"I'm just a girl with a stethoscope and a dream." - Portia Wofford, Director of Operations
Portia Wofford, aka Revlon, has been a nurse for over seven years with experience in long term care, geriatrics, home and public health care, and most recently wound care. She is passionate about wound care and teaching others the proper ways to care for themselves. Your Nurse Connection's (as well as her) personal mission statement is "Connecting the community and healthcare through proper education and coordination of care." The goal is to bridge the gap between healthcare professionals and the community in which they serve through education, advocacy, empowerment, and support. With certifications ranging from Alzheimer's Disease to Social Media Marketing, she is equipped to offer a variety of services including social media strategies, millennial diversity training, and quality assurance for healthcare entities. She has landed roles as a contributing writer and author, as well.
Portia also strives to bring respect, experience, and exposure to the role of the licensed practical/vocational nurse through entrepreneurship, leadership, and partnership. She aims to provide the practical or vocational nurse the confidence, knowledge, and experience to gain independence and fulfilment in his or her nursing career.
Last but certainly not least, Portia is a devoted mother to one son. She actively participates in his extracurricular activities and is the team mom of multiple sports teams, robotics, and piano. She enjoys exercising, reading and writing, and is scheduled to release her self published memoir, in early 2018. Additionally, she is a fashionista and enjoys styling her family and friends. She also models, occasionally. A little known fact? Portia has an extreme phobia of escalators.
