I have always been very passionate about preventative health, including my own. This passion grew even more after working as a bedside nurse taking care of stroke survivors for 30 years, and knowing that my maternal side of the family has been greatly affected by stroke. My mom came from a family of 13, and most of her siblings had a stroke. One of my sisters also had a stroke. My overall nursing experience has allowed me so many opportunities to teach and coach.
After witnessing the devastating effects stroke can have on individuals and their families, I developed a strong desire to learn as much as I can about stroke and nursing education in general. Now, I have decided to become the founder of Nursing Stroke Coach, providing coaching and education, to heighten stroke awareness and help others in the management and prevention of such a devastating disease.

My mission is to provide coaching for stroke survivors and individuals at risk for stroke. This business would focus on individuals with hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, and overweight/obesity. Coaching would provide support and guidance to clients in helping them to achieve their health goals. In addition, stroke education, based on quality research and experience, will be provided via informative posts, free community stroke seminars, and courses for stroke survivors and their caregivers living at home. The education is not only for stroke survivors and their families, but for caregivers, those at risk for stroke, and the general population as well.
My purpose is to provide coaching for stroke survivors and those at risk for stroke. Another reason is to provide informative blog posts that would not only benefit stroke survivors, their families, and those at risk for stroke, but the general population as well. It is important for anyone to be able to recognize the warning signs and symptoms of a stroke and know the action(s) to take in the event that a stroke is taking place.
