Delaware Law School graduate Nikki Vasconez redefined the “JD Advantage” employment statistic, taking her legal education and turning to the lively field of telepathic communication with animals.
For the Philadelphia-area real estate attorney, that equates to a raise.
Vasconez had earned around $75,000 as a lawyer, but now she charges $350/hour to commune with animals, conveying their ideas that – presumably – go beyond “eat, sleep, repeat.” She is also able to talk to dead animals because…why not? It’s just as plausible.
By limiting herself to two readings a day, she’s now looking at close to $170,000/year, which still isn’t Biglaw money, but it does mean she works two hours a day looking at pictures of animals and to guess their feelings. And with a waiting list that has grown to as many as 4,000 people at one point, she has years of business lined up.
From the post office :
Although she is very successful and has generated a lot of interest, Vasconez revealed that she also receives criticism online from people who are skeptical and think she is a fraud.
You do not say ?
“I understand this can be confusing because we’re raised to believe that interspecies communication isn’t the norm,” she said.
Yeah. This is the problem.
