About Wellness In Healthcare

Hi! I’m Dee. I’m a healthcare provider and an exhaustion fighting pro. Basically, if it’s health or wellness related, I’m interested in it and ready to share it with you.

Background

After 16+ years in healthcare, I’ve experienced my share of exhaustion, overwhelm, and putting my health on the back burner. And I’m talking the wayyyyy back burner.

You can read more about my story here. Thankfully, my past and that dark time in my life, led to me to create Wellness in Healthcare nearly 5 years ago. See…a happy ending after all. 🙂

Fast forward to today: I spend my days administering anesthesia for surgery as an Advanced Practitioner in Boston, MA. On nights and weekends, I continue to support nurses through the Wellness in Healthcare platform and community.

Mission

My mission is to help exhausted nurses (and other healthcare professionals) reclaim their energy, health, and optimism about their nursing career. I share resources, tips, tricks, and strategies to help make this a reality. 

Focusing on small shifts, sustainable lifestyle changes, wellness practices, nutrition hacks, and self-care, it’s possible to create a life you love. This community supports a framework designed to serve the whole provider: mind, body, and spirit.

Eating for energy and health has been a recent popular topic and the community is obsessed with how to fuel for optimum performance and wellness. There’s even resources for intermittent fasting.

The goal is to make wellness and a healthy lifestyle Priority Number One…no matter how busy you are!

Why

Because nurses are fleeing the bedside at record numbers and others are looking to leave the nursing profession entirely! Did you know that most new nurses don’t last more than 3 years in the nursing profession? It doesn’t have to be that way! You don’t have to sacrifice your health or sanity for your nursing career.

Inside WIH, you’ll find tips, strategies, and anecdotes to guide you every step of the way, from those who have been there. Let’s take your health and your wellness to new heights. I like to say: It’s time to “tuRN Up Your Health”.

Like I said, I’ve spent 16+ years in healthcare, and I’ve experienced my share of exhaustion and overwhelm. 

After a very public and humiliating rock-bottom moment left me questioning my nursing career and professional trajectory…I found a way to balance the busy demands, the mile long to-do lists and being pulled in a zillion different directions. And this is all way before a pandemic piled onto our already crazy schedules and exhausting workload.

I’ve been using a consistent strategy and rock solid resources for years now. I’m a stronger, healthier, and a more compassionate person because of it.

Stronger Together

I’m here to share all my secrets and hard-earned wisdom with you! You don’t have to give up your nursing career and you don’t have to let your own health or wellness suffer. We are all in this together. Support and community are key for success, and you’ll find plenty of that here.

Welcome to Wellness in Healthcare!

Whether you’re here for support, community, because you love finding new ways to fuel your mind and body, or if you long for a deeper conversation about the realities of healthcare today, I’m so glad you’re here!

tl;dr: exhaustion (Too long, didn’t read)

To sum it up…I’m a healthcare professional who personally and deeply understands exhaustion. I know what it’s like to be fed up with our broken system that leaves nurses exhausted, overwhelmed, and fleeing the profession! And I’ve got the tips, strategies, and support to help you too! Come join us in the Wellness in Healthcare community.

Oh, and in case you were wondering… Outside my love for healthy nutrition and exhaustion fighting superpowers: I’m a lover of animals, spending time in nature, running, skiing, and the occasional glass of bubbles.
