The Wellness Clinic brings together body and mind healing.
I began my nursing career as a bath girl at an assisted living facility when I was 20 years old. When I was 22, I decided it was time to go to college and further my career. I went to school at NCSC to obtain my Licensed Practical Nursing degree. I began working at MedCentral hospital on an orthopedic/pediatric unit. I spent time working on the Medical Surgical floor and floating to different areas of the hospital such as the step-down units, and endoscopy as well as the urgent cares and working some in Shelby on the floor as well. I went back to Marion technical college to obtain my Registered Nurse degree through their transition program. I immediately got a job back at MedCentral on orthopedics again and the hospital was soon bought out by OhioHealth. I worked in ortho for 3 years and decided to advance my skills to the Emergency Department. I spent 5 years in the Emergency department while I got my BSN. I also spent three years of that time working as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. I then went to Chamberlain University to get my Family Nurse Practitioner Degree. I taught clinicals for north central state college for the LPN program and RN program as well as serving as adjunct in the lab. I did a little traveling nursing while searching for my next career. I have been most recently working at Morrow County Urgent Care and Catalyst Life Services in the Withdraw Management Unit. My life and work experiences have prepared me for my new adventure, opening The Wellness Clinic. I am so excited to offer a new resource to the community I have served for most of my career.
