Rick Jantz (Street Articles Author)

Greetings. I live in Alberta, Canada but actually admit to being a mountain boy from British Columbia. I've been married for the past 19 years and have two great teenagers who, I'm proud to say, still say "I love you" and give me hugs. Nothing better and I hope that says my wife and I are doing pretty good as parents.

I've been working in the health care industry for some 30 years and have certainly seen a lot of changes, some more difficult than others. I've done quite a bit of writing in my early adult years but moved away from that. I am now trying to get back into it and have "discovered" websites and the incredible enjoyment I am getting out of writing content for the sites I have. It seems to be a great fit and I hope to continue to do well at it.

I am a Baby Boomer and certainly don't always enjoy being branded as one. But then as I think about it more and look at the large number that I'm a part of, I realize that being a Baby Boomer is actually kind of cool. We can influence governments, spending, and causes. Doesn't take many of the 70 million plus to make a difference and change the world...or save an animal. We're all labelled anyways, why not belong to this incredible group!
