Medical Small Group Mentor - Naomi Deroslard

I am Naomi Deroslard. I've been a Licensed Practical Nurse for 9 years. I have learned so much about how we are all the same when it comes to our healthcare needs. Everyone wants to be healed, whole and respected.

I've been an enthusiastic nurse in specialty health, in the area of OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Home Health and Internal Medicine. 

Nursing is a diverse and rewarding career path. A few attributes of a nurse are nurturing, guidance and healing. We are able to help individuals in areas of their life and wellbeing, that can't be done alone; likewise with Nourishing Hands, Inc. 
Joining their team is an opportunity to fulfill my passion for seeing youth flourish by providing guidance on how to make healthy spiritual, financial, educational and emotional decisions.
