Prior to Holmes, Belk was a nurse in the Critical Care Unit at Baptist in Columbus. She also served as an RN for Internal Medicine at Meridian Medical Associates for a year. Belk obtained her Bachelor of Nursing from University of Mississippi Medical Center after completing her Associate of Arts degree in pre-nursing from the Holmes Goodman Campus.
