Jessie Stone has a resume that would make any dirtbag proud -- raft guide, pro whitewater kayaker and member of the US freestyle kayak team. At the end of that list is medical doctor. And the director of the Soft Power Health Clinic in Uganda. She is a career shape shifter. who followed her passions and ended up in an unexpected place. How do you know when it's time to step out of the current and follow an alternative path? Trevor Clark traveled to Uganda to tell Jessie's story.
It's good to find another "career shape shifter" as you call it (perfect, by the way). I've always felt fine in this path, but parents and friends have told me my entire adult life that I needed to pick one direction and move towards the top of that ladder. Turns out, this is not my cup 'o tea. Thank you for this story.
