Meet the Outstanding Team at Second to Nature
Belva Journiette- Receptionist I have worked here about 1 1/2 years, and have had the pleasure of seeing ladies transform. They come in to our shop so sad and depressed and leave dancing out the door with their heads held high. Their shoulders are back with smiles on their faces because they have the benefits of our services at Second to Nature. In the future I hope to further share in the experience by becoming a board certified mastectomy fitter. I like my job because it is very rewarding.
Lucy Ricks, CFm I have worked at Second to Nature since 2013, and in 2014 I became a board certified mastectomy fitter. It is truly rewarding and satisfying to help women with the special work we do here. In April 2015, I took training to scan for custom breast prostheses. As a scanner I meet with qualifying patients to discuss the various options for women who have had breast surgery. One option is custom breast prostheses; if they qualify, we set up an appointment for the scans and pictures of their chest wall. This is sent to the manufacturer to be reviewed by engineers and designers then made. The customer gets to pick the skin color and it is made to fit like a puzzle piece on the chest wall. The scan takes just a few minutes and it takes about eight to twelve weeks to receive the prostheses. We then set up an appointment to fit it to the customer.
Rebecca Whitehill, CFm and Owner I have had the pleasure of fitting women who have had breast surgery with prostheses and bras since 2007. My husband and I moved to Roanoke in 2010 to open the shop. When a woman has the diagnosis of breast cancer, they do not know what to expect. I will take them through the process from beginning to end. Initially they will need post surgery garments that hold drain bulbs, then they move into regular bras and prostheses after about six weeks. The doctor will let them know when to come to our facility and get their fittings. It is a rewarding job to help women feel whole again after breast surgery.
Scott Whitehill, Office Manager and Owner My wife, Rebecca, and I moved to Roanoke from Missouri in 2010. I’m happy to say I work in the office at Second to Nature. I also take care of any mailings or shipments we send to customers. We really like it here in the Roanoke Valley. It is beautiful and the people have been great!
