I am a registered nurse for the past 15 yrs. I have worked in many areas, ER, Psychiatry, Case Management, L&D, general nursing. I love doing Disease Management. It is so wonderful to meet new people and talk to them about their health. I used to weigh over 200 pounds. I was pretty unconcerned about my weight until my father died from the complications of stroke. He had untreated high blood pressure and familial high cholesterol. He was on medication, but it wasn't doing the trick and he never pushed the issue. And when he didn't "feel" any different, he quit taking the medication altogether. My passion is to help mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers value themselves and take care of themselves. I am very serious about being healthy and taking care of yourself and your family. I feel it is an honor to work with wonderful people everyday and i feel blessed to get paid to do it! I would do it for free if I was wealthy! I lost my weight through Gastric bypass, and have kept the weight off for five years. I know what it is like to struggle with your weight, to feel disheartened and discouraged and I am here to be your Cheer Team and Your support! Together we can do Great Things! I look forward to talking and getting to know you all! Welcome!
