Hi my name is Katrina I grew up in a small town in Newfoundland, Canada and had a great up bringing. After high school graduation I moved to the "big city" to go to college to further my education. I graduated with a diploma in Office Administration Medical.

Right after graduation I started my very first job in my field. It gave me great experience and I learn so many things, but unfortunately the money wasn't the best and other problems I ended up leaving my first job and moved back home for a few months until I could get back on my feet. Which I did do.

My next adventure was moving back to the city from which I had left to get a management job at a local family practice. It was great experience as usual and I had many office duties I was responsible for which I was more than happy to apply. I worked hard everyday, I work there for many years. As time went on I was tried of living from cheque to cheque and worried about my future knowing that when the doctors retired I would be out of a job and also not paying into a pension I felt I had nothing to look forward to for my future, so I looked further my career.

Next page of my journey I got a government job with a very large company a hospital. Which was a major plus, getting to pay into benefits and a pension and making more money my future started to look like it was getting better.

I started working in the health information office of a Cancer Centre and I have to say I really loved my job there. I worked with some great people and I had a good boss/supervisor. At the centre I always had to opportunity to move or change job positions which was great in furthering my experience. I got to work out in radiation department and in the clinics, so I got to deal with a lot of patients and to see first hand how hard everyone worked there and how much everyone care for the patients what walked in and out of that centre everyday. A lot of my friends and people would say to me "It's got to be hard working there." and to be honest yes it was hard at time, I got close to some patients and it was hard to know what they were going through and seeing their upset family members, but it gave me a lot of perspective on life and not to take anything for granted. Life is very precious. I went to work everyday with a smile on my face and I would laugh and joke around with everyone there including the patients; they appreciated that they had enough on there mind so seeing a smiling face help even if only in a tiny way. To put a smile on a patient face made my day much better.

To my most recent life journey I've had past history of depression and past experiences had brought it back in 10 folds. I was going through a very rough time with my depression which getting plenty of help and having lots of love from friends and family around me I couldn't find myself and I would try so hard. Some days I couldn't even get out of bed and other days I made myself go to work and I would have a good day, but in the end I wasn't happy I would try what ever I could to be ME again, but I would always fall back in that deep black hole that I hated myself and everything around me. So after a very long time of thinking and deciding that I needed to work on myself to get back to being happy again or like I said before back to being ME, I resign at the job I use to love and pack up my little 1 bedroom apartment (I lived in on my own for 12 years) and moved back home to my little home town. It was the biggest decision I ever made and I have to say the hardest decision, but I am glad I made it I'm starting to feel like my old seft again and after only a few month of moving home I am off all my medication and haven't felt better.

This brings to way I am giving Wealth Affiliate a try. While I'm am applying for jobs again, I still have that worry in the back of my mind that I will go back to my old ways because I never truly enjoyed working in office administration field and to be honest going back to school doesn't tickle my fancy either. I've always wanted to work for myself and make good money, so I could live the life I wanted. I've learned over the past years I'm a strong person and I can do whatever I put my mind to, so here I am.

I'm going to ME again :)
