The "Functional Medicine PA"

I am a PA.  This stands for Physician Assistant, but for me, it also stands for "Patient/Practitioner Advocate".

I created this website with a primary focus on increasing integrative/functional medicine support to colleagues, from those that are interested but haven't made the leap, to those that are fully integrated into an integrative practice.

When I'm in clinic, I become a personal investigator, helping patients find answers to their health concerns via the use of advanced laboratory testing in combination with my knowledge of treatments (i.e. supplements, herbs, how particular components in food affect health, etc).  

I currently practice functional medicine, in a practice owned by Dr. Ann Shippy.  The majority of patients that seek our services have chronic inflammatory conditions that require interventions beyond which basic nutrition modifications can provide.  If you are interested in learning more about my practice, click here for more information.   

Thank you for reading, and enjoy the content I've put together on this site!
