Q: What is it like working as a Program Director, Healthcare?

Program Director, Healthcare in Columbus:
"Multicultural Meca!"
Pros: Columbus is a very diverse city offering everything a major city has except long commutes and expensive cost of living. The folks in Columbus are friendly and accepting. One of my favorite places I have ever lived. The shopping is outstanding and dining can compete with any large city. Date night with my husband can be as varied as we like. There is always something going on! If budget is an issue there are tons of city parks to stroll/run through and lots of community based events where entry fees are less than $7.00/person and kids under 12 are usually free.
Cons: Winters can be dull/gray. Thankfully, the other three seasons make up for it! I make up for it by really sprucing up for Christmas and keep things bright and cheerful throughout the the winter season.

Program Director, Healthcare in Parsons:
