Shelly started her medical career working in a nursing home setting, however, spent much of her career working in the ER. This experience as an RN exposed her to almost every imaginable health situation. Upon receiving her Masters in Nursing she spent a few additional years in the ER.

  • I came to Shelly feeling stressed, tired, my body was hurting, and could no longer find that extra gear when I needed it.  Above all i was frustrated because i didn't know why.  Shelly sat me down for a consultation using a truly holistic approach.  She made me feel so comfortable and took as much time as needed to fully understand how i was feeling. Together we identified probable root causes and created a health plan based on my specific needs.  Shelly helped me make changes to my diet, we added supplements, and she taught me to listen to my body so I could make adjustments along the way.  I now feel better than I have in years!   Thanks Shelly!

  • I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease, and had no idea what it was or what to do to  begin healing my body. Shelly put me at ease immediately. I was so impressed with how thorough her initial consultation was. We went back to my childhood and worked our way up to today. We've modified my diet to gluten free options, added supplements, and I can honestly say I have more energy than I thought was possible. I never knew how sick I really was until I start feeling good… now I’m the energizer bunny! She has helped me turn a frightening diagnosis in an exciting and optimistic turning point in my life. I am so grateful to have Shelly in my corner.
