I knew from the age of 6 that I wanted to be either a nurse or a doctor. So I began building my career quite early. Days were spent bandaging stuffed animals, collecting bugs and making medicines that I churned from grass and dandelions spun in the front wheel of my upside down tricycle. By 16 years old I graduated to caring for real people in real hospitals and I worked over 40 years as a nurse clinical specialist and Assistant Professor of nursing.
During my career as a nurse educator, I found I had a deep passion for explaining complex material and making it both enjoyable and understandable to my students. During that time I also wrote several articles for nursing journals as well as a couple of chapters for medical books.
In 1997, publishing under my former name Jill H. Podjasek MS RN, The Ten Habits of Naturally Slim People.... and how to make them part of your life.....I made a single foray into mass market non-fiction publishing.
Fast Forward to 2016..... I am now in private practice as a spiritual counselor and bio- energy consultant for both people and their pets. Currently, I am working on several books that explain difficult esoteric truths about the Body, Mind, Spirit Connection in both people and animals. I also have a metaphysical picture book titled Augusta's Garden making the rounds in search of it's publisher. At 67 years old, I feel my career as an author has just begun!
