Heather's vow

I have worked for others before stepping out on my own and have always found they lack certain elements. So here at Be Well, I want to provide the very best for my patients, and to do so, I have vowed:

• to hire medical professionals so you have the best, qualified care and support.

• to give individual attention & support to each and every one I see. We don't rush or overbook our specialists so you have their full and undivided attention. You are more than just a number here!  

• Actual Prescription Medication. Our medications have been approved by the FDA. They are not a "quick fix", and not all patients are candidates for certain medications.

• Nutrition and Exercise Counseling are vital for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. This is a life-long journey. No weight wellness journey is the same. Here at Be Well, we realize that there is a process and we are committed to helping and supporting your journey the whole way through.

• Affordability. We help you take the steps to healthy changes that fit your lifestyle as well as your budget.

• Medically Supervised Service- Aesthetic & weight loss goals are achieved through patient/provider collaboration with our advance trained Board Certificate Nurse Practitioners.

BSN, Registered Nurse

I am a registered nurse with a Bachelors degree in Nursing and a Masters of Science degree. I bring 26 years of Nursing experience. My background includes Surgery, Trauma-Critical Care, Hospice/Home Health, and School Nursing. I have really enjoyed meeting all of our clients here at Be Well. Being able to follow along with them and support them on their weight loss journey has been so very rewarding. When I am not working, you will find me with my camera in hand chasing wildlife, riding horses or showing my dog. But my very favorite past time of all is spending time with my wonderful husband of 16years and my 2 handsome boys.

Julie received her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from Clemson university before embarking on a 15+ year bedside nursing career in the ER, PACU, and ICU. She is thrilled to be joining the team at Be Well because she firmly believes in preventive medicine and loves rejoicing with her patients as they shatter goals and improve their general health. When not working, Julie can be found either working out or tag-teaming with her wonderful husband as they play Uber-driver to their three feral children and cheer them on embarrassingly loudly at their various sporting events.
