  1. Anne Llewellyn

    Great interview with two good shifters! Glad to know both of you!

    • Elizabeth

      Thanks, Anne! You’re certainly another shifter, near and dear to my heart. Appreciate the feedback- glad you enjoyed the show!

    • Christy

      Thanks, Anne! You’ve made a nice shift for yourself, too. Here’s to your continued success!

  2. Leah Martinez-Davis

    Thanks for sharing. It’s great to listen to another great interview. Christy and I share some similarities. I, too, went straight into the NICU after nursing school, and that’s really my entire clinical background. I also got to the point where I didn’t like where I was; I wasn’t happy all of a sudden. I knew I wanted something that involved professional development. Now that I’m in a nurse educator role, I am happy again. Thank you. I enjoy listening to your podcast.

    • Elizabeth

      YAY, Leah! So glad to hear that you made the shift to a nursing role that makes you happy. I am so glad that you enjoyed the interview. Feel free to pass the podcast along to another nurse, nursing student, or friend. Enjoy the rest of your day!

    • Christy

      Leah, your comment warmed my heart! Thank you. It’s always nice to meet another (former) NICU nurse. It’s a hard hit when the specialty that once meant so much, suddenly becomes, well, not so special. I’m glad to hear you found a new love in professional development. You successfully made a Change of Shift! Congratulations, Leah!!

    Christy, and Elizabeth. I stumbled across this page while looking for ideas on how to start a business. I relate completely with Christy’s story. I am a L&D nurse, and its all that I know. I love what I do and the population but I am already burnt out after 6 years of nursing. I also cannot picture myself doing another area of bedside nursing if I left this area. On the side I do some community nursing seeing pregnant high risk patients at home. I love teaching and the schedule autonomy but hate the administration aspect of this company. I think I have a good idea for a company but have absolutely no clue how to begin, but I will be following, and this gave me hope so thank you!
