NURSE - ENTREPRENEUR - AUTHOR - SPEAKER
"I believe the nurse's compassion and unparalleled ability to serve, paired with utilizing critical thinking, innovative ideas, and leadership skills, puts nurses in a unique position in healthcare, as well as our evolving society. I welcome a nontraditional approach to serving others and embrace entrepreneurship as a nurse. This unique path of serving allows me to avail myself to the opportunity to be creative and still operate within the nursing profession. I enjoy connecting with the hearts and minds of those desiring to step outside of their comfort zone and live their best life, making their own impact and serving others through their gifts, skills, and knowledge."
Santisha helps transition individuals from stagnation to operating as the best version of themselves inside out. Her life's work is empowering those she interacts with to intentionally achieve their life's goals, succeed in their health, and live an overall well life; therefore, she offers practical guidance and reliable resources to help them along their journey. Santisha has inspired and encouraged individuals from all walks of life. As a nurse she has experience in cardiac, neurology, long-term care, rehabilitation, assisted living, home care, community health, management level nursing, and now serves as a nurse entrepreneur. 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 to fruition, in 2016 Santisha founded Walker Group Health & Wellness, a consulting company providing health and wellness guidance and education to groups, companies, and the community. Santisha holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration, an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Nursing, a Master of Science Degree in Nursing Administration, and is Certified as a Wellness Coach. Santisha's trusted experience and authentic passion for others to succeed in their health and wellness has allowed her to connect with those wanting to thrive in their personal life and operate beyond their comfort zone. Her working healthcare knowledge, nursing skills, and enthusiasm for living a healthy and well life has led to speaking engagements, television and radio appearances, features as a guest on national and international podcasts, and community health award nominations. Santisha believes in giving back and also serves others 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 an e-book offering lifestyle balance resources that have assisted along her entrepreneurial journey entitled, "Your 30-Day Guide To Balanced Living As You Build Your Nursing 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. When Santisha is not dedicating her time to serving as a healthcare professional, she enjoys spending quality time, including traveling, with her husband of 15 years, spending time with family and her close sister-friends, and indulging in intentional self-care moments, such as massage therapy, music therapy, prayer, scripture reading, and working out.

"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."
