Who I Am

Pat Collins, Owner of Empowering Health Options

Education and Particulars

  • Graduated from Samford University School of Pharmacy in 1985
  • Dispensing Retail Pharmacist for over 20 years

I have been where most of you are now. I have had to manage and balance between caring for my aging parents, a spouse with a chronic health condition and my kids. It is manageable… for a while. But then things happen, issues arise and you feel like a piece of taffy, pulled from both ends as far as you can stretch. This personal experience in my life has helped me to realize the great need so many, including you, have. So, I decided to use my skill and experience as a pharmacist in the medical field with my personal experience in caretaking to create an opportunity that wasn’t being offered before.

Who You Are

You are great at your job and wonder why those skills are not helping you deal with “this.” It’s because “this” is not your area of expertise and there are emotions, feelings, stressors, time crunches, some denial and you just don’t know what to deal with first. I get it! Consider me your health project manager. Stop wasting time, energy and money on things that do not help you with practical and doable things to make life less stressful and more enjoyable for all concerned.

Empowering Health Options exists to help you uncover not just what ails you, but the opportunities for enabling you to take control of it, manage it and enjoy life despite it.

Work smarter, not harder! We have all heard that phrase. Look, you only have so much energy every day so let’s use it productively. My job is to provide you with good science based information, a doable plan of action and support while you move forward. I have been through this myself and it sucks, but it is manageable. So, are you ready to take that first step?
