professional, experienced, compassionate
Hi, I'm Catherine, and I'm so happy you're here!
I have provided care for patients undergoing Bariatric Surgery for the past decade, and have been a Nurse Practitioner for almost 40 years. I completed my Doctorate in Health Care Administration and am pursuing my dream of having a web-based Bariatric Education and Support practice.
My practice is unique; I want to work with people who have had weight recurrence after Bariatric Surgery and assist folks in staying on track to try to prevent significant weight recurrence.
I want you to live your best life after surgery.
There are actions we need to take after Bariatric surgery in our everyday lives to be successful-yes, I said: "we".
I had Roux-en-Y gastric bypass almost 10 years ago, so I'm aware of the joys and challenges that Bariatric Surgery brings. I've felt-and dealt with-the struggles as well. I've been pretty successful post-surgery, even coming back from weight recurrence, by following a simple, basic plan derived from the research that encompasses self-care, self-monitoring, and following the rules that we were all taught before surgery. Those are the Bari Basics, the CORE of the Bari Lifestyle!
I want to show you this simple, safe, and proven method, full of positivity, education, support, motivation, commitment, and self-discovery. It works.
Won't you join me?
