Maya Angelou said it best, “People will forget what you do, people will forget what you said, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. Every day at Ageless Wellness Center, it is a privilege to see patients feel better when they leave our office.
It is such an honor my path has lead me to partner with two incredible health care providers, Dr. Jamie Walraven and Linda Faulkner, FNP-C. I think of my resume like steps in life. I graduated from Georgia Southern College in 1986 with a BS in Health and Physical Education and began my career as a teacher in the Fayette County School system. By 1995, I had obtained a Masters and Specialist Degree in Education from the University of West Georgia. I loved teaching and coaching for 19 years in my home town and very proud to be a voted a member of the Fayette County High School Hall of Fame in 2014. It has been a privilege watching young students grow into young adults with character, integrity and sportsmanship; items we stressed daily to our students and athletes, hoping it sticks with them as they develop into adults. Athletics gave me the platform to learn to do the right things in life.
In 2004 I stepped out on a limb and became an entrepreneur, co-founding a real estate company and project management company. Morningside Realty was developed with 28 Realtors and later sold to a National Real Estate firm in 2010. My experience in real estate lead me to open my own company, Morningside Medical, where I worked in procuring real estate sites for medical practices as a licensed realtor, then planning and building facilities with owners and contractors. This lead to diverse opportunities for myself where I also worked as an independent contractor in urgent care centers as a project manager in marketing and operations.
These experience landed me here today at Ageless Wellness Center with Dr. Walraven and Linda Faulkner. I am serving as a co-owner, Chief Financial Officer and Project Manager. What a pleasure it is each day to be part of this organization…no matter how well designed, it is only as good as the people who live and work in it.
