Hello! My name is Dana Thacker, and I am a freelance nurse writer. Since graduating from Cedarville University with a BSN in nursing, I have worked in a pediatric rehabilitation hospital, a Med-Surg unit, a women's pavilion, and a skilled nursing facility. Not only am I a registered nurse but also an educator. I have home-educated my children, tutored and directed Classical Conversations (an international homeschool organization), and worked diligently to inspire my patients to live their best lives. Throughout these various experiences, I have gained invaluable insights, which I hope to have the opportunity to share with you and the audience you influence.
George Santayana states, "The family is one of nature's masterpieces". I'm not sure I agree. Let me explain. My husband and I are college sweethearts, and we recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We are proud parents of four teenagers, who are a joy to our soul and a tool that sharpens us. Each has very diverse interests and personalities. We have spent numerous hours at riding lessons, basketball games, golf matches, and piano studios. In our free time, we enjoy kayaking, camping, and drinking our weight in coffee. Our family recently moved to eastern NC, where my husband pastors a church in Kinston. Throughout years of marriage and ministry, we have found "family" to take many forms. I would argue with Santayana that family is more than one of nature's masterpieces, but rather God's greatest masterpiece.
Information is power, and with power, there is change. Without knowledge, how can anyone transform their life, or for that matter, know transformation is needed? Without understanding, how can people become their best selves? My passion for health, wellness, and education has brought me to become a freelance medical writer, particularly in medical communications. As a registered nurse and nurse writer, my abilities and background allow me to inform, persuade, inspire, and motivate others.
