Jessica is a board certified family nurse practitioner. Her background in nursing began as a bedside nurse in the hospital setting. Jessica became discouraged seeing her patients get more sick when they were treated with medication after medication. That was when she decided to go back to school to earn her master of science in nursing from The University Health Science Center at Houston and focused her career on the prevention and reversal of chronic diseases.
After graduating, Jessica worked for a year and a half seeing patients all ages in a family practice office under the traditional western medical model. She is thankful for the experience, but she knew there must be a better way. It was after Jessica had the opportunity to apprentice with a Functional Medicine practitioner, that she found what she was looking for. Now, Jessica sees that true healing begins in her patients when the whole person is treated—mind, body and spirit. Her passion is to help her patients find the root-cause of their condition and reverse it using natural therapies.
