A former nurse turned motivational speaker, Staten has been making people laugh and helping them find balance in their life since 1986, when she ended her career as a nurse to travel the world encouraging people to take their well being into their own hands. She holds both a Bachelor of Nursing and a Master of Public Health degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
