In which there’s an announcement (and we’re not pregnant)

I have been traveling a lot lately. See this map for places I’ve been since January of this year:

Where in the US is Elise??

Where in the US is Elise??

About half of it has been for conferences, but the other half was for job interviews. I graduate from my program in two short months and after completing the 23rd grade, most people expect that you’ll be employable. Well, I am!

This is us, standing on a frozen lake in our new city.

In July, Jeff and I will be moving to Minnesota so that I can join the faculty as an Assistant Professor in their pediatric dental division. It is literally my dream job – I’ll be teaching pre-doctoral students and residents and working in their Children’s Hospital and pediatric dental clinic. Our only sadness is that we will have to leave Seattle, a city we’ve come to know and love and the many dear, sweet friends we’ve made here. I am so thankful for their friendships, for the chance to live in the beauty that is the Pacific Northwest, for the training I’ve received from the University of Washington and for the opportunity to fulfill the mission of one of my favorite quotes:

Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good. 

{Minor Myers, Jr.}

More to come.
