We often define ourselves by the career, it is our story of what we do in the world, when it is taken away we are forced to reinvent ourselves.
Lisa Evans was drawn to nursing at 17 years old; She qualified and trained as a midwife and specialised in neonatal care.
Nursing is an international career and opens so many travel opportunities. She set out on her travels to Australia in 1988, met an English man in 1990, married in 91, and they settled in Perth, Western Australia. In her words, they became grown-ups, settled, and had three children.
It is a lovely story of travel adventures, finding a career and settling into family life. But then as life does, the universe delivers a change.
A virus destroyed all of the nerves in her vestibular system, which means balance and hearing. The door to her nursing career closed, and now in her 40s, she had to find a new job and new meaning for her life.
Our conversation is about Lisa’s journey into becoming the storytelling midwife and starting a new business and career at the age of 50.
