Addo excited to lead Eastern View Dr. Felix Addo brings two decades of experience to Eastern View High School as its new principal. Addo started as the new EVHS principal in July, replacing the retiring E.G. Bradshaw. Addo comes from Stafford County where he served as assistant principal at Stafford County and North Stafford high schools. He’s married his wife works for North Stafford - and has three children. We recently had an opportunity to sit down with Dr. Addo and discuss his vision for EVHS going forward. CT: How did you get started in education? What drew you to education? Addo: I’ve been sharing this a lot with everyone I meet. It all started with a math degree and I was an athlete. Of course I wanted to coach football and soccer. The two sides kind of married together in terms of education and coaching. I started teaching high school math in Prince William County ➤ See Addo, Page 7

BIZ BIO The People of Wellspring: Suzanne Amoruso, RD, CDE For Wellspring Health Services Dietitian Suzanne Amoruso, it’s all about helping patients take charge of their lives. “I love the saying ‘knowledge is power,’” Amoruso said. “As a dietitian, it’s a reminder that the more knowledge a patient has about their health conditions and medications, the more empowered they will be to manage their disease and have control over it.” As a member of the Wellspring team, Amoruso brings 25 years of experience in helping people understand how to make the healthy choices that can not only be life-changing, but life-saving. “It’s so rewarding to see people achieve their goals and feel better about themselves, whether it be weight loss or diabetes,” she said. “I’m glad and honored to be their educator to help them make lifestyle changes.” Amoruso has a particular interest in diabetes treatment, and is a certified diabetes educator and insulin pump trainer. “I chose the specialty of diabetes because I was interested in the endocrine system, particularly the pancreas and how insulin works in the body,” Amoruso said.  “Also, with obesity

rates continuing to grow in our country, I knew I could help a lot of people live healthier with type 2 diabetes.” A Culpeper-area resident for nearly two decades, Amoruso was attracted to Suzanne Amoruso, RD, CDE Wellspring because of the potential she sees for delivering a range of general and specialist care, all close by. “Wellspring has an amazing reputation in the Culpeper community,” Amoruso said. “We are growing rapidly and adding more specialties to make it convenient for our patients to see all their providers at one place.” And when patients see Amoruso, they are likely to walk away feeling that positive change really is possible. “I tell my patients with diabetes: ‘Don’t let diabetes control you—you can control your diabetes,’” Amoruso said. “The same thing is true of every patient I work with—I want them to know that when they have the right tools and knowledge they can live a healthy lifestyle.”
