Professional Hype Nurse

One of her passions is empowering women to fall in love with their bodies, find their purpose, and focus on their goals with intention.

As a first-generation immigrant, first child, sibling, wife, mom, nurse, auntie, friend, god mom, educator, mentor, researcher, nurse coach, and entrepreneur, she is constantly juggling one responsibility or another. Her planner is oftentimes chaotic in itself.

Not just a nurse..


Her clinical experiences on the surgical, oncology and stem cell transplant units heightened her interest in people and their stories.

Feyi received her PhD in Nursing Research from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She focused on persistence in graduating baccalaureate nursing students to provide insight into how students successfully navigate their educational programs.
