Hello World!

2 Jun


A new beginning

My name is Britney!  I am a 30 year old single mother of a beautiful 2 year old girl who can say, “cardiomyopathy”.

I am writing this blog as an effort to document my progress as I venture into the working world as an echo tech.  An echo tech is a person that takes an ultrasound of the heart.  WHen most people think of ultrasound they think of pregnant women and babies, but truth be told, ultrasounds can be done on many other body parts including the heart.  That’s what I am studying to be, an echo tech, a pediatric echo tech to be exact.

As of now I am still in school and about to begin my externship.  I was recently given a beautiful opportunity as to the destination of my externship.  However, the downside is that it will be longer than once expected (double the time)!  And while I am appreciative for the extensive training that awaits me,  I am fearful that I won’t be able to eat if I don’t come up with some cleaver ways to earn some money (since its unpaid work for 6 months working 40+ hours a week)!  So I am trying to think “outside of the box” as to new ways to help support my education, and to give me the wings I need to succeed in my new chosen career.  I need to raise $8000.  I have a few tricks up my sleeve to earn the money.

I appreciate any words of encouragement, suggestions as to scholarships, ways to earn extra cash, or how to be more marketable.

Please follow me on my journey and see where it takes me!
