Andrea’s Resume Highlights

Why I Created Wellness Strategies Group

I’ve spent 30 years in the nursing industry helping patients and clients improve their health and wellness.  What I realized, both professionally and personally, is that there is a gap in our healthcare system.  

I see that patients and clients are lost and lack adequate education about their own health and wellness, and about what they should expect from their healthcare system. 

In the fall of 2020, I sat in a physician’s office, next to my husband. The doctor shared the unexpected news that he had an incurable cancer.  The physician continued speaking about the disease and treatment options, but I didn’t hear anything the physician said.

There were so many questions. Even as an experienced healthcare professional, I felt lost and confused.  I wasn’t sure what the next best step was.  I was no longer the nurse: I was the loved one and caregiver.  

This experience ignited the passion to start Wellness Strategies Group. I’m dedicated to providing comprehensive strategies and solutions for my clients so they can be empowered and educated in their healthcare journey.

If you are feeling unsure or overwhelmed, I’m here to help you as your personal educator, supporter and Healthcare Advocate.  You don’t have to travel the journey alone.
