My name is Philicia Branch, and I am a native of Greensboro, North Carolina. I have always had a passion for serving those who are suffering. That desire eventually led me to a career in healthcare. After graduating from James B. Dudley High School, I pursued further education at Virginia College to become a Medical Assistant. Today, I am proud to work as a Certified Medical Assistant at Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital in the Advanced Heart Failure Clinic. In addition to my full-time job, I am a part of the Moses Cone Employee Advisory Council, and I have numerous certifications, including Certified Phlebotomist, Certified Nursing Assistant, and Notary. I also serve as Secretary of the General Education Department of the Holiness Church of God Inc., Youth Choir Director, and District President of the VA & WV Education Department. Furthermore, I founded the Miracle Mt Carmel H.C.O.G. step and dance team and was one of the founding members of the Daughters of Zion Mime Ministry. Last but not least I am a member of the Royal Curtain Drama Guild. I am a firm believer that my life's purpose is to help others, and I am grateful every day for the opportunity to do so.
My platform, What's Your Hearts Desire, is based on my personal and professional experiences with people suffering from cardiovascular diseases. According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death here in the United States. In spring 2005, my father experienced a myocardial infarction, also known as a heart attack, which occurs when a blood clot blocks blood flow to the heart. After witnessing the challenges my father faced until his passing in 2018, I became determined to explore ways to enhance my heart health and prevent a similar fate. My goal is to use my platform to inspire and educate the community on how to live a heart-healthy life. I intend to inform individuals about ways to combat heart disease and how to manage it. Some people might be unaware of the assistance available to them, such as affordable medications or other resources to help them cope with the condition.
