A Ramblin’ Rose Hat

in All Posts

One of my favorite things to talk to people about is their jobs – past, present, and potential future positions. You can learn so much about a person when you talk jobs!  My first job was a supermarket cashier.  I was actually hired as a bagger, but got promoted to cashier on my first day – as a 16 year old, I was so proud of that fact!  I actually really liked the job (but did not like the uniform). 


Also – I still shudder when I hear that damned question.


Through high school and college, I also worked as: a sales associate at a used textbook store, a medical experiment lab rat (good money for a college student!), the person who proctored professor evaluations, a sexual assault peer educator, a career services peer educator, a bartender at a karaoke bar (awesome!), an intern at a law firm, and a freelance writer (I’ve been writing professionally for over a decade… that makes me feel old).  When I graduated, I worked as an urban planner for 3. 5 years.  Then, I became a blogger and motivational speaker.  I wrote three books.  I help run a vitamin website. Oh, and I served as the clinic’s secretary and helped my Husband run his business. 


I feel like I’ve done other jobs, too, but I can’t remember them all!


So, what do my old jobs say about me?  That I like to sing karaoke!  Hah.  I guess my jobs show that I like writing, but I also love to connect with others.  That’s really want I’m about – I love to talk to strangers, hear their stories, and connect


When I wrote my Dear Reader post about stepping away from daily blog postings, one of the things that I wasn’t ready to reveal was that this shift is due, in part, to a new job.  Now I can tell you about it!  I’m so excited because this new position is something different for me – I wake up every morning SO pumped to work.  And it’s a part-time, work-from-home position, so it allows me to continue to spend most of my efforts focusing on my son.  And it’s the perfect combination of everything that I love – empowerment of women, triathlons, social media.


I’m Ramblin’ Rose’s new social media consultant.  Ramblin’ Rose is an AMAZING women’s triathlon series in the North and South Carolina area.  We put on six triathlons between May and October:


South Charlotte – May 5, 2013

Raleigh – May 19, 2013

Rock Hill – July 14, 2013

Winston-Salem – August 18, 2013

Charlotte – September 22, 2013

Chapel Hill – October 6, 2013


You guys know that I LOVE triathlons. The best thing about Ramblin’ Rose is that it’s designed as a true beginner’s triathlon.  Most of the events involve a 250 yard pool swim, a 9 mile bike, and a 2 mile run.  Our participants finish in 45 minutes to 2 hours, and we have women of all ages, sizes, and athletic abilities participate.  The atmosphere is very supportive and fun.  It really is a celebration of life!  (I did a Ramblin Rose triathlon back in 2011.)

My absolute favorite thing about Ramblin Rose is how many mothers and daughters do the event together. 

go mom

As Ramblin’ Rose’s social media consultant, I’ll be working at the events and promoting the race series across major social media channels.  Even if you don’t live in the Carolinas, please consider following us because we’ll be posting loads of inspiring stories, interesting tidbits, and handy triathlon tips!

Some of these channels are just getting off the ground, but hang tight!  We’ll be up and running soon.


The other project that I’m organizing is our new Blogger Ambassador Program.

Blogger Ambassador Program Logo

Are you a blogger in the Charlotte, Rock Hill, Raleigh, Winston-Salem, or Chapel Hill areas? I’d LOVE you to join our blogger ambassador program. We’re looking for inspiring and engaging women who want to ‘tri’ Ramblin Rose and spread the word about our incredibly empowering events. Your positive attitude matters more than your blog’s reach, so whether you’re just beginning your blog or have an established audience, please contact me at caitlinjboyle@gmail.com for more information.


I’m thrilled to be part of a team that’s focused on encouraging women of all ages and sizes to be active and healthy.  My favorite thing about Ramblin’ Rose is that it’s about having fun and accomplishing something amazing. 

You Can Do This

I also can’t wait to share more behind-the-scenes peeks at what it takes to put on an event series like Ramblin’ Rose with you all!


So – I guess you can add officially Ramblin’ Rose to my twisty list of jobs!    I’m excited for what the future holds.


What jobs have you held?  What was your favorite job?  And what is your dream future job?



  • Isabella April 15, 2013, 2:21 pm

    How exciting! I am applying for my first job this summer, I will probably end up working at a doctors office doing data entry. Of course, I have babysat, but that doesn’t provide much.

  • Tammy Root April 15, 2013, 2:23 pm

    That’s great Caitlin! Congratulations! Doing what you love is so important. 🙂

  • amanda April 15, 2013, 2:38 pm

    Congrats Caitlin!! That’s sounds like a perfect job for you!!

  • Kristen L April 15, 2013, 2:41 pm

    Congratulations! What an exciting new thing for you!!! The Ramblin’ Rose blog Ambassador program sound cool — wish I lived in the area. So glad to hear things are going well for you.

  • Tanya @ Vegan Faith April 15, 2013, 2:42 pm

    Congratulations! What a fun job…and I know the crew you get to work with! They are the best ever!

  • Elizabeth @ Positive Change April 15, 2013, 2:48 pm

    That sounds so great and sounds like the perfect job! Congratulations! I can’t wait to hear all about your success with Rambilin Roses! My first job was working in the paint department at ACE Hardware ( I loved helping people pick out colors and mixing the paint), I worked for the local school system doing a bunch of jobs during college, latchkey, maintenance department, receiving center, kindergarten registration, I then had a internship at Nestle for 1.5 years during college as well, and now working at a running store. I hope to work for a running shoe company rep in the future at least I think so!

    • Caitlin April 15, 2013, 2:53 pm

      mixing the paint sounds awesome!!!! that would be fun.

  • Jessica R @ fromthekitchentotheroad April 15, 2013, 2:49 pm

    Congrats! Sounds exciting. My first job was also in a grocery store at 16. There was an opening for a checker that my coworkers wanted me to apply for but you had to be 18 for that job in my company so I was out. I actually really liked that job. I quit after 9 months because I was really tired of people calling me Jennifer when my name is Jessica. That is my number 1 pet peeve in life.

    • Caitlin April 15, 2013, 2:53 pm

      LOL 🙂

  • jen @nutcaseinpoint April 15, 2013, 2:53 pm

    Professionally, I have worked as a sales rep and a credit analyst. Hated both. Now I have may Masters degree and moved to Canada and I am having the HARDEST time finding a job- and especially for Calgary where there are supposedly an abundance of jobs! le sigh.

  • Kelley April 15, 2013, 2:57 pm

    Congrats! Sounds the perfect job! But I gotta admit, I’m a little curious about the Human Lab Rat job!

    • Caitlin April 15, 2013, 3:00 pm

      Haha i got paid to let them do MRIs on my brain as I did math problems and whatnot. $50 a pop 🙂

  • Sarah April 15, 2013, 2:57 pm

    My first job was as a “Bird Girl”. This eccentric woman had a house full of exotic birds and she hired high school girls to clean out their cages, feed them, play with them, etc. It was totally weird, but it paid well, and I got to teach an African Grey parrot to sing like me!

  • Kim April 15, 2013, 2:57 pm

    Hmmm I have had a real mish mash of jobs… in high school I worked at a convenience store for one summer, at a provincial park for one summer, and for a cross country ski club for one summer, mapping trails and whatnot. Then I got a gig guiding sea kayaking trips which I did every summer throughout university.

    Since entering the ‘real world’ I have been bouncing from contract to contract in the environmental field.

    I would loooove to get into something health/fitness related, but that’s not what my background is in, unfortunately.

  • Ashley April 15, 2013, 3:29 pm

    Congratulations!! I’ve had quite a variety of jobs and just graduated college in December so I’m working on finding one that can stick. 🙂

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs April 15, 2013, 3:31 pm

    Sounds like the perfect fit for you — Congratulations!

  • Kelsey April 15, 2013, 3:40 pm

    Congratulations! That sounds like a perfect position for you! Plus the tri sounds so fun! I promise if you bring a race to Oregon I’ll make it my first tri! Congrats! Enjoy your new adventure 🙂

  • Emily @ The Swallow Flies April 15, 2013, 3:46 pm

    That is so exciting! I wish I lived closer because that is something I would love to “tri” since I’m super nervous about attempting any other triathlon. Maybe I can take a trip out. 🙂

    My favorite job is the one I currently have — teaching ninth-grade English! My least favorite job was reffing soccer at age 15 (and getting reamed by parents in the process). I would LOVE to write professionally someday. We’ll see…

  • Allison April 15, 2013, 4:22 pm

    This is great! Congratulations 🙂

  • Sara April 15, 2013, 4:29 pm

    My first job was at a Food Lion as a cashier. Then I worked at a local hardware store called Pleasants Hardware (it is affiliated with Ace Hardware too). Then I tutored a bit while in college (but not long since I was attending college + had two other jobs at the time). Then I became the board secretary for a local group (still do this … since 2006!) Then I interned in public relations for a membership organization during college and was asked to stay part-time through my senior year of college and then landed a full-time job after I graduated! (Still work there now!) Hope I’m not forgetting anything!

  • sara @ fitcupcaker April 15, 2013, 4:55 pm

    This is such an inspirational team. I like how its focused on “encouraging women of all ages and sizes to be active and healthy.” I think the older we get we still need to make this a priority!

  • Megan April 15, 2013, 5:00 pm

    Wow, you and Meghann are living parallel lives kind of! 🙂

    My list of jobs is pretty short (esp post college!). Worked at fast food in HS. Worked at a tennis club for a semester in college<—easy job, ran the snack bar for the kids after school while they were waiting on lessons and cleaned the locker rooms and vacummed the tennis courts, then was a waitress for several years<—good fairly easy money for a college kid!, then was a nurse tech while in nursing school, then I've been a nurse at the same hospital for the past 4 years. I started out in ICU (good experience but definitley not my dream job!) and 2.5 years ago switched the labor and delivery, which IS my dream job! I feel pretty lucky to be working my dream job at 29 years old! (I work 3x a week and consider myself a stay at home mom to my two kids, too. I work nights. My almost 3 yr old goes to a sitter 2x/month. We are lucky that my husbands job is flexible and he can stay home in the mornings if I need to sleep a bit.)

    • Lauren April 16, 2013, 12:50 pm

      I was thinking the same thing about everybody’s move to working for triathlons!

  • Megan April 15, 2013, 5:01 pm

    OH, I forgot..I interned at a Christian Camp one summer. That was a blast!

  • Jelena@FabLifePhD April 15, 2013, 5:15 pm

    Congratulations for the new job! My first one was as a gas station assistant! I am not sure of you have those in the States at all. A lot of window washing was involved. In the meanwhile I was a soup promoter in the super market, room service food server, pharmaceutical representative, pharmacist, PhD student and Genetics teacher. Hey, at least I’m improving. I hope to be a research group leader someday!

  • Sarah @ Yogi in Action April 15, 2013, 5:33 pm

    Congrats on the new job! It will be so perfect for you.

    I have also had lots of jobs- ranging from working at Dairy Queen (so much ice cream), working in retail, serving, bartending, working as a physio aid, and now an accountant. I think my big thing is I love working with people- I’m a BIG people person!

  • Ginger April 15, 2013, 5:35 pm

    Congrats, Caitlin! Perfect job for you. I love Ramblin Rose- did 2 last year, hope to do a couple this year.

  • Liz April 15, 2013, 5:53 pm

    Excited for you!! I’ve worked at Victoria’s Secret throughout college (of 10 applications they were the only retail store that called me back haha) and I must say the consistent free bras and panties over the years were definitely great perks of the job! I have a FABULOUS underwear drawer.

  • Stephanie C April 15, 2013, 6:02 pm

    My first job was when I was 16 or 17 as a Sales Associate – I sucked. I was supposed to get people to buy our product and I often gave people free information if they gave me a sob story. After that, I worked at Macy’s (probably my most hated job). After that I worked as a “Communications Associate” basically giving people information about an Evening Program for adults to obtain their degree, I left that to work at a Group Home, then left that to work at a Therapeutic Pre-School ( LOVED it, but they had so many transitions and forgot that I had even given my notice/they were supposed to be helping me sign up for health insurance). I worked there P/t, then as a secretary p/t. The Secretary position (for a chiropractor) asked me to bump up to full time and were more flexible so I took that position while I finished getting my undergrad degree. The company folded during the recession and so I decided to BACK to school and get my Masters – while doing that I’ve been a TA for a professor, volunteered at a camp and for my program I’ve worked as a psychotherapy trainee at a high school, and now I’m a psychotherapy trainee working with elementary aged students (LOVE LOVE LOVE). Whew.
    My fave is definitely where I’m at now. I recently told my husband – I hate getting up for work but LOVE it when I’m there. It’s very difficult and taxing mentally, but it’s so rewarding – and working with kids is fun 🙂
    My dream future job would be very similar to what I’m doing now – just getting paid for it. Would also eventually love to work for myself and have my own practice, though that scares the hell out of me.

  • Jacquelynn April 15, 2013, 6:10 pm


    From being a corporate flight attendant/flight attendant program manager to getting ready to be a stay-at-home mamma, life is all about new jobs! 🙂

  • emily April 15, 2013, 6:16 pm

    I have been a cashier/sales associate at an old ladies’ clothing store, a surf shop, a Cold Stone, and a toy store; a waitress and an on-campus bar in Miami and a popular bar in the Virgin Islands; and a middle school ELA teacher! And hopefully I will be working as an RD soon!

  • emily April 15, 2013, 6:17 pm

    Oh yeah, Congrats on your new job!!!

  • April April 15, 2013, 6:17 pm

    Congratulations…sounds like a perfect fit for you!!!

  • Stephanie @ Steph's Miles April 15, 2013, 7:09 pm

    Congratulations on your new role! That sounds like a great opportunity and fits your current healthy lifestyle. 🙂 I’ve never heard of the races before, but I’m inspired to try a tri similar to this one day.

  • Jane @ Not Plain So Jane April 15, 2013, 7:11 pm

    Fun new job! Dream job: a Registered Dietitian (so close!) and working with a flexible schedule somehow…

  • Janet April 15, 2013, 7:14 pm

    Congratulations! The Ramblin’ Rose series are so much fun. You will be a great addition to that team.

  • Elisabeth April 15, 2013, 7:39 pm


    I’ve only had 2 jobs (and I’m 31) – first job at 16 was at a nursing home my mom ran (she’s an RN and a nursing home administrator). I worked there for 5 years + and was an environmental aide, laundry aide and activity assistant during those years. I’ve worked at the same hospital for 9 years since graduating college as a medical laboratory scientist. I kind of like saying I’ve only had 2 jobs 🙂

  • Kathy April 15, 2013, 7:57 pm

    So beautiful! I wish I was in the area, I would love to help out, but I live in Chicago, IL. If there is anything I could do around here, please let me know! Also, I just mentioned your blog in a post today…check it out! (http://luanaolaenjoylife.blogspot.com/2013/04/you-are-beautiful.html ) and let me know what you think of the video 🙂

  • Amber K April 15, 2013, 8:10 pm

    I’ve done the whole fast food thing, been a receptionist, babysat, worked in a child care, and been a customer service rep -THE worst. It turned me completely off from ever working with the general public again.

  • Rebecca April 15, 2013, 8:20 pm

    Fun! Congrats. 🙂

    My first actual job (besides babysitting) was as a sales associate at a drug store. We had some weird customers sometimes, but the majority were pretty good. We almost never asked “paper or plastic” though. Our paper bags were larger than our plastic ones, and most of the items fit in the plastic ones. Sometimes people would just not need a bag. If it was breakable items, we’d wrap it in tissue paper or bubble wrap. And it wasn’t just cashiering–we stocked shelves and cleaned stuff and for a while at the end I made deliveries for the pharmacy. Kinda fun.
    I also had a couple of office jobs as basically a receptionist but I didn’t necessarily like them as much. One was just a couple of hours a week and super easy and required almost no human interaction, which was actually kind of nice. The other got kind of stressful and one call actually made me cry. =\
    Now I’m a Student Custodian, which has actually been pretty great, but after May I’m not sure where I’ll end up. We’ll see what happens!

  • Molly @ RDexposed April 15, 2013, 8:40 pm

    FUN!! Congrats!

  • Emily April 15, 2013, 8:45 pm

    Congratulations! That is so perfect for you. Happy to see how your career is changing and growing – and how it all seems to be right up your alley! You truly are an inspiring figure for any woman, young or old.

  • K @ Finding a skinnier me April 15, 2013, 9:44 pm

    That sounds amazing! I hope one day to be physical fit enough to do a trialathon.

    My first job was at a fast food restaurant where I was promoted to a manager. I did hotel front desk, data entry, sold plus size clothes and was a receptionist at a law firm. Now I have finally obtained my paralegal degree and work my dream job.

  • ashley April 15, 2013, 11:44 pm

    You are absolutely perfect for that position! Congrats!! 🙂

  • Danni April 16, 2013, 3:58 am

    Congratulations on your new (awesome) job!! My first real employment was at 17, coaching young swimmers and teaching racing technique. LOVED it and felt really lucky to have such a fun, sporty summer job : )

    S0 I have literally avoided triathlons like the plague because, for entirely unidentifiable and irrational reasons, I’m terrified of the cycling (I’ve swum competitively for 10 years and run long distance for my university, so seriously, I have no excuses). That being said, THIS makes me want to try one — it’s like the perfect entry-way for an unreasonably reluctant athlete! And it’s full of pro-woman, community spirit, which I LOVE. So I’d say you’re already kicking booty and taking names, because with one post you’ve social-media-convinced at least this girl to see if I can find a way to get from Boston to one of the race locations next fall! Thank you for the inspiration : ) Now to find a bike….

  • Heather From KC April 16, 2013, 8:38 am

    Way to go!!! My jobs have been: McDonalds, US Attorney’s Office, a major shoe store, contractor for the governement and now I work for DHS (12 years and still loving it)

  • Jennifer April 16, 2013, 8:45 am

    Sounds like an exciting opportunity!

    I got the sense from your “Dear Reader” post though that you were stepping back to spend more time with your family and your other businesses? Did this opportunity come up last minute?

    • Caitlin April 16, 2013, 8:56 am

      No, I just couldn’t say it at the time because it wasn’t final. This is part of the ‘other things’ I need to focus on!

      • Kelly April 17, 2013, 2:36 pm

        I had the same thought as Jennifer based on this: “I’m stepping back – not away! – from blogging to focus on other things in my life – namely, being a mother, running Operation Beautiful, and supporting our family business.” Given the “namely” part of that sentence, I was surprised to see this announcement. Regardless, it’s great that you’ve found something that you’re excited and passionate about. Good luck with your new endeavor! I’ve loved your blog, and I’m part of the faithful that intends to keep reading for as long as you keep writing.

  • Sarah April 16, 2013, 9:00 am

    We had the same first job, ha ha!

  • Amy Q April 16, 2013, 9:11 am

    I live in Lake Placid, NY- home of an Iron Man, with a very tough field of local triathletes. In many ways, this is not inspiring as much as it is overwhelming and deterring to those who’d like to try tris but aren’t operating on the same level as Iron People (yet, or ever). I’d LOVE to be an ambassador to bring this awesome celebration of life and fitness and freedom and empowerment for women to this part of the country— ESPECIALLY TODAY……

  • Amy Q April 16, 2013, 9:16 am

    AND PS – how about this for a dream job? Your positive attitude, hard work, and beautiful personality have paid off and are really inspirational– congratulations!

  • dotsie April 16, 2013, 9:45 am

    Congratulations! What a cool job!

    …and you kinda made me think about training for something like this, as a newbie!

  • colleen April 16, 2013, 10:13 am

    Congrats Caitlin! I’ve worked as a movie theatre concessions person, pizza server, a cashier, various postions at my college dining hall (server, cleaner, food prep, bartender, supervisor, student manager, etc.), cashier at a grocery store, a community planner, grant writer, project manager, and so much more. It definitely give you a little bit of appreciation for all types of jobs.

  • Lea @ Greens & Coffee Beans April 16, 2013, 11:43 am

    Congrats on the new job! It sounds like such a fun position!
    Does Rambling Rose still do the Half-Marathons? I would love to be an ambassador for those, I would actually love to one day participate in one of the Rambling Rose triathlons, but that requires me learning how to swim which might take a little while to happen.
    My favorite job is actually my current job! I teach Pilates classes at my college and it is seriously the best job ever, I always look forward to going to work!

  • stephanie April 16, 2013, 11:50 am

    That sounds like the perfect job for you! Congratulations!

    I also worked as an urban planner and decided it wasn’t for me. Well, actually I worked as an architect but did mostly urban design and planning projects. 2 years ago I quit and now I’m studying acupuncture ! Oh yeah, and designing jewellery…

    Just goes to show that you never know where you’re going to end up in life 🙂

  • heather April 16, 2013, 12:48 pm

    is that a publix uniform?!?! haha love it.

    • Caitlin April 16, 2013, 3:33 pm

      lol yes

  • Jessica April 16, 2013, 1:10 pm

    Awesome! I’m doing my first Ramblin’ Rose in Raleigh this year. I thought you might be interested in this piece I saw yesterday…Raleigh woman who was inspired after doing the Ramblin’ Rose! http://www.wral.com/runner-moms-how-one-mom-made-it-to-monday-s-boston-marathon/12334235/

    • Jessica April 16, 2013, 1:12 pm

      I should also mention that I very much hope Ms. Stoner and all of her loved ones are safe after the events in Boston yesterday…

  • Ali April 16, 2013, 1:29 pm

    You’ve done a lot of things! What is YOUR dream job?

  • Brooke April 16, 2013, 1:54 pm

    Let’s see… I started at Farmer’s Insurance as a call center representative (5 yrs), career advisor in college, weight loss consultant, recruiter for a university and now a clinical researcher. I would love to have your job and stay at home with my son! 😉

  • Fallon April 16, 2013, 3:18 pm

    Congrats! I have always wanted to do a tri. I will have to look for one in Ontario soon!

  • Kelly April 16, 2013, 4:04 pm

    Very cool! This sounds right up your alley! I love it when people get to do exactly what they want (and are good at) in life! I am an elementary school teacher (2nd grade) and I love it! This is what I was made to do and I am so thankful I get to do it every single day! 🙂

  • Abby April 16, 2013, 5:03 pm

    My first job was a food bar restocker at Ponderosa (also known as Bonanza in some areas). It was when I was 14, so I was earining money and really couldn’t complain. My favorite job was teaching middle school – teaching is my passion. My future dream job would be to become a consultant that helps teachers in different areas to improve and be better at what they do.

  • Karen @ Runner Girl Eats April 16, 2013, 5:15 pm

    My first job that was not baby sitting was at a florist in high school. I loved it! I am still trying to figure out my dream job…it’ll come to me one day 😉 Congrats on your new job!! It’s right up your alley!

  • Gina @ LifetotheFdegree April 16, 2013, 6:10 pm

    Congratulations! That sounds like a perfect fit for you!

    My first job coaching at a soccer camp when I was 14. Eight years later, I got my first real job as a teacher and taught at the same school where that camp was held…destiny!

  • Liza April 16, 2013, 9:24 pm

    I have never really had a job. I was a competitive athlete until I was 21 so I guess that was my job? And then I went to college full time and then I went to grad school and then I got married. It feels weird typing that out…that I’ve never had a job before.

  • Art @ Fit at fifty April 16, 2013, 10:20 pm


  • Sara April 17, 2013, 12:14 pm

    Wow that’s awesome, that sounds like such a fun job. I want to see if there is a similar program in Massachusetts, those triathlons sound great. I would say my absolute dream job would to be running the charitable foundations for a Major Sports team. Its been my dream job forever- maybe someday! 🙂

    Good hearing from you! 🙂

  • Melissa April 17, 2013, 11:41 pm

    My first job was at a pool concession stand – I worked there for 5 summers throughout high school and college. I was promoted to a manager position in my first year, which made me really proud 🙂

    Other jobs I had over the years include a Cold Stone crew member, sales associate at Forever 21, intern at a fine arts school in Costa Rica when I studied abroad, intern with Girls on the Run, program manager assistant at a nonprofit, tutor through my college, and now I’m a banker (so not related to anything else I’ve done… How I ended up here is a long story, haha!) I’m also in grad school for counseling so hopefully I get to change careers when I graduate!

  • Ja @Ja on the Run April 17, 2013, 11:49 pm

    Congratulations! You have the coolest job ever!

  • Katie April 18, 2013, 12:29 am

    What a perfect job for you! I think you will rock this new position!
    I was a little shocked to see you had a new part time position because I felt like your “Dear Reader” post came across as you were looking to take a step back in life and gain more balance. But, change helps motivate us all and I already can see your enthusiasm for this new career. Good luck and can not wait to see what great things come from this new position!

  • Jacalyn April 18, 2013, 5:48 am

    Congrats! Its awesome getting paid to do something you love.

    My jobs: First job was at a cookie and ice cream store in the mall, sold photos at Six Flags over Texas, worked summers at an aerospace plant taking inventory, dry cleaners, student athlete, receptionist at 24 hour fitness, math tutor in college during volleyball season, bartender in the offseason, assistant volleyball coach after college, research assistant and finally a Physician Assistant (first for a private practice surgeon, now at the most awesome cancer hospital in the world).

    To be honest, my favorite job was actually playing volleyball in college. It was awesome getting paid to play volleyball while I was going to school. That would be my ultimate. Someone, please pay me to workout and play sports. How do these lucky triathletes get that gig? ; )

    What a cool race series. I live in VA so a lot of those locations are super close to me. Ive literally never ever considered a tri of any type before but I really think I just might be able to pull that off. Hmmmmm….:)

    Congrats on the new job – you certainly have an interesting plethora of jobs over the years! Looks like Ramblin Rose is a great organization. My first job was a supermarket cashier as well….so not fun! Thankfully I switched to the bakery department after a year – so much better and lots of (unhealthy) snacking haha

    congrats on the new job!!! Sounds exciting!!!

    Dream job? social media/marketing consultant for one of my favorite companies based in annapolis – like fleet feet, or some similarly minded small business – where i can stay at home/have flexible hours and still feel like a contributing member to society 🙂

    First job? Grocery bagger at a store called Hannafords in Essex, Vermont – let me tell you doing those grocery cart round ups with a slush filled parking lot or in sub freezing weather was NOT fun. But it built character 🙂 😉
