NURSE - ENTREPRENEUR - AUTHOR - SPEAKER
"I believe that the nurse's compassion and unparalleled ability to serve, along with the creativity, innovative ideas and leadership puts nurses 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."
"Helping You Reach Your Goals & Live Out Your Dreams"
Santisha is known for empowering those she interact with to be intentional when it comes to living a purposeful life and achieving their goals. To assist with their endeavors, she offers practical everyday guidance and reliable resources.
Although she has inspired and encouraged individuals from all walks of life, Santisha holds a special space in her heart for her nurse colleagues. Experienced in cardiac, neurology, long-term care, rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and home care, Santisha understands what it takes to operate as a nurse and proudly serves as a liaison for nurses wanting to package their knowledge and skills to share with others beyond the traditional clinical setting. Nurses have a great deal of knowledge to offer. Santisha intently connect with nurses seeking guidance on expanding their knowledge and skills into the business arena and also continuing their passion of serving others.
While working in the clinical setting, Santisha felt compelled to provide more in depth education to patients and families for the achievement of not only health, but total wellness. To bring her desire to serve in this capacity into fruition, in 2016, Santisha founded Walker Group Health & Wellness, a boutique consulting company providing health and wellness education to groups, companies, and the community.
As Walker Group Health & Wellness became more involved in the local community, nurses began reaching out to Santisha to inquire how she started her company. Sharing knowledge gained while structuring Walker Group Health & Wellness, Santisha began serving as a resource and inspiration for nurses desiring to understand the entrepreneurial arena, how to start a business, and successfully grow a brand. Whether nurses aspire to remain in the traditional clinical setting and build a successful business and brand "on the side", or dream of operating a business full-time, Santisha empower nurses to consider their God-given gift(s) and use them to live out their heart’s desires while simultaneously making their mark within the nursing profession.
Due to Santisha's personal love for leading a well lifestyle, and understanding the underlying stress, workload and learning curve many nurses experience when launching into the business arena, she intentionally promotes a wellness lifestyle centered on stress reduction and balanced living.
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 pursing a balanced and thriving life, has led to speaking engagements, television and radio appearances, and both national and international podcast features. Santisha’s trusted experience and authentic passion for others to succeed in their life's passion has allowed her to empower many wanting to explore various opportunities outside of their comfort zone.
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 transition to a state of independence through healthy living. In addition, she is a Health Columnist for Spectacular Magazine highlighting healthcare and wellness professionals helping others beyond the conventional "9-5" and traditional clinical setting in her column entitled "Serving Beyond".
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", designed to put nurses on the path to starting their own brand. Due to her understanding of what is it like to be a healthcare consumer (patient/family) and healthcare professional, Santisha has created an e-booklet, entitled "Seek Justice & Care For Your Health: An Advocacy Guide For Patients & Families", that can be conveniently taken to doctor's appointments and other healthcare settings to assist when communicating with the care team and navigating the healthcare system.

"I invested in a consultation session with Santisha Walker in hopes of learning how to use Social Media to boost my brand. She more than exceeded my expectations! 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!"

"It was a real pleasure to speak with Santisha. She listened and provided valuable feedback with several specific ways that we could approach marketing our education, support and products for people suffering from hair loss. Thank you Brandnista for providing expert advice!"
"Santisha did an excellent job teaching us how to become authors at the Act Like A Nurse, Think Like A Boss event. She provided amazing tips that we can incorporate into our everyday lives that will allow us to take a step each day towards writing our story"
"I had the opportunity to attend Santisha's "Act Like A Nurse, Think Like A Boss" session during a nursing conference. This session was truly inspiring. While I have had various career thoughts about what the next move would entail I couldn't ever seem to find a space where it all fit together. After Santisha's session I feel more confident in following my instincts and maybe even paving my own road for the career that I dream of having."
"Special thanks to Santisha for adding so much value to me, for giving me the free webinar training, and always responding so fast when I need clarity"
"I was so encouraged by your webinar material. Glad I could tune in! Thanks for the encouragement in finding my niche in nursing!"
"I'm looking forward to learning more from you on becoming an entrepreneur and creating my brand."
"I received your book! Thank you so much for sharing these lessons and stories with us your public and for your lovely message. I feel very fortunate to have met such an amazing, hard working person!"
"Very professional and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend her services. When starting a business it's almost like you're on a plane alone, its comforting to have someone like her with postive energy and knowledge to help your business reach a new level! Thanks so much for the level up!'
"I've only gotten through the first few pages of Stethoscope and A DREAM and I've been captivated by what I've read so far! Very thought provoking, especially the part where you invite your readers to reflect on their life and desires. I'm hoping for some time soon to kick my feet up and get through the rest of the book, hopefully at a beach!"
"When we at Nurse Hub Africa decided to bring in Nurse Leaders who were already making an impact and willing to mentor younger Nurses, the first person that came to mind was Santisha Walker. I had been following and watching her and I was praying should be free to take part in the masterclass and thankfully she made it so easy to access her and she agreed to be one of our facilitators.
The session was very engaging and the nurses were really grateful for it because they kept writing to request her social media handles and shared how enlightening her session was. I personally couldn't get enough of her session and I learned more to add to my personal professional growth."
"I sought out Santisha for her coaching services several months ago. Over this period, I've experienced a major shift in my brand! The results have been phenomenal! 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!"
Amazon Review: "This is my first read by this author. I purchased this book (Stethoscope and A Dream) because I wanted to familiarize myself with this book because of all the transparency. In this life sometimes all you need is to hear it from someone else to make your dream come true. After reading the acknowledgements my heart beats stronger. Unbelief is no longer in my vocabulary, anything is possible. Life is definitely a dream. After reading this amazing book, my dreams are bigger and better than before. Thanks Santisha Walker for writing such an amazing read!!! Please get your copy. You will not regret it.'"
"Powerful & unforgettable. This young lady has impacted my life in so many ways! She is very patient and enjoy what she does best - helping and educating others. I'm so proud of the person she has become and still becoming! Keep moving Santisha!"
"One of the first events for small business owners we ever produced featured Santisha Walker as a speaker, and she was definitely the rock that got us started and held us together. When you have an event and a list/group of speakers or acts, one of the main task is trying to figure out the order of the speakers or performances - yes, you want to end with a bang, but we never dismissed the value of starting off with one. First impressions are important, and that goes for events with speakers. Santisha was someone we trusted with opening our event - more important than the closer - and she did not disappoint! I believe that Santisha’s tone, speech, and relatability to the audience members as a small business owner right from the beginning went a long way to establishing the type of event we wanted to put together overall, and the audience members we committed to the event from the beginning and they loved Santisha! We are forever grateful for Santisha's time and wisdom she gave us during that event, and serves as the barometer for what we look for in a speaker."
