“THE SECRET OF GETTING AHEAD IS GETTING STARTED ”

ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

     I am a wife, mother, a nurse and believer that we must take care of our bodies by preventing illness and maintaining health whenever possible.  I have a passion for educating people and helping others. During my nursing experience I have worked in the emergency department and seen people with acute and chronic illnesses requiring the need for urgent treatment. I also have been on the other end of the spectrum in a rehabilitation setting where our goals were to get individuals back to a normal life as much as possible by providing wholistic care.  And I also provided home health services as a visiting nurse with excellent rates of preventing hospital readmission.

     My goals are to reach as many individuals and families as I can to promote wellness. In healthcare, we treat the sickness but our goal should be to promote wellness. I also want to mentor and guide the next generation of nurses. I believe it is important to provide support to the future and help others remain passionate about this profession. 

     My latest passion has become entrepreneurship and I believe that if you have a desire to be self-employed you should have any resources available to you to help you reach your goal. Over the years I have gained knowledge, stumbled with my own business endeavors, am succeeding in multiple business ventures and am ready to help those who would like to be the boss!
