Not Really A Blog Post

Hello Everyone,

I am in the midst of looking for a career change and if anyone hears of any job opportunities in Omaha, Nebraska specifically within the healthcare field of dispute resolution, since that is my concentration area, please let me know. In addition, if other areas of dispute resolution opportunites in Omaha arise, I am flexible enough to consider them as well. I am definitely looking to relocate to Omaha.

Thank you and everyone take care.
