ST. LOUIS - Danita Smith, owner of My Blooming Health in St. Louis, and her group are definitely Difference Makers during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Danita's sister, Gigi, from the area, nominated Danita as a person to salute as a true hero during the pandemic.

"They (my sister and My Blooming Health) do mobile phlebotomy for several doctors offices and nursing homes in the St. Louis and Illinois area," Gigi Smith said. "Her group of phlebotomists are considered front-line workers because they are the only company going into patients home to do blood draws during this COVID-19 epidemic. I am her sister and I’m extremely proud of her and her team."

Danita Smith graduated from Alton High School in 1994 and the Lewis and Clark Community College nursing program in 1996. She also obtained a bachelor's degree in nursing from McKendree University in Lebanon, and a master's business administration degree from Webster University in St. Louis.
