Our Story

After 35 years of experience as a Registered Nurse working in various capacities to include direct patient care and administrative roles, Gifty Kotey, RN, decided to follow her passion to become an entrepreneur. Her focus was to create a movement within her community that would continue to expand and evolve with time.

Two years after she developed a Virginia Board of Nursing approved nursing care service agency she discovered a hidden talent to educate. She was able connect with employees and help them understand concepts in a way that helped shape their careers and improved the outcomes of the patients she serviced. She turned that talent into an independent school which was able to provide education and career opportunities to members within the community.
