Pres Cand Whitzell

Eufemia Whitzell, fondly called by friends as “Femy” is married, and have two children and four grandchildren. She hails from Pardo, Cebu City. Her father was a businessman engaged in the logging business and banana shipping and is constantly busy with both family and business. Femy narrated to us her life story:

“I went to St. Michael’s for my elementary education in Iligan City. In Butuan City, I attended Fr. Urios College and Lianga High School in Surigao graduating as Valedictorian of my class. I took two years of Pre-Med, switched to Nursing and graduated from the Southern Islands Hospital and passed the board. I attended and earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree from Southwestern University.

I had extensive background and skills in O.R., Recovery Room, ICU, Telemetry, Same Day Surgery, Geriatrics and Medical & Surgical.

I am a retired Nursing Supervisor and had been a nurse for 35 years. As a Retired person, I have more time to put in what is required for the position and more time to devote to the office of the president and I feel I am up to the challenge.

I attended different Leadership Conferences in Florida, New York, Las Vegas, Harrisburg, and Washington D.C

I volunteered at the Gift of Life House, Ocean City Tribute to the Philippines and Community Service Blood Pressure Screening, Outreach Program, and Comcast Day Community Service.

I have been a Vice President of our Council for the past two years which I feel has prepared me to run for the office of President of the FECGP. I know the President’s job is a difficult task, lots of headaches and stress but I feel I am up to the task and I can handle the responsibility.

Some people asked me , why do I want to run for President. My response was, I deeply care for our organization, the FECGP and also I care for all the member association under our umbrella and I care for all of you here.

I would like to ask each and everyone of you for your vote and if elected as President, I promise, I will try my very best to serve all of you and the Community. Thank you very much.”
