Today, my company announced an acquisition. And with that acquisition, came new drug products. One of which happens to be a medication to treat infections that are the result of pseudomonas aeruginosa, a common bacteria found in people with cystic fibrosis. The drug is approved in Europe and Canada. Still, MY company will produce a CF drug.
When I graduated from college with a degree in Chemistry, I had no idea what my path would be or where it would lead. Somehow, I ended up here. In a job that nearly didn’t happen. I wasn’t looking. A friend called to tell me about the company and a job he thought I would be a good fit for. I interviewed. I didn’t get the job. But one of the directors I interviewed with thought I would be perfect for another opening and so I was asked to come in and interview again. I almost declined. But something made me return. Fate. And now I work for a company that makes a CF drug. Granted it isn’t a blockbuster drug by any means. It isn’t a cure or even a treatment for CF. But it is a drug to treat pulmonary infections in those with CF. And maybe this is just the beginning. Maybe I can help my husband in some way.
I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know I am exactly where I’m meant to be.
