I am the Nurse Practitioner with Skinny Me.
I received an Associate Degree in Nursing from Lenoir Community College in 1999. Upon completion, I attended East Carolina University and earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2002. In 2006, I completed my Master of Science in Nursing at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
I am a nationally certified Family Nurse Practitioner through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). I am also certified in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) through the University of South Carolina. In addition, I hold certifications in CPR, ACLS and have served as an expert witness in DUI cases.
My extensive clinical experience includes medical surgical nursing, home health care, case management, ICU/CCU, family practice, internal medicine and on-site clinical practice within a retail healthcare setting. I came to work at Skinny Me in early 2014 because I believe in this diet and I wanted to become involved with enhancing healthy lifestyles.
I was a Skinny Me patient prior to beginning my employment. I did my first round on the hCG diet in 2013, which resulted in a 32 pound weight loss! During my second round, in 2014, I lost an additional 18 pounds – for me that was 2 shirt sizes and 2 pants sizes!
