About Badalian

All my life I have been fascinated with the human body. As a child, I remember learning about different parts of the body, and I was never satisfied with a simple overview of the information. I enjoyed researching how things worked to the very smallest of details. This fascination lead me to take a variety of human physiology classes in high school, and naturally, I decided to pursue a biology degree at Virginia Commonwealth University.

During the entire four years I went to college, I worked as a nursing assistant at a skilled nursing facility. I found through working as a nursing assistant that I thoroughly enjoyed caring for the elderly. Once I completed my biology degree, I started working as a chemist at an environmental lab, and after sometime, I realized that I missed working with people and helping them with their medical needs, and so I applied to nursing school. I went to Virginia Commonwealth University School of Nursing to pursue a degree in nursing.

After receiving my bachelor’s degree in nursing, I worked at a variety of different settings including an in-patient neurosurgery unit as well as an outpatient urgent and primary care clinic. I continued on with my education to become a nurse practitioner, and I graduated with a masters of nursing in family health in 2013. Since that time, I have worked in an urgent care as well as family practice, and I thoroughly enjoy what I do.

Being able to help people with their medical needs is something that brings me great joy. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter. I also love hiking, dancing, cooking, and going to the beach.a I love the beach!
