A belly-dancing surgeon

Meet Dr. Marguerite P. Barnett, plastic surgeon and belly dancer extraordinaire, who practices in Florida. (How does she balance that sword?)

She's featured in...what's this?...an article about how docs can prepare for their retirement.

It helps to have a hobby, and Dr. Barnett has several: she specializes in "East Indian, Indonesian, and Polynesian sacred temple dances." "In retirement, 'I could conceivably fill my time with the dance world, either teaching or performing,' she said."

There are a few common-sense financial tips, but the gist of the article seems to be: stretch your imagination when considering your retirement. Think beyond the financial necessities. They quote a vascular surgeon who earned a law degree (in his 70's!) when he retired from medicine. Now he's thinking about a graduate degree in history...

"How does she balance that sword?" Well, you had already answered that, she "practices in Florida."

I've seen her perform at Festival of the Nile in Orlando, FL...she is a beautiful, elegant dancer and not only can she balance that sword, she can really shimmy and shake while she does it!
