My Journey (and Blog) Begins
I was minding my own business on a vacation a year ago when I met that special someone. After a year we have decided to make the commitment to marry. That sounds all well and good except my spouse is a national of the United Kingdom and has a rather good and important research position there. We've been flying back and forth across the Atlantic for a year and we've jointly decided that the best option is for me to move over there.
I embrace change, but this is a completely different league than I'm used to. I need to learn if I can even work over there. Being a PT is a huge part of my identity, it even is part of my email address. I've been practicing here for nearly 2 decades. How much of my experience is transferable skills and knowledge and how much of it is as useful as an old OASIS 1 tool? Who do I contact? How do I know if my credentials will be accepted? Is there a national organization that can help, like the APTA here? I have had to do a fair amount of research!
I'm actually a bit into the process already. We just exchanged our vows this past Saturday. In my next entry I'll explain how far along the path I am.
