Welcome my friends!
My name is Tiffany Mindigo. I am an Integrative Family Nurse Practitioner. I started Virtue Wellness after many years of looking for the right kind of wellness. I began my journey as a wellness seeker when I was 19, after years of feeling sick all the time and being offered prescriptions that didn't nourish my body. I really believed that if I could find a new way, I could help myself and then help others. What I really needed was a place that served all people in the middle. For me, the middle is our everyday, it's everything in between our birth and the time we leave this planet. I needed a place that truly listened to what people needed and served people where they are. I wanted to be heard and seen for who I was as a whole person, not just the pieces and parts that I presented with in an office.
I embarked on a journey to find a way to be the change. My journey led me to much personal reading and research on alternative therapies and holistic remedies. I decided to become a nurse, as it was the closest role I could find to providing holistic care. I received my B.S. in Nursing in 2012 and M.S. in Nursing in 2018, both from Mount Carmel College of Nursing. Along the way, I wanted to find more ways to help families so I became a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) and Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) in 2013. I completed my Faith Community Nurse (FCN) Curriculum, Holy Yoga Instructor Certification (C-HYI) and further expanded my Health Coaching knowledge (ACE Certified Health Coach) in 2020. I am currently enrolled to complete a Family Herbalist and HeartMath Certification. I have always worked with families in a variety of settings and I wanted skills I could take anywhere and serve in every way.
I am a mother to three brilliant and energetic girls. Being a mother is the most fulfilling role in the entire world for me. Being a parent comes with a wealth of blessings and a heavy load of challenges at times. I completely understand the unending exchange of ups and downs and all arounds. I have always used integrative medicine to care for myself and my children. I have a passion for collaborating with families to achieve a healthy balance between mind, body, soul. and home.
My experience working with families includes hospital care, home visiting, breastfeeding support groups, partnering with community groups to educate parents on healthy pregnancy and parenting outcomes, and working in a primary care office. I love helping children and families learn and grow together.
Outside of work, I am active in my faith, I enjoy spending time with my kids having dance parties, swimming, traveling and celebrating holidays. I am a continuous learner. I most enjoy reading about integrative medicine and positive psychology.
I truly hope that you will find Virtue Wellness to be a safe place for your family and a blessing on your life.
