An Introvert’s Journey as a Nurse Practitioner With Dr. Shay Smith

On this episode of Building Her Dream Podcast, we had a fun, interesting, and impactful conversation with Dr. Shay Smith from Florida. 

Dr. Shay is a dual-certified nurse practitioner who specializes in women’s health and adult primary care. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, her Master of Science in Nursing with a concentration in Women’s Health and Adult Primary Care from Emory University, and her Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Miami.

She began her career as a nurse practitioner in public health in 2013 working in the Family Planning, STD, and Maternity clinics. Since then, she has served as an Adult Nurse Practitioner, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, and Assistant Community Health Nursing Director.

Currently, Dr. Shay is the Executive Community Health Nursing Director at a state health department and serves on several committees and boards, including the Early Learning Coalition and a non-profit mobile health clinic.

Her dream is to one day own a mobile teen clinic that will provide care to underserved teens and young adults in the community helping to reduce teenage and adolescent pregnancies and sexually transmitted infection transmission.

And that’s not all about her! She is also the owner and founder of:

  1. Muriel’s House: A publishing agency that helps aspiring authors realize their dreams of becoming profitable, published authors.
  2. DesignHer Wellness: A boutique women’s health clinic, that specializes in postpartum services, contraception counseling, and everything related to women’s sexual and reproductive health.

In our conversation, Dr. Shay Smith talked about her journey as a nurse, how she survived working crazy hours during COVID-19, and what led her to start her publishing business. If you are looking for an inspiring story that highlights the journey of a successful black woman, this podcast is the end of your search!
