PhD in theoretical nuclear physics -> fitness trainer

One thing that some students ask when it comes to signing up for PhD study is what is the job market like afterwards?  One thing is for sure – a PhD does not mean that the only thing you can do is to go further and deeper into academia in the specialty area of your PhD research.  Here's one example of a previous PhD student of mine.  After her PhD in theoeretical nuclear physics (leading to publications here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here) Emma went to work on climate science, where she devloped a successful career.  Most recently she has started a new business as a fitness trainer for children.  Here's a video featuring her for her company Kidz Impact.  I note that the link to nuclear physics is still present: "Kidz Impact and Teen Impact are trading names of Strong Force Limited"
