After 3 years of bedside nursing, her heart began to grow more towards prevention, health, and wellness. Rowell became dissatisfied in how the business of healthcare was giant barrier in the care of her patients. It was about REAL CHANGE for others and helping them take those steps to make those changes. She wanted to simply be a health advocate for the nurses within her profession, her patients, and really anyone seeking a healthy change. Rowell just wanted to help them in a way that addressed the root cause.
In 2016, she received her Health Coaching Certification. Then in March of 2017 that she decided to launch her own Health Coaching and Essential Oil Business, two areas that she was extremely passionate about! She used social media and her blog to grow her entire business online. 9 months into this venture, she was able to walk away from her full-time gig as a bedside nurse and pursue her business full time!
Today, Kelsey continues to grow Yourheartismine and other business ventures that are an extension of her brand. Even as her brand has transitioned, the underlying message is that Rowell truly care about the hearts of others stating, "THEIR heart, is my heart!
