Jennifer Chaplin, RN

Hi all, I'm Jenny! I currently work as an emergency department Nurse with 4 years of Nursing experience. I first found out about Bflo Hydration when I was sick with the stomach flu. I left their office without symptoms and feeling great after one of the IV cocktails! Fast forward a couple months and I'm employed here and loving it! I love working for this company and making people feel great. When I'm not at the hospital or in the office, you can find me on the slopes. Snowboarding is my favorite hobby. When there isn't snow, I love to travel. Hope to see you in the office soon!

Hello Buffalo! I have been a RN for 3 years. I completed my BSN at Daemen College, and began my nursing career in the Surgical ICU at Buffalo General. Working in a surgical setting in the Operating Room and ICU has given me a broad range of knowledge in the medical field. I am dedicated to applying this knowledge in a more holistic approach with BFLO Hydration. Healing your mind and body from the inside and preventing chronic disease is so important, especially in our current environment. I am passionate about advocating for mental health, and BFLO Hydration has so many options to supplement your health journey.

Hello everyone! My name is Meghan. I am originally from White Plains NY but moved to Buffalo 3 years ago and I dont think I’ll ever leave! I’ve been working as an RN for 3 years. I’ve worked in both the medical surgical setting and now I currently work in the ICU at Kenmore Mercy Hospital. I first became interested in BFLO hydration as a 2nd job away from the bedside, and I’m so glad I came across them. Working in healthcare especially during a pandemic has made me realize how important vitamins, nutrition and hydration are to your overall health and disease prevention. I’m excited to be a part of this team to learn more about vitamin therapy and help clients be their best self and take the steps they need to live a healthy lifestyle!While I’m not working, I enjoy taking long walks and playing with my puppy, Koda. I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in reaching your health goals.

Shanice Hines, RN

Hello Everyone! I'm Shanice. I was a phlebotomist for 8 years before I finally decided to become a RN. I started off my career in the hospital but I've spent the last 3 years as a Charge Nurse in Dialysis. When I came across the girls from BFLO Hydration at the Bills stadium and saw their holistic approach to healing I instantly knew I had to join the team. Being an advocate for integrating nature into modern medicine, it was exciting to see this company doing exactly that. For me, Nursing means to focus on individualized care and healing a person as whole promoting balance, health, and wellness to obtain a person's best self. I look forward to partnering with you all on your health journey, one drip at a time!!!
