Weema: Healthy lifestyle advocate

Opt for a healthy lifestyle.
“A healthy employee is an efficient employee.” Nurse Weema advocates a healthy lifestyle for all, regardless of rank, status, age, and gender. This is the reason why she initiates programs that encourage a healthy lifestyle. In fact in the workplace, she has initiated the Annual Medical Check-up; sustained information campaign on health trends and tips through lectures by medical specialists and experts on topics like Breast Cancer, Anti-Rabies, Heart Attack, Hypertension, Diabetes, among others; Biggest Loser campaign; Anti-smoking campaign; Vaccination program; and related activities. These are only some of the activities that she has implemented for BOHECO I management and personnel through the years that she has served the electric cooperative.
In tandem with the Human Resource Section, she will implement a comprehensive Wellness Program to encourage a healthy lifestyle among the human resource component of BOHECO I.  
It’s time to get to know Roweema Magna Amila Amodia, the Coop Nurse who started serving BOHECO I on February 9, 2004. The job was an answered prayer to her having resigned from her job in Cebu City two years earlier. Like this writer, she believes that when a job comes along without stress and hassle, it is an answered prayer.
Weema, as she is fondly called by family and friends alike, believes in doing everything from the heart. She maintains an attitude of gratitude. She is grateful for the little things and feels fulfilled when she is able to extend help.
She is married to Arnulfo Estrella Amodia, an OFW. She has three kids: two teenagers and one four-year old. Eldest is Joses Moses “Mojo”,  16 years old; Renzo Miguel “Renz”, 14 years old; and Alessandra Maria “Light”, 4 years old, the baby in the family. As a mom, she dotes to her kids. She pampers them with love, care, and attention, and yet she is a believer in discipline. Her parenting style is “Spare the rod and spoil the child.” Discipline to her is very important because her husband is working away from home.
She is the second daughter of retired Judge Venancio Amila and public servant Romelia Rojas. Her mother passed away on August 1, 2012. She has three other siblings but one just recently passed on. Their youngest brother Marlon is the local chief executive of Tubigon, Bohol.
Born on February 24, several summers ago, in the coastal town of Tubigon, Weema has lived out her profession personally. She is a nurse by profession true, but her profession has become her life vocation. She is truly a total health care provider who appreciates and sincerely renders work from the heart.
