Miranda is a Wellness Coordinator with Healthy MidSouth and The Juice Plus Company.
Growing up in the South, she understands that we are in a society of overabundance of what "not to eat". Throughout her life she lived with migraines, sinus infections, a lot of over the counter medications, doctor visits and prescriptions. Later in life she was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Raynaud's Syndrome. Then about eight years ago, while going through menopause, she lost half her hair, developed major debilitating pain in her joints and endured major loss of muscle mass. She became very lethargic and weak. After two and half years of testing, Miranda was finally diagnosed with RA and Lupus. In the past 5 years, she has highly improving these severe health issues while getting off eight medications.
Because of this inspiring journey, she began to tell her story of healing and prevention. Her mission is to share hope by educating you with simple steps that could change your life.
Her motto is "It's never too late to start getting healthy!"
“Mary Lou, knows what to do” is something constantly said by families about Mary Lou. As the oldest and only daughter of aging parents who live a far distance from her, the reality of getting care is personal, tangible and familiar. She works tirelessly to provide genuine care to soothe concerns of elders when they realize help is needed beyond their circle of close family and friends. The caregivers she hires are held to high standards; each is mature, kind, and engaging.
Mary Lou began providing client care over 15 years ago at a 500 bed community hospital where she was the recipient of the “Friend of Nursing Award”. As the managing partner of Mid South Home Helpers: In-Home Care for over 7 years, she has become an expert in navigating the family care journey. Seeing a need, she initiated an innovative program to save seniors thousands during the deductible/elimination period of Long Term Care Insurance policies.
Drawing upon her 25+ years of human resources, employee relations, recruiting and retention experience, her formal education at Cornell University, past Senior Professional designation with the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM), BA from Muhlenburg College and years of senior management experience, Mary Lou continues to be successful at keeping operations running smoothly.
