Welcome to my MiSpecs, where I share my introSPECtive of wellness. I believe there are various ways to be healthy. On this blog, I plan to discuss how I achieve and maintain physical, mental, and spiritual health. Some topics of discussion will include faith/religion, planning, disease prevention, and life style posts. Music has a constant presence in my life, and I consider it crucial to my physical, mental, and spiritual health. Therefore, many blogs will have an accompanying playlist. I hope you will leave with something new, whether it’s an idea, recipe, or a new song to vibe to.
I am a “southern girl”, as Frankie Beverly would say, from a small town in Alabama called Georgiana. From there God led me to Birmingham, AL. In Birmingham, I found my second home and the most amazing educational institution, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). There I earned my Bachelor’s in Nursing and Masters in Nursing concentrating in Family Primary Care and Rural Health. After graduation, I began my career as a family nurse practitioner in North Carolina where I worked for a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center (FQHC) in a small, rural community. I have now journeyed back to Birmingham where I am a full-time PhD in Nursing student at UAB. My research focus is on sleep quality, weight, and blood pressure in school-aged children.
I truly feel like I am living out parts of my dreams and purpose, and through this blog, I hope to inspire you to seek yours. If you have any questions, requests, or prayer needs please feel free to complete the contact form below.
