Janelle Salo is a registered nurse with a strong background in home health and care transitions. She has experience in caring for patients with chronic illnesses like diabetes, heart failure, and COPD. Janelle has a passion for SCUBA diving and became a PADI Dive Instructor after earning her nursing degree. This eventually led her to work in one of the largest hyperbaric chambers in the country at Wright Patterson AFB, where she specialized in working with diabetic patients who suffered from Charcot foot disorder. Janelle created a total contact cast that helped her patients' chronic foot ulcers heal within weeks. Janelle later transitioned into case management and found her true calling in providing direct patient care. Although she has held supervisory roles, she enjoys working directly with chronically ill patients. After sustaining an injury to her lower leg, Janelle accepted a position as a care transitions nurse. Now, as a health writer, Janelle educates people about chronic disease management through better lifestyle choices by eating healthier and through simple home exercises. In her free time, Janelle enjoys practicing yoga, SCUBA diving, spending quality time with her family at the beach, and traveling.
