What’s Your Dream?
Over 2 years ago Dr. Doris Ezomo made the decision to self-finance her creation of the newest Pennsylvania licensed CNA and HHA nursing school in Pennsylvania (Diadem Institute of Nursing and Allied Health – Dinah.com) .
Her long struggle began as a poor but caring young woman freely giving love and assistance to her neighbors in the projects of Newark, New Jersey, soon after her family arrived from Nigeria. That struggle and success have become her inspiration to “pay it forward” by sharing her insights and successes for other trying to better themselves.
Early on, RTCLF advisors provided hands on execution assistance to complete the very rigorous licensing application for the PA Dept Of Education. The Dept of Ed’s process ultimately required RTCLF advisors locate and engage a specialized 3rd party PhD professional to complete the process – and successfully gain approval in the midst of a COVID hampered productivity environment if Harrisburg,
Dr. Ezomo’s drive and perseverance inspired all of us here at the Rising Tide. We’re proud to have provided her with: business planning and professional support services, web marketing strategies & delivery professionals, community outreach planning to Lehigh Valley senior services providers, general business development advice, construction and professional services assistance, and many introductions to the leaders and boards of the greater Lehigh Valley healthcare community.
As Dr. Ezomo readied for Diadem’s opening late in 2020, she discovered a regionwide shortage of available home healthcare aids (HHA). Because Diadem’s courses includes an HHA certification (along with the CNA); she made the decision to create and self-finance a new home healthcare placement agency: Spring of Joy Home Healthcare, LLC. https://springofjoyhomehealth.com/ . Spring of Joy operates downstairs in the Diadem Nursing school. The Rising Tide team remains engaged and working with Doris on her launch of this vitally needed service to the community. The region’s acute shortage of certified home healthcare aids is also a statewide problem for the nation’s 5th oldest populace.
Dr. Ezomo foresees a bright future for her schools and more importantly – for her students – to see the healthcare career “on ramp” she discovered once she’d earned her CNA years ago. She’s very appreciative of the continued support and involvement from her friends at the Rising Tide.
