Secretary/wellness Program Director
Christina Oliver, 33 years old, born in Raleigh, NC in which was raised in Queens, NY, a mother of two beautiful girls began her nursing career at the age of 23. She received her LPN license from Medical Careers institute located in Newport News,Va in 2010. This is where she learned the fundamental skills and knowledge that would enhance her career. Like many, she is a very hands on learner. Growing up it has always been her desire to work with people and in the medical field. Beginning her career, she worked as a hospice nurse. This allowed her to connect with her patients in a more personal way, as well as caring for the family members as well during these difficult moments. Moving forward she continued to work with the elderly population, as well as with mentally disabled children. Currently she works at Shades of Life Home Care Services, as the assistant administrator dealing directly with clients and employees; She also works at the Norfolk City Jail providing care to inmates, where many may find this place of employment difficult, she sees a s way to continue too spread her gift of caring for others with the sometimes forgotten. Many are called into the nursing field, but there are very few that are actually chosen to empower while still caring for the basic needs.
