Hi friends! First, let me just thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog. I hope that it means you are either embarking on or continuing to travel through the truly never-ending journey of wellness, and I’m honored to be a part of your trek!
My name is Tess, and I am a Family Nurse Practitioner. My nursing career has been mainly in the world of OB/GYN, having first been a Labor and Delivery nurse and now working in an obstetric office seeing pregnant and post-partum patients. I created Healthy and Wellthy because I have always had a passion both in my career and in my personal life for wellness. But wellness isn’t always as simple and fluffy as the quote at the top of the page, and so often it is difficult to take the advice we hear and read and apply it, day in and day out. I want to bridge the gap between those recommendations and real life.
My goal is to use my background in women’s health and family practice to bring you real information, while entertaining you with my personal experiences and thoughts (and to be honest, a little snark) during my own journey toward a healthy and wellthy life. My posts include information on all of the different dimensions of wellness (check them out here), with an emphasis on physical wellness. And of course, because I have had the pleasure of spending so much of my career in the field of obstetrics, you will notice that many of my posts are specific to health and wellness during pregnancy.
I hope that you find the information in this blog useful and interesting, or at the very least entertaining.
Oh, and here’s me, selfie style
