My name is Ruth. I grew up in Maine but moved out west when I was 19. I just moved back this past fall. I have been divorced since 2012. I have three kids ages 10,9, and 5. I work in the ICU as a unit secretary/nurse assistant. I am attending college and will continue until I eventually get my NP.
Although school and career are important to me I have come to recognize that there has to be a balance. My kids will only be little once and I plan on enjoying every moment I can with them. I had the opportunity to coach my sons basketball team this winter and absolutely loved it... and I think he eventually came to accept it
