THE ‘ANNIE EDSON TAYLOR’ ROLE – Pharmacy Specialist (OTE: $100,000 – $110,000 + BONUS)

Annie Edson Taylor

In 1829, William ‘Red’ Hill, Jr. strapped himself into a barrel and went over the Niagara Falls.

THE ‘BEE’S KNEES’ NURSE PRACTITIONER ROLE ($55.00 – $60.00 / HOUR)

SONY DSC

The phrase “the bee’s knees” gained popularity in the 1920’s.
Ever wonder where it came from?
Well … probably not … but even so, the truth is … no one really knows, for sure.

Some argue it has to do with the fact that as a bee travels from flower to flower and back to the hive … it carries pollen on its legs.
Naturally … the sweetness of that pollen is collected around their knees.

Others maintain it stems from the phrase ‘the Be all and End all’ … or, in short … “the B’s ‘n’ E’s” (say it fast … and it sounds like it).

In any event … while we may not know the origin … we do know it stands for something which is highly regarded.

What does this have to do with our latest role? Well … nothing really.

THE ‘LOUIS HEBERT’ PHARMACY MANAGER ROLE ($120,000 – $130,000)

Louis Hebert

Did you know Louis Hebert is considered Canada’s first apothecary … as well as the first European to farm here?

In 1617 … Louis, his wife and their three children sold most of their belongings in Paris, France … and boarded a ship destined for Quebec … (without iPads or Netflix to keep them entertained).

Upon their arrival … Louis’ knowledge as an apothecary … as well as his small store of grain … was an absolute godsend to the sick and starving … in his new ‘hood’.

Louis was the first settler to sow wheat and vegetables in Quebec … but he was forced into a bit of a ‘raw deal’.

You see, as a condition of his coming to “New France’ … Louis was indentured to the Canada Company for 2 years. This meant he had to hand over all the produce and grain he harvested during that time!

Once those 2 difficult years passed … he was awarded his own parcel of land and named a Lord for his contribution!

Unfortunately … one day in 1627 … Louis slipped on a patch of ice … and died from his injuries!

What does this have to do with our latest role? Well … nothing really.
