Danita Smith - Blooming Health Mobile

Are you from Saint Louis? if not, where (and why did you come to Saint Louis)?

I'm from Alton, IL

Which High School did you attend, (if you attended high school in MO)? (If not from Saint Louis, you can opt out of this question)

I came to St Louis because my siblings came over here.

Which area is the best? Why? (County (North, South, West), City, St. Charles, Chesterfield, East Saint Louis, etc...)

North county- because I live here :) Plus I think it's the middle ground for stable people. Stable meaning whatever you need it to mean. You can excel in north county in many areas as there are so many opportunities. Or you can be a slum in North county- it is accepted here. Either way, you're loved just for being a resident.

Tell me something about yourself that you would like to share.

I'm a Registered Nurse and began my nursing career as a CNA/LPN at the age of 17, just prior to graduating high school. I'm divorced with no kids and looking forward to my 40th Aries blessing this month. I'm #5 of 6 children. We are all close, born between 1967-1977

What is/are the name(s) of your business(es) and describe it/them (please provide a website and email address if possible). Why did you start it/them?

My Blooming Health Mobile is a concierge lab service here in the St Louis area. We Bring the Lab to You! Routine blood draws, drug screening and DNA Paternity test, we will come to you. At your job, in your home, at your convenience. This is an excellent service for those who are just too busy to get to a clinic and the elderly/disabled who may have many challenges with their mobility.

I started this company for the elderly and disabled. Many would like to stay updated on their healthcare and do not have the means. This is just one option I was able to navigate to bring healthcare to them. We accept most insurances including Medicare. We are in and out of their house in 10 minutes and there's no interruption in their daily routine.

I knew at the age of 9 I wanted to be a nurse and "help others". I had no idea I would become an entrepreneur. I was quiet, shy and had no idea as to how to spark a conversation. After working as a nurse in Case Management, I was able to see a new side of my patients. A side other than giving medicines and changing bandages. I was able to see what was happening once they went home. Many of our patients in the St Louis area go home to the same environment that brought them into the hospital in the first place. I needed to do more. I wanted to do more. I can't take everyone home and I can't care for them once they leave. Starting My Blooming Health is just the beginning. Preventative care is key. We are also available for corporate wellness screenings to help improve outcomes. In addition, I have a nonprofit forming that will focus more on the indigent patients of St Louis. Nursing is me. Nursing is what I know. My goal is to do what I can for our community with what I have.

What three words would describe your business(es)? (If you own more than one business please give three words to describe each business).

Privacy- Convenient- Accurate
