About Dr. Schodroski
Secil Schodroski, FNP-C, DNP, is a family nurse practitioner and the founder of The Health & Wellness Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
Dr. Schodroski’s medical journey started around the age of 12. She knew someday she would become a nurse. Her great-grandparents instilled in her values, strength, and the understanding that the word “can’t” does not exist. By the time she was 17, her great-grandparent’s health was failing, and she became their primary caregiver. Her strong compassion to care for them was effortless.
She also gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy in the world as a single mother. Dr. Schodroski started junior college at 18 years old with all of her prerequisites geared toward nursing. Juggling being a waitress, a college student, and a young mother was a challenge. She thanks God for all of the family support.
Over the years, Dr. Schodroski excelled from one nursing program to another. Her degree status contents consist of CNA, LPN, RN, BSN, MSN, FNP, and DNP. Clearly the word “can’t” does not exist, as her great grandparents stated. Currently, she has 20 years of experience in the medical field and has thousands of hours in clinical, practicum, travel nursing, and internship training.
Dr. Schodroski never once dreamed of owning her own business. However, that idea changed once she found herself unhappy, not being able to provide quality care to patients, and feeling rushed in the workplace. Because of her last employer, she was compelled to pilot her career and provide quality care to patients on her own.
Dr. Schodroski is a member of the St. Louis Nurses in Advanced Practice and the Black Business and Professional Association. She is licensed in both Missouri and Illinois to practice as a family nurse practitioner. In addition, she is ACLS certified and CPR certified.
