Hey. Hi There. Hello.

I’m Yolanda Duncan, MS BSN CDCES but you can just call me Yolanda. Thank you for visiting wwwTHRIVEwithyolanda.com and for spending a little time getting to know me.


I’m a master’s prepared nurse with more than 20 years of experience. I’ve worked as a medical surgical nurse, as a nursing instructor in academia, and as a patient educator. I’m fortunate because each phase of my career has prepared and propelled me forward to the next. Currently I’m working as a Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist providing inpatient and outpatient diabetes education to individuals and groups.


I’m a busy wife and mom of three with a love of all things health and wellness. Yoga, veganism, learning, organizing, planning, literally all things self-care bring me joy! I’m also an active 25+ year member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.


Thrive YOUR Way

Merriam-Webster definition of thrive (intransitive verb) “1: to grow vigorously / 2: to gain in wealth or possessions / 3: to progress toward or realize a goal despite or because of circumstances”

Your definition and path to THRIVE is likely going to be different than mine but I can guarantee that our journey will include mind, body, and spiritual wellness.

So bookmark this page and join me as we take a journey to THRIVE. You can look forward to a variety of health and wellness tips, success celebrations, and lessons learned along the way.
