Yoga Trapeze at The Compound
I have 25 years of Critical Care and Emergency Department nursing experience. I started as a Nurse Extern/Tech in the CVICU (Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit) at The Medical Center of Central Georgia. When I graduated from Nursing School, I began my career in the CCU (Coronary Care Unit) where I became a preceptor and charge nurse. We transitioned that unit to a MICU (Medical Intensive Care Unit) where I worked for 4 years. I then transitioned to our Level One Trauma Center ER (Emergency Room) where I worked as a Trauma/Critical Care Nurse, Charge Nurse, and Preceptor for 7 years. I left there to become the Assistant Director/Clinical Coordinator of the Emergency Department at Coliseum Northside Hospital where I worked for 7 years. I took a contract assignment at Regency Hospital, a Long Term Acute Care facility, where I worked as a staff nurse, preceptor, Charge Nurse, and Relief House Supervisor for 2 years. When my contract was up I went to work in the Intensive Care Unit at Coliseum Medical Center where I continue to work as a staff nurse, preceptor and Relief Charge Nurse. In 2021 Coliseum became Piedmont Macon Hospital. In 2010 Fitness & Obstacle Course Racing changed my life and my health. I\'ve lost over 100lbs through fitness and changing my nutrition. In 2012, I started my gym, The Compound, in my garage and have since grown it to a brick and mortar, 2600 square foot fitness facility. In 2021 I added a 200 hour Yoga Teacher certification and a 30 hour Yoga Trapeze Certification. In 2022 I added a 30 hour Stretching Coach certification, I\'ve completed the YogaBody Business Mastery Course and in April will complete my 30 hour Breathing Coach certification.
