Hi! And welcome to my page! I have been posting on and off this blog since 2010, so much has changed! So much life has happened! I started my blog back when I was first diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus because I wanted to show that despite having these invisible illnesses, you could still live a life!
Since 2010, I have earned a master’s and a doctoral program. In those years, I wanted to share my life as a student, full-time employee, and wife. I wore many hats but through the years in school, my determination to succeed only grew. I graduated in May 2015 as Dr. Joanna Tucker. One of the biggest and best accomplishments of my life.
Since 2015 I have started my own Mary Kay business, which I love. I originally started my business to possibly start working from home. And then I succeeded in recieving access to the Publis Student Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program. I will continue to work in public higher education for the next 9 years, and my loans after that time will be forgiven! I am so grateful because I do love what I do and my Mary Kay business is a fabulous side business.
I’ve debated for several months whether to keep this blog going since I’m not longer in school, I wasn’t sure what else I could offer. But then I realized, I miss this blog. I miss sharing my life and feelings to the great void. So I will continue to share my life, my thoughts, my dreams, my travels and my passions. I hope that someone out there enjoys it. My goal remains to share that despite having an invisible illness, you too can live a great life!
Dr. Joanna Tucker
