Hello, I am Antoinette Thompson, most of my friends know me as Tonie. I have been a Nurse Practitioner for 8 years but started my career in medicine very early while on the Oklahoma City Fire Department where I spent 23 years as a firefighter, paramedic, and nurse. I continued my education and graduated from University of South Alabama with a Doctorate in Nursing. I also spent 20 years of my life as a bodybuilder obtaining my pro status in 2002 at the Team Universe in New York City. I enjoyed the transformation of the human form and developed a knowledge for the various vitamins, minerals, and aminos and what they contribute to health. I moved to Iowa in April of 2016 and love the communities and the easy way of life here…no traffic!!
I have one daughter who is involved in public health and she and I often converse about the overall health of Americans because we believe there is a better way of getting nutrients and hydration that the body needs…IV therapy! My grandson is 7 and he plays sports, as many as my daughter can get him in! In my leisure time, I stay in the gym; I believe cardio health is a great thing. I stay in the books; I believe in learning something new daily. I stay active; I believe movement is the key to youth. I am excited to partner with Marci Nystrom, Toby Smith, and Tim Evert on this great and much needed venture with the LIVE brand because I am certain this endeavor will fill a much-needed gap in healthcare.
