Hi! My name is JoMarie and I’d like to welcome you to Momentum Weight Loss Rx!

 

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Cell & Molecular Biology and a Master of Science degree in Nursing. I started my career as an ICU nurse and now have over 15 years’ experience as an ANCC Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner in multiple practice settings within a large hospital system including:

  • Gastroenterology

  • Bariatric Surgery

  • Cardiothoracic Surgery

  • Vascular Surgery

 

I also hold a certificate in Obesity Medicine.

After treating thousands of patients with end stage disease, I have solidified my belief that we need a more proactive approach towards healthcare. Obesity is associated with more than 200 other medical conditions. By treating obesity, you reduce your risk for complications like type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, depression and several types of cancer.

Our current healthcare system poses several challenges:

  • Long wait times for healthcare appointments

  • Poor quality healthcare due to weight bias and stigma

  • Lack of access to weight loss medications due to insurance restrictions

 

This is why I’ve created Momentum Weight Loss Rx.

You can take control of your own health and I am excited to partner with you on your journey!
