Beta Zeta at - Large President Welcome Message:
I, Wendy Sergeant, have been a Sigma Nurse since I graduated from nursing school in 1996, and more active in the Beta Zeta-at Large Chapter since 2019, as Treasurer. Along the way, earning 6 degrees the latest DNP from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst 2019. My career in nursing has span multi-disciplines through med-surg, cardiology, research, primary care, and psychiatry. Including, successfully owning and practicing an integrated behavior-health primary care business (Bright Star Health) for 13 years, recently selling in 2022. Then, I rebranded and started a new business (Mind and Soul) to reflect my passion for holistic care and psychiatry. Still, I am very active in the psychiatry community working as Nurse Practitioner at the non-profit United Counseling Services in Bennington, Vermont, and as Adjunct Professor for UMass-Amherst and Norwich Universities. When at the Sigma Theta Tau Biennial Convention many years ago I was inspired by the wealth and depth of nursing experience from around the world. Truly, the mission of Sigma Theta Tau [advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service] was demonstrated at the convention. Nurses gathered to share their experiences, wisdom, and passion. It is an experience I will not forget as it strengthened my commitment to nursing and Sigma Theta Tau. “I drank the purple Kool-Aid!”I am honored to be among the elite of nursing, the brightest and most innovative forward thinkers, as your newly elected President Beta-Zeta-at-Large Chapter. We are not "just" a nursing organization. We are change agents in nursing, translating to better patient lives and communities. Our chapter has an enormous wealth of wisdom that is beyond calculation. My Vision for Beta-Zeta-at Large Chapter is for connection, active membership, and self-care. As we move into 2024, I need your help and feedback. Only with you can we make this chapter even more connected. We are Sigma Strong!
