Holistic Life Change Expert Living Powerfully Coach
She has done a lot of amazing things in nursing. Her very first job was as an Operating Room Nurse. She then worked as a Nurse Practitioner after completing her Masters in Nursing. She has also worked as an Educator, and a Hospice Nurse. Shahina says that each change brought exciting opportunities and new things to learn and grow from. Shahina has also gone through countless major transitions in her personal life. She moved to USA at the ripe old age of 25 years to pursue a Masters degree in Nursing. While in school she got married and had a child. All the while, she was working weekends on a cardiac floor. Eight years into her marriage, and two beautiful little children, later she found herself asking the question, "When in the world did my husband turn into my father?" After numerous failed attempts to rescue her emotionally and verbally abusive marriage, she decided to file for a divorce. "That was a scary time,” recollects Shahina. From there on she went through a move from Georgia to California and back. She lost the custody of her children but thankfully she was able to get them back after four long years of struggle. She suffered sudden deaths of her father and her sister. She was later jobless for about a year and a half. She was homeless, and lived in her car for a few very scary days! She also battled severe depression, and became nearly blind. Thankfully her near blindness was corrected through surgery. Needless to say, she knows change very intimately.
Shahina Says, “I have learned major life lessons through my own experience. However, my dying patients have taught me the most about what really matters in our lives. They taught me what really determines the quality of our lives. These are the issues of the heart. These deeper issues haunt us, make us cry, and keep us up at night. There are hidden gems in each major life change whether it is divorce, unemployment, health challenges, or even when facing death. My mission is to empower people, help them feel safe, help restore their dignity and sense of well-being and give them the tools to living powerfully until their last breath. Although I love working with any key life issues, working with people who have a serious illness, and working with the dying and their loved ones is my absolute passion.”
