-Mart, Martin's, etc.) and do work for Proctor & Gamble. I could be doing anything from shelving resets and stocking shelves to inventory, removing expired products from shelves, adding new products to shelves, putting up displays, and sales reporting.

Depending on the duties needed, it can suck, but I make my own hours, so who can argue with that?
