Play episode · 46 min

Have you ever thought you can’t change jobs because you’ve invested so much time and effort into your current career path and education? Think again!

After high school, Lyndon Nguyen thought he wanted to be a doctor and started working on his pre-med degree. He soon realized that wasn't for him and got a degree in Biomedical Engineering.

Then he went on to get his Masters in Mechanical Engineering. With his master degree in hand, he started working at Baylor University in the Department of Orthopedics Spine Research facility as a biomedical engineer.

Once again, Lyndon decided to change his career path and went back to school to get his law degree and MBA.

Today, Lyndon is the Executive Director for Love Heals Free Clinic. Love Heals Free Clinic offers temporary free health care clinics across the US.
