About

The Persevering Practitioner

Like so many others, I have had huge ups and downs in all areas of life ranging from failed marriages and blending families, juggling the care of four children while working full-time and going to school, and my own battles with weight and self worth.

One would think being a nurse practitioner specializing in endocrinology would mean I have my act together, but nothing could be farther from the truth. In reality, I’m generally a hot mess. In addition to my full-time job I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I experience the same stress and emotional hardships as everyone else. This usually results in a lack of self-care and a constant battle to regain a sense of control and peace of mind.

How have I maintained my sanity? Well that’s a good question and if I ever fully understand the answer, I’ll be sure to pass it along! All I can truly promise is to share my experiences, knowledge and continued laughs through life.
