I love the healthcare industry.
One of my very first “real” jobs was working as a Resident Assistant, turned Weekend Cook, turned Activities Director, turned Marketing Intern, at a rural long-term care facility in the heart of Sweet Potato Country, USA (Vardaman, Mississippi, anyone?).
There were some great moments, like receiving over a dozen hugs from my newly adopted “grandparents” after every piano rendition of “When the Saints…”
When you hear the term “Millennials”, do you think of young parents?
Recent statistics say you should.
According to 2015 Goldman Sachs report, almost all of new mothers – nearly 90 percent – were millennials.
Wasn't it just yesterday this debt-strapped and unemployed generation was leaving college to Occupy Wall Street and move into their parent’s basement?
Well, now they are starting their own families and, in true millennial fashion, rewriting traditional gendered roles as they go.
Goldman Sachs reports American parents currently spend $1 trillion each year on their children, not including college costs - a figure that is forecasted to grow in coming years.
My college years weren’t characterized by wild sorority parties, study abroad opportunities, nor honor school retreats.
Instead, they were spent caring for my two-time cancer survivor, five-time hip replacement recipient grandmother suffering from late stage Alzheimer’s.
Driving her to and from doctor’s appointments, preparing meals and distributing medication, ensuring post-op physical therapy compliance dominated my college years.
