From Trauma Nurse To Holistic Nurse Practitioner, Cynthia Ambroise Is Still Impacting Lives!
Today we’d like to introduce you to Cynthia Ambroise.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
Thank you for having me – it is a pleasure to share my story and passion, and I hope it will inspire others to do the same! My name is Cynthia, and I am a Nurse Practitioner and the CEO of Fluid Hydration & Wellness: a holistic wellness provider based in Charlotte, NC. Following a 15-year career as a health-care IT specialist, I decided to live my dream of becoming a Nurse Practitioner before launching the practice in March 2021.
As an emergency room nurse, I often wondered about the impact health and wellness education/support could have on patient recovery and ultimately reducing trips to the ER. I am amazed and humbled at how I have been able to help clients, from all walks of life, tune in to the healthiest versions of themselves and I can say with confidence that I have no plans to slow down anytime soon (but more on that later!).
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
I have always worked in the medical sphere, first as a healthcare IT specialist before taking the leap and studying to become a registered nurse (and later a Nurse Practitioner). As a wife and mom of 4, I knew this would change the routine of my day-to-day parenting responsibilities, and I found no longer being as present with my children extremely challenging. I must admit, I felt guilty at times. This made completing my studies in a timely manner a priority. Graduating in 4 years with honors made it all worth it and launching Fluid Hydration & Wellness has granted me my own working schedule, so that I can spend more quality time with the entire family.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
When launching Fluid Hydration & Wellness, I wanted to create something that distinguished me from my competitors – so I did! Practices like mine can be owned by individuals without a clinical background. However, as a Nurse Practitioner, I take pride in offering a holistic approach, delving into your medical history to come up with a customized solution for you. This means that even if your appointment is for skin tag removal, I will be inquiring about your lifestyle and assessing any chronic disease predispositions. Another unique factor is that all appointments must be booked in advance, rather than on a walk-in basis, enabling me to prepare for your session in advance to provide you the best care. In addition, to date, I have undergone all the procedures I specialize in myself. This first-hand experience means I also understand any queries or concerns you may have from a client point of view – and trust me, it makes all the difference!
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
It may sound cliché, but I believe one should identify their passion and pursue it. The goal is to find a way for your passion to earn you the life/lifestyle you desire. Educated is key! Learn your craft, become great at what you do.
As someone originally from Montreal, Canada born into an immigrant family, education has always been non-negotiable. Whether you sign up for a course or buy books off Amazon, learning is the key to maximizing your potential for success in anything. I experience this often with many of my clients, when they are informed and understand how and why a particular treatment, product, or solution is recommended to address their problem, the more likely they are to be engaged, committed, and see results.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success is waking up each day and being satisfied with my life yet having the motivation to continue to grow. My drive is fueled by being able to help people, and so opening Fluid Hydration & Wellness, seeing clients enjoy the results is a dream come true. For this level of personal success to happen, I must always put my best foot forward and strive for greatness – not just in my career or relationships, but in every aspect of my life.
What’s next for you?
Excitingly, Fluid Hydration & Wellness will soon be moving to a larger space to accommodate the ever-growing demand. This will allow me to hire more clinicians and expand the number of services offered. I really do believe in the Fluid Hydration & Wellness brand and its philosophy, with high hopes to one day franchise it on an international scale!
