Sheila Zia, FNP-BC, is a Family Nurse Practitioner, who writes about soulful connections and their relationship to health. Believing that true health is the embodiment of Spirit, she teaches how being “sensitive” is not a weakness but a strength, that empathy is a gift enabling life’s most genuine experiences, authentic interactions and worthy relationships. Her blog, Willing Heart Wounded Healer redefines achievement by how well we live and love each day - because to live big and wide and love recklessly, is the only kind of life that really matters. Sheila holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Oregon Health Sciences University and is nationally board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner by The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). She is experienced in all aspects of primary care and women’s health.
