She spent the last 18 years before retirement as an assistant principal at a large high school in Olathe, Kansas. Upon retiring and moving to Florida in 2019, I felt I needed to do something to fill my time. I wanted something part time, working from home, with a flexible schedule. Three months and I did not find anything I liked until Boomerang Transport came along. It is a luxury to be able to accept or decline a trip. Although, I accept as many as possible, just depending on my schedule. I started with Boomerang in October of 2019 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I am able to engage with most clients if they are interested in talking and fortunately, I can carry on a conversation with anyone on any number of mundane topics. Boomerang has been the perfect job for me. And it gets me out of the house for a couple of hours each week and my wife likes that.
