Why Britney Joined the Healthcare System

"Growing up, I always thought I would be a lawyer or in the business world; in 2007, after I had my son, all of that changed. He was born with a rare condition called Gastroschisis; his stomach wall did not close around his organs. It was a long journey to recovery but he is doing now great. He was in the neonatal intensive care unit, and a huge part of my son's successful recovery is due to the care we received. The nurses and doctors were so compassionate and genuinely cared for my son and me during the process. This compassion moved me to change careers and drove me into the healthcare industry. I felt a desire to give hope to families by assisting them with their health needs in the same fashion these caregivers blessed me".

A Distinctive Clinic with a Unique Logo

When I created this business, my mission was to expand my healthcare knowledge and the community's knowledge. I aim to help people be aware of their differences and find ways to lean on everyone's strengths. By doing this, I believe we can encourage the community to support one another.


The tree-stump road in our logo represents our journey through the growth of knowledge as a community. The butterflies represent the beauty of our destiny after we grow along our journey. The multi-color platform represents the individuality of each person. We are all different, and we all face various obstacles. This ties in directly with the health awareness ribbons, as each color represents a different disease process.


One of my favorite quotes is Our Fingerprints Never Fade in the Lives We Touch by Robert Pattinson. The fingerprints in our name signify this. I made them multicolored as I anticipate I will not only leave a mark on the lives of others, but they will also imprint on mine.

The Value of a Nurse Practitioner

"As a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, I have served this community for over three years. One may ask themselves why to choose a Nurse Practitioner over a Physician. There is a shortage of access to healthcare in the United States. Nurse Practitioners are Board Certified and have a broad scope of practice, thus assisting in more access to health care.


I have nearly 12 years of education, coupled with 12 years of hands-on experience in the medical field. In Ohio, Nurse Practitioners are required to have a Collaborating Physician. The physician is available for consultation with the nurse practitioner, within a timely fashion, as needed. The physician also completes chart audits semi-annually, which is required by the Ohio Board of Nursing.


Like a physician, my role is to listen to your concerns, complete an assessment, provide a diagnoses, and manage the diagnosis. I do prescribe medications and perform small office procedures. I also refer to other providers when appropriate.


Is one more valuable than the other? I say it depends on what you value! The difference between a nurse practitioner and a physician is invaluable. Meaning our differences make us stronger as a whole. Comparing physicians to nurse practitioners is like comparing the moon and the sun. To determine which is more valuable is nearly impossible because each has a different purpose, and each contribution is invaluable to our earth."
