Nicole Powell, Wellness Navigator

I am formally trained as a teacher and spent over a decade educating children in the public-school system.  During this time, I developed a passion for true health and wellness.  I was introduced to this truth when I witnessed Dr. Ben and his team help restore the health of my youngest daughter, who had chronic ear infections – something several other doctors weren’t able to do.  Once you see and experience this truth, you can never go back.  I couldn’t unlearn the things I witnessed.  Each step of the journey brought a hunger for learning more and stewarding my family’s health righteously.  I’m a researcher by nature, so as I studied and learned more about wellness, the teacher in me couldn’t help but share with those around me.  I’ve found that I love helping and encouraging people so they can know what it’s like to truly be well.  Working at Veritas has been at the back of my mind for many years, but I let the fear of change hold me back.  After overcoming that, I finally feel like my true passion and my ‘work’ have collided.  Veritas is allowing me to be who God made me to be, and I will be forever grateful for that.
