NURSE - ENTREPRENEUR - AUTHOR - SPEAKER
"I believe that our compassion and unparalleled ability to serve, along with our creativity, innovative ideas and leadership puts us at the forefront of our ever-evolving healthcare system. I enjoy connecting with the hearts and minds of nurses desiring to lead and make their own impact within the nursing profession and healthcare industry. I embrace entrepreneurship as a nurse, and believe it's not about escaping traditional nursing, but availing ourselves to the opportunity to be creative and still operate within the nursing profession."
SANTISHA'S CORE VALUES
Santisha believes every aspect of life has a starting point and values understanding a concept's origin. The final outcome of anything is only as strong as its foundation.
Santisha believes in all things being properly aligned for maximum function. She values bringing balance to every situation life may bring, as this is the perfect representation of life's natural flow.
Santisha believes we were put on this earth to thrive. We can accomplish our heart's desires if we understand the foundation of our desires, and live a balanced life. She values witnessing everyone and everything around her thrive.
"Helping You Reach Your Goals & Live Out Your Dreams"
Santisha empowers others to achieve their goals, and desire to witness their success by offering practical guidance and reliable resources. As an experienced nurse in cardiac, neurology, long-term care, rehabilitation and home health, Santisha connects with nurses beyond the bedside and traditional clinical settings.
While operating in the clinical setting, Santisha felt compelled to provide in depth education as a healthcare professional to patients, families, and the community for the achievement of total health and wellness. In 2016, she founded Walker Group Health & Wellness, a boutique consulting company specializing in providing tailored health and wellness resources and education for groups and the community.
Santisha's Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration, Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing, Master of Science Degree in Nursing Administration, and Certification as a Wellness Coach, as well as her enthusiasm for a balanced and thriving life, has led to speaking engagements, television and radio appearances, and national and international podcast features. Santisha’s trusted experience and authentic passion for others to succeed has allowed her to empower nurses desiring to explore the various opportunities within the nursing profession.
Nurses in the local community began reaching out to Santisha to inquire how she started her company as a nurse. Sharing knowledge gained while structuring Walker Group Health & Wellness, Santisha began serving as a resource and inspiration for nurses desiring to understand the business world and build a thriving business & brand. Whether nurses aspire to remain in the traditional clinical / bedside role and build a successful business and brand "on the side", or dream of operating a business full-time, Santisha's desire is for nurses to live out their own heart’s desires while simultaneously making their mark within the nursing profession.
Due to Santisha's personal adoration for operating in total wellness, as well as understanding the underlying stress, workload and learning curve many nurses experience when launching into the business arena, she intentionally promotes a wellness lifestyle for stress reduction and balanced living for nurses.
Santisha believes in giving back and serves as Co-Founder of Temple Vitality Foundation (TVF), a non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on advocating and bringing awareness to mental illness and helping this population transition to a state of independence through healthy living. She also serves as Health Columnist and Reporter for Spectacular Magazine.
Santisha also gives back through authorship. She has an inspirational book for nurses thrusting them into realizing their dream entitled,“Stethoscope and A DREAM: A Victorious Nurse Anthology". She has written a personal guide offering balancing tools and resources that have assisted along her entrepreneurial journey entitled, "Your 30-Day Guide To Balanced Living As You Build Your Nursing Brand". Santisha has also created a branding guide, entitled "Understanding & Mastering Your Brand", and a branding program entitled, "Ready, Set, Go! Program", designed to put nurses on the path to starting their own brand.

WHAT OTHERS SAY

"I invested in a Pick My Brain session with Santisha Walker in hopes of learning how to use Social Media to boost my brand. She more than exceeded my expections! Santisha answered all of my questions in great detail and walked me through each step by sharing her computer screen. She went beyond my inquiries and provided additional information that would help me reach my goals. I love that I was able to complete the session from the comfort of my home and that even though we weren't face to face I could sense that Santisha was excited to help me. Santisha is very warm and easy to talk to as well as understand. I truly appreciate the knowledge and look forward to working with her again as I transition from a nurse to a nurse entrepreneur!"
"I really loved your chapter in Stethoscope and A DREAM. It resonated with me at the exact moment I needed it. I am a person that has literally given my life to my job and I have felt physically and mentally exhausted as you mentioned you did in your first nursing job. The burden and burn out that you discussed felt so similar to what I've been feeling. I also have been feeling that strong intuition you wrote about to make a change. I am so glad I decided to get this book from you. You've done more than you even know!"

After several of her "Pick My Brain" sessions I've developed a clearer understanding of what my brand should look like. I've even become more decisive as an entrepreneur. Her sessions have helped me develop more confidence as an Image Consultant & Stylist, as well as an aspiring Author and Inspirational Speaker. During each session, Santisha took her time and used her expertise to understand my concerns and thoroughly answer each and every one of my questions. On occasion she would even throw in a few extra nuggets for me to hold on to and think about when working on my own. I can honestly say that with Santisha on my side I've seen results I know I would not have otherwise! Her approach is very easy going yet motivating. She is thorough, reliable and very personable! One thing is for certain, I intend on using her services going forward in the future!"
