Are you curious as to how This Woman spent her Day Without a Woman?
I didn’t have to. I work part time as a contract speech pathologist, providing speech therapy through a local agency. As such, I set my own schedule, determine my own patients, and can take time off whenever I want. It’s the best job I’ve ever had.
