I knew from a young age that I wanted to be involved in healthcare. I wanted to help people feel better and now its been 29 years and I have been amazed at what I have seen and learned over the years.
I received my BSN in Nursing in 1988 and spent 15 years in various hospital settings from hospitals to urgent cares. I spent the majority of time in Emergency Departments across the country.
As much as I enjoyed the excitement of emergency departments, I felt a calling to move on and further my education to have more of an impact with a one on one focus. I received my Masters in Nursing in 2000 with a speciality in Geriatrics.
It was during this time period that I became keenly aware that while we all share similar characteristics, we are also uniquely different and need to be treated individually.
Each client provides invaluable information by simply listening to them. Understanding that each symptom and illness is a conversation in which the body is trying to tell you something is a key to restoring optimal health. Instead of suppressing the conversation, lets identify the underlying causes of the symptoms and illnesses thus restoring the function of the mind and body to thrive.
Once I began seeing clients I began to realize two key points. The first is that the body is self healing. We just need to listen, have a conversation with our symptoms and then just get out of its way. Second key point and most important is that God created us whole and complete beings who are meant to thrive!
Once I realized these truths, I decided to once again further my education. I obtained my doctorate in Chiropractic in 2006. I studied numerous other techniques such as NET, TBM, The Lifeline, Applied Kinesiology, Cranial Release, Age management, Functional Medicine and multiple nutrition seminars.
I opened a wellness clinic in 2006 and for the next seven years utilized the various tools to help people identify the underlying issues that were challenging their health and created strategies that enabled them to restore their health and lives. After seven years, I sold the practice and my family moved to Austin, Texas to enjoy a warmer climate
I joined a multi disciplinary health clinic in May of 2014 and worked with clients utilizing my tools as a Nurse Practitioner and Chiropractor. After all these years, I have seen great care provided along with very poor care. It became obvious to me that I needed to speak more freely about what I knew to be true. That is we are created to be healthy joyful beings but we take these symptoms and shoot the messenger so to say. Instead of listening and having a conversation with our symptoms, we suppress them and or remove the problem issue from the body. I believe that is a great dis service. Though its done on a regular basis in health care, I became the most outraged and frustrated over the ease in which doctors would remove people’s gallbladders. I decided to focus more of my time to work with clients who were deceived and now have to learn how to live without a gallbladder. My mom was one of these people that made me look back and see the injustice that is happening every day at an alarming rate.
Now I want to show people that although they don’t have a gallbladder they can still thrive. They just need to make some modifications and support themselves a little differently than other people. Treat your self with loving kindness and your mind body and spirit will begin to soar!
