How I Chose Functional Medicine:
It's our life experiences that often lead us to our calling. Here's my story about
Marisa moved to Asheville from her home state of Maryland in 2017.
Her interest in functional medicine and holistic health stems from her own experiences in navigating the healthcare world on her own personal health journey. Struggling with an undiagnosed thyroid imbalance for several years, Marisa is passionate about the importance of open communication and knowledge when it comes to a person’s health.
Marisa’s own personal health journey has evolved over the past few years to include abstinence from alcohol. As part of this journey she has found a new appreciation for healthier food choices and mindfulness exercises.
She is an avid houseplant collector, enjoys swimming, playing tennis, running, and loves spending time in the kitchen cooking healthy meals while listening to her favorite podcasts.
