About Barry


Bio

I worked in healthcare for 17 years. I was a travel nurse, working at the Lower Keys Medical Center in Key West, FL, when I decided it was time for something different. I did not have a plan, I had burnt a few bridges, and I had given up my life's work. At times, I call it the dumbest thing I've ever day. Others, it was brilliant. Mostly, I was terrified, as my health was faltering and the prospect of being disabled for the rest of my life was discussed openly by every doctor I had. At 36...

I worked in healthcare for 17 years. I was a travel nurse, working at the Lower Keys Medical Center in Key West, FL, when I decided it was time for something different. I did not have a plan, I had burnt a few bridges, and I had given up my life's work. At times, I call it the dumbest thing I've ever day. Others, it was brilliant. Mostly, I was terrified, as my health was faltering and the prospect of being disabled for the rest of my life was discussed openly by every doctor I had. At 36 years old, they told my life was over.

I work remotely, now. My health has improved drastically, and I'm discovering the things about healthcare I loved, past the politics and rapid political shifts. I loved working with people, so I work customer service now. I've always had great pride in my brain, and so I'm an independent freelance micro-tasker (I do all the things you never thought someone got paid for, like fact checking social media posts). And I always loved teaching.

Don't count me out as a emotional softy, just yet. I worked the intensive care and emergency room of seven hospitals, at least two of them could be considered "inner city" or "urban." I have high standards and expectations. I expect that you will work for your grade, just as I have worked for every dollar I have ever made. I have worked in addiction, mental health, community engagement, political organizing, content creation and moderation, writing social media, and data analytics. In my free time, I'm an amateur photographer and world traveler.

I live in Jacksonville, Florida, and I try to make everything exciting for the people around me. Most of the time, people just think I'm a little off. I promise, I know what I'm talking about, and I'll make sure you do, too, by the end.

I was an ICU and emergency department Registered Nurse for 8 years. I passed the NCLEX and my Certified Critical-Care RN tests on the first try. I worked in Level I and II trauma centers. I have also worked as a nurse in both mental health and dialysis inpatient and out
