RN, Health Coach
Hello all! I'm Valerie, RN, Health Coach. I am a lifelong Topekan, born and raised in Topeka, KS, and a graduate from Washburn University with my BSN. I am also certified in health coaching and as a BLS instructor. I have worked in numerous areas of nursing during my career including, telemetry, pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, neurosurgery, instructional, office management, care management, hospice, and was fortunate enough to get into health coaching, a field that I truly fell in love with. Working as a health coach has allowed me to build amazing relationships with clients by helping them to improve their health literacy and realize their true health and wellness potential. My next professional goal is to become certified in nutrition to further serve my clients in their journey toward optimal health. My greatest personal achievement has been raising my 2 children, Shawn (daughter), and Cael (son), into amazing adults. I love singing, hiking, deserts, photography, gardening, basking in the sun, traveling, yoga, horseback riding, learning, and making connections with amazing people.
