About Sheryl Smith
I’ve been a registered nurse for almost 34 years. Most of that time has been spent providing hands on patient care.I have experience in a number of specialty areas, including gastroenterology, dialysis, medical/surgical, elementary school nursing, and labor and delivery. I’ve spent my career advocating for patients in vulnerable positions and providing education and support to patients and families. My most current role has been that of a clinical nurse coordinator for a bariatric endoscopy program, providing education, support, encouragement to patients who have opted to receive intra gastric balloon placement for weight loss. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from the University of Delaware and a Master’s degree in Education from Cambridge College. I am currently working on certification as a health coach, with the continued goal of advocating, educating and empowering people to make positive changes in their lives. [/showhide]
