It’s Episode 015 of Fulfilled – The Podcast! What do you do if you realize that where you are is not where you want to be? What if you worked so hard to attain a degree, a goal, land a job or move to a particular area and then you determine that that career, job, or place isn’t fulfilling you? Are you quick to adapt in this situation? Do you involve your partner, the needs of your family, and your own personal fulfillment in the decision making?
We are diving into these topics and more with our Guest today. Melissa Gilroy was first a nutrition major and Chiropractor, who, once she began practicing as a Chiropractor, realized that Chiropractic Medicine wasn’t her true calling. She didn’t feel fulfilled. There were aspects she did enjoy, but it wasn’t what she wanted to do. As one half of a business, one half of a couple and one whole human being, Melissa decided to change careers completely, return for another degree, and pursue a career as a Physician Assistant.
Mel shares her decision making process, how this worked as a part of her relationship, and the considerations and conversations necessary to make that huge change. Not only did Mel complete her PA studies with flying colors, she did it while pregnant and newborn parenting! Wow!
As a Clinical Professor at the same PA Program she matriculated from, Melissa continues to pursue her passion for teaching the next generation of Advanced Practitioner Students while retaining her ability to practice clinically. One day per week you can find Melissa seeing patients as a Gastroenterology PA, a role which she continues to enjoy!
If you’re feeling stuck, struggling with a decision about change, pursuing something new or finding fulfillment, this episode is for you. We detail the decision-making process, how that works in a relationship, and really dig deep into identifying WHY you feel unfulfilled in your current situation. There’s laughter and lightheartedness and so much content to wrap up 2020 on Fulfilled! Thank you for being here, for listening and learning along with us. We can’t wait to serve you more with some exciting Episodes in 2021!
