As nurses, we tend to put others needs ahead of our own, often at the expense of our health. I know,I did for years- working crazy hours/shifts, taking care of my family, and never finding the time for me. As the years went by, the pounds piled on. I found myself 25 pounds overweight, tired, cranky, and resigned to being a frumpy nurse and mom.
A dear friend of mine gave me the gift of health-3 years ago, I lost those 25 pounds by learning to eat right, exercise and most importantly that it IS ok to take care of me.
As a Certified Health Coach, I continue to take my learnings and pay it forward to nurses (and others) across the United States, finding a truly rewarding second career. I consistently use my nursing skills- caring, understanding, empathy and most importantly compassion. When I hear “you’ve given me my life back, ” I know I have made a difference.
Are you as passionate about helping others as I am?
