Jessie Russell – Founder, Nursing Director

Jessie Russell, a native of Mississippi, embarked on her nursing career with a strong educational foundation, having completed her undergraduate degree at Ole Miss and obtained a Bachelor of Nursing Degree from Mississippi College. Fresh out of nursing school, Jessie’s talent was quickly recognized, leading to swift recruitment following her externship.

Her initial professional journey took her to the Pediatric Emergency Department at the University of Mississippi’s Level I Trauma Center, where she played a pivotal role in modernizing the charting system. Transitioning from outdated paper charting to Epic’s computer charting system showcased her adaptability and commitment to advancing healthcare technologies.

Not only did Jessie excel in clinical responsibilities, but she also became a community leader. Her passion for making a difference extended beyond the hospital walls. Jessie, along with fellow leaders, initiated a unique program for teens convicted of driving offenses. This innovative community program involved staging mock trauma events, which provided an impactful learning experience.

Eager to enhance her skills and broaden her expertise, Jessie dedicated two years to certifications in trauma transportation, TNCC (Trauma Nursing Core Course), ENPC (Emergency Nursing Pediatric Course), PALS (Pediatric Advance Life Support), and CPEN (Certified Pediatric Emergency Nurse). These certifications not only solidified her as a proficient nurse but also laid the foundation for her leadership role in the unit.

Taking her commitment to excellence on the road, Jessie embraced the life of a Level I Trauma Center Traveling Nurse, specializing in Pediatrics. Over the course of eight dynamic years, she undertook contracts in nine different states, leaving an indelible mark in each healthcare community she touched.

As the chapter of travel nursing drew to a close, Jessie’s career took an exciting turn towards infusion therapy, marking a profound shift towards a wellness-oriented approach to healthcare. Settling in Colorado, Jessie found herself drawn to the burgeoning health and wellness field, recognizing a unique opportunity to fill a gap in the Denver area for mobile IV therapy.

Her entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to holistic well-being led her to embark on a transformative project—refurbishing a 1975 Airstream to create a mobile IV therapy unit (this mobile unit is still active today). Jessie’s vision was to bring health services directly to the community, making wellness accessible and convenient.

The wheels were set in motion, and soon, the iconic Airstream became a symbol of health on wheels, rolling out to serve the Denver community with mobile IV therapy. The positive response and growing demand paved the way for a new milestone in Jessie’s journey—a brick-and-mortar location in Littleton, CO. This lounge set the stage for continued expansion.

Driven by her passion and the community’s embrace of her wellness initiatives, Jessie expanded her venture, opening several more locations in the greater Denver area as well as franchising out of state. Each brick-and-mortar location became a hub for health enthusiasts seeking the benefits of IV therapy in a welcoming and professional setting.

In the dynamic world of owning, operating, and growing a small business, Jessie has faced challenges that tested her limits. Yet, amidst the demands of entrepreneurship, she skillfully navigates the delicate balance of being a devoted mother to her young twin boys. Amid the hustle and bustle of running multiple locations and steering her business towards new heights, Jessie prioritizes being present for her twin boys. Their names adorning the company’s brand as a testament to the intertwining of her professional and personal worlds. The boys serve as a constant reminder of the purpose and motivation behind her entrepreneurial journey—creating a legacy of wellness and success.
