I see scrubs in my future!!!

I think only Anita heard about this, but this is verrrry big! My best friend, Melissa, works at Tidewater Eye Care. She's a front desk receptionist. Two weeks ago, a position came open and I pounced on it. After a long, grueling waiting period, I heard this morning that I didn't get the job. While that was a let down, I still wondered why they had called me this morning. Kim Goddin (a supervisor from the office) had called me to ask if I would be interested in taking a Medical Assistant position. Now, here's where I got excited. According to Kim, I would be the assistant to Dr.Pavalon (who is an optomitrist). I would be meeting with his patients before he sees them, going over their medical information, if they are having a procedure done, telling them what they can expect, etc. Also, I will assist the doctor in minor procedures; handing him his tools, etc. Medical Assistants start out at 12 dollars an hour. I can live with that. All I need to make sure of is that it is a full time position, and I'm covered. But, it will all be finalized tomorrow. They haven't officially said I have it, but they said it in so many words. Kim Goddin (it's such a small world) also used to go to Nansemond River Baptist when I was living at home. Mom used to keep her son, Trevor, in the nursery, and did so for years. Sorry, little tid bit of information.
BUT, the job has other perks. I work 8:30 to 5 every day. Weekends I have off, holidays I have off and are paid, if the doctor isn't working that day, I have off (that scares me a bit, but that's why I want to make sure it's full time) and I get to wear scrubs! That's one of my favorite parts of the whole thing. SO, hopefully tomorrow I will have a new job!

Love you all, and I'm SOOOO excited!

that's awesome! i worked with many a medical assistant, and i always thought their jobs looked a little bit fun. (i'd much MUCH rather do it in an optomotrist's office than a gastroenterologist's!)

best of luck tomorrow :)

oh, and i'm an aim stalker, so i knew you weren't in a ditch!
