About this Episode of SAGEClinician:

reegerscpOn this episode of SAGEClinician  I have the privilege of speaking with Reeger Cortell, FNP. She is likely one of the very first NPs to podcast. Her topic is also her area of clinical expertise...weight loss surgery. On the podcast, she not only talks about issues of weight loss, but also the transformation that takes place for all her patients. Indeed podcasting itself has plenty of life lessons.

During the podcast, Reeger referenced a blog post she wrote, that is appropriate for all of us in our lives:

Seven Steps For Rocking the Boat.

  1. Get clearer about what you want and why you want it.
  2. Get clear on what you don't want.
  3. Know you will be tested (mostly by yourself)
  4. Have compassion
  5. Be willing to do the work
  6. Don't be afraid to jump ship
  7. It's all work it.

Personally...I love all of them, but how about you, which of these lessons is your favorite?


WHO is Reeger Cortell, FNP-C?

Reeger Cortell,  is the podcaster behind the WeightLossSurgeryPodcast. She is a FNP and works in Bariatric surgery in Southern Oregon.  I love how she describes herself:

Recovering public school and then art school student, world travel and restless nomad turned BSN RN (after a voice told me to “go to nursing school") wife to Adam and second mom to one daughter then first mom to another daughter who then became a WOCN, then an MSN/FNP and RNFA and diligent student of ALL things bariatric surgical care who then launched a podcast to offer a more creative way to care for bariatric patients while casting a wider net for receives that care (who is really simply interested in the transformative process of how a person makes the whole body/spirit leap into claiming their WHOLE HEARTED LIFE no matter how they define it).
