DIANE PAGAN

I want to be a writer when I grow up again (I like being a nurse practitioner but want to embellish  on it a little), but since dreams don’t pay bills, I  still work full time as a nurse practitioner in internal medicine.

My three children are trying to raise me to be a responsible adult, but they tell me I don’t listen very well.

My husband puts up with my antics, most likely because they provide him with much needed comic relief in place of  never-ending work related stress.

Thankfully my dog and Russian tortoise keep their comments to themselves.
