“Working in the health care field for over 10 years, I have run across countless patients whose ailments were treatable with proper nutrition and exercise. My life, even as a child, has been surrounded by people who suffer from obesity and its related diseases.” -Kristen Fields
Kristen, a native of Jackson, MS, has been in health care for over 10 years. She attained a bachelor of science degree in healthcare management and later on became a registered nurse. While working at GV Sonny Montgomery VA Medical center she has served patients of all backgrounds. She is also a recipient one of the hospitals leadership awards. Kristen has been an exercise enthusiast for over 20 years gravitating to group exercise. So much so, it inspired her to become a group exercise instructor.
“Being surrounded by preventable diseases, especially those related to obesity, has moved me to want to do something about it. Speaking to patients, friends and family regularly made me understand that they don’t know. They don’t know the deadly effects of poor nutrition and sedentary behavior. I want to reach them before it’s too late and make a difference in their lives while there is still time.” -Kristen Fields
