As indicated by my avatar, Nuclear Chemist... retired.  Oh, and Jmike...  after traveling all over the USA and making 32 trips to Russia. I have earned enough Delta FF miles to go to the moon and back 5 times.  I'm running out though, only 500K miles left.

Should be good for a couple more trips to Florida.

Going to Phoenix this next February, but that is a short trip and I don't waste those valuable miles on short trips.  We got upgraded going to Florida this year.  I am actually thinking about Kona but don't have a timeframe yet.

You have a few years on me, but I am confident that I can get there!

My career is a little less exciting than nuclear chemist or cpa for a casino. I work in transportation- helping to run a dispatch group. We are nationwide so it keeps me busy, however not as golf friendly as some of the other fields I should have entered lol.

I'm a drug dealer... Insulin. I have been a rep in pharma for 10 years now. It's an ok job, I've done well, but the move back to sales was necessitated by the birth of our three kids and mounting debt from being a very low paid teacher/coach. I miss following my passion, coaching hoops, but our family needed the income. I dream of winning a lottery of some kind just so I can get back to my true passion. It won't ever happen, but I can't complain about my job either.

It's on here earlier in the thread but I do exactly what my screen name implies. I'm a senior pastor of a congregation of about 650 with a school of 250 kids and a staff of 50 or so people. I also have some asortedjobs in my church body including being the chaplain for our deaconesses. I enjoy that gig.

... After starting out as a DJ going from a small town in NC and several stops along the way finally making it all the way to Chicago, I changed careers and have been an actor with the Screen Actors Guild for over 35 years. Thankfully I have never needed a supplemental job and have been able to make a living at my craft, so I am very lucky. Film and TV are a ton of fun but the big money is in commercial acting. I have been in over 100 commercials in my career and have been the TV spokesperson for Humana going on 17 years now. The bad thing about acting is you have lots of down time when you aren't working with no money coming in. The good thing about acting is you have lots of down time and that means TONS of golf. ;) I have done quite a few golf commercials and training films so my two passions have combined several times and that was always fun and rewarding.

Missed this thread when I joined last summer.

 

I made a career change about 14 months ago.

 

Currently I am Tournament and Outing Director for a 36 hole golf course in Maryland.

 

I absolutely love what I do and it has allowed me a lot of great opportunities in the golf industry in a very short time.

 

Prior I had been with Hilton Hotels for 21 years and Holiday Inn for 5 years prior to that.

 

The final 12 years as a General Manager and a Director of Sales before that.

 

It's been the best move I could have ever made and only wish I had done it 15 years ago when I had the opportunity.

Sales Manager for Johnson Controls Inc upstate NY and Vermont. Love the job. I get to work with an amazing team, have a flexible schedule, and get to see the inner workings of buildings' heating/cooling systems, building controls, fire and security systems. Small industry from the standpoint of how many people are in it, but would encourage any high schooler to take a look at this industry.
