Shionta Phumprey, RN
Shionta Pumphrey was born in raised in southern Maryland. After countless years of playing basketball, running track, and being interested in providing care for others, she was soon accepted to Hampton University in Hampton, VA to study Nursing. While putting in several hours of studying, she worked as a student nurse at the Veterans Affair Medical center in their rehab department and also found opportunity to work as a student athletic trainer with football and women's basketball.
She graduated with a Bachelors in Science in Nursing in 2008, and soon started her career at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD as an Adult Hematology/Oncology nurse. She worked there for 3 1/2 years prior to relocating to Orlando, FL where she currently practices as a registered nurse at MD Anderson Cancer Center of Orlando Health. Aside from being a third generation nurse, she has found peace in running with Black Girls RUN! Orlando at least 3 times a week and practices yoga twice a day. Shionta refers to her life as a constant progressive journey.
Back in 2009 I moved to Florida with the weight of 220, but my heaviest was 255 to 265. I then realized that all my medical problems were due to how much I weighed and how big I was for my size. On my birthday I joined the gym and started working out on my own. I saw I was dropping weight, so I started changing my eating habits. I've drop about 115 and feel great! My asthma doesn't act up; my headache’s are gone and I feel like a new person. I started teaching Zumba in 2010 and now I'm a personal trainer. I've been there, I know how it feels, and now I just want to be able to help others change their lives.
