Elements of Healing LLC in Portsmouth, Virginia opened for business on October 24, 2016. This home-based company makes herbal products by hand with undivided attention and love.
Elements of Healing LLC has serviced the local Hampton Roads, Virginia area and provided shipping services for customers who reside in states such as North Carolina, Delaware, and Georgia. Today, the company serves individuals across the country.
The overall mission of Elements of Healing LLC is to promote self-care by educating individuals in regards to the safe and proper use of herbal products. Also, the company aims to debunk the false beliefs about the use of herbal products and other alternative healing modalities.
The hope is that individuals will begin to more readily accept and put to use the self-healing practices of old which our ancestors have passed down for generations.
I have been a registered nurse for the past 12 years. I graduated from Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia with an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) on May 8, 2010. I passed boards on April 1, 2011. In February 2015, I graduated from South University Online (based in Savannah, Georgia) with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN).
My work experience is in personal care and home health. I have worked with Medicaid, Medicare, Private Pay, and Veteran Affair clients who are eligible for either home health or personal care services. I have taught Personal Care Aide (PCA) classes and one Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) class.
Anyone who knows me would think that my master’s degree would be in nursing. Unfortunately, that is not the case. I am a June 2018 graduate of the Maryland University of Integrative Health based in Laurel, Maryland, where I obtained my master’s degree in therapeutic herbalism.
