Employment Opportunities

New Member

Hello and thank you in advance for reading. My girlfriend and I are considering relocating to the Islands to start a new life. I'm an electrician by trade and also have a lot of experience in Project Managing and Estimating. I am 40 years old and have over 20 years experience. I have given thought to opening up my own business on the Islands as well. My girlfriend is a Neuro tech in the medical field. Essentially what she does is Nerve Conductive Testing and also monitors the spinal cord during Spinal Surgeries. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy your day.

Have you visited here. If not, I suggest a 2-3 week trip. Rent a condo and try to get a feel for how island life would suit you. And even if you've vacationed here, another visit to look at it with "residents eyes" is a good idea.

We do not have any neurosurgeons here, so no spinal surgery. Nerve conduction like EMG? On St Thomas, you might check with Dr Weisher, our neurologist, or Dr Shapiro, the ENT, re: laryngeal EMGs. Does she do any other tests- EKG, etc?

Some orthopedic surgeons do spinal surgery. I don't think any of them in the VI do, but I could be wrong.

Orthopods don't do it on St Thomas- kinda specialized stuff. Can't answer about St Croix.

I am not sure of the 'how this fits in', but it might be helpful. As one who lives with a great amount of neural damage....peripheral nerves and an ABI, I found that most hospitals, doctors and 'specialists' of one sort or another are more than willing to work with someone, as long as they can provide the information. As I am not only a member but sort of a president of the club (clinical specialist in neurobioligical developmental/acquired disorders), I have had great success in non surgical treatment. I would imagine that a technician would be a person of interest at the hospitals, as although they may need to refer out for surgury, such referals would be able to be made on an evidence based manner.

All the best in this and all your aspirations,
