Melissa has designed an incredible mentorship program.  I would recommend her course to any nurse that is coming from an allopathic system and desperately searching for a more holistic, root cause approach to the care they provide.  

The structure, guidance and knowledge that she shares is amazing but once you add that to the treasure trove of resources provided in the practitioner toolkit, this course becomes invaluable.
Kimberly Overton, RN
I am so thankful for the opportunity to take Melissa’s Functional Medicine for Nurses course! Melissa is compassionate, full of knowledge and confidently advocates for her patients.
 Before this course, I had no knowledge of any nursing opportunities outside of allopathic medicine.
After completing her course, I felt empowered, encouraged, and excited to take a different approach to how I care for myself and others. Melissa provides the tools and support to do so.

Thank you, Melissa!

Melissa presents a terrific course on Functional Medicine for nurses. Her depth of knowledge, intelligence and passion, for this topic is evident in each and every class session.

Melissa not only offers a great course but also helps one to see the immediate need for a more health-focused versus the current disease-focused modality in healthcare.

Joanie, RN
Not only is Melissa extremely knowledgeable about functional medicine; but she also cares so deeply about helping people with these conditions.

She genuinely wants other nurses to have the knowledge and skills to be able to help clients in ways that address root issues of their symptoms.

Through this class, she is helping nurses reach our full potential to be able to help clients heal holistically. Melissa is truly incredible!

The course material was interesting and engaging. I especially love the tons of information in the form of tool-kits Melissa provided. She truly set us up for success in every way possible. I highly recommend this course!

I really enjoyed taking this introduction to functional medicine course from Melissa. Melissa is patient, organized, and experienced.
I have been recommending this course to others, it’s time we step away from Pharma controlled traditional medicine and educate ourselves.
 I plan to sign up for the monthly continuing education
Kristin Sinn, CRNA
Melissa is a great mentor. She is extremely knowledgeable but also non-intimidating and invites all questions. I grew tremendousl in my understanding of functional medicine; from barely knowing what it was to having a solid foundation. I am looking forward to how functional medicine is going to improve my health and life as well as the health and life of those around me.
Kristin Cooks, RN
Melissa's Functional Nurse Academy has every aspect I wanted to have for my functional medicine practice without me having to do the leg work, which I appreciate very much! The educational portion of the program is priceless and I am very excited about the research included that will also be updated as needed. Melissa does an excellent job explaining how the lab results connect and can be indicative of micronutrient deficiencies, sluggish detox pathways, and possible root causes such as hormonal imbalances. Her organization with the steps to setting up the business portion is also extremely easy to follow and complete quickly to get up and running! I am so grateful Melissa created this program as it is providing me with the opportunity to be my own boss to live a life of purpose as well as being financially abundant by sharing my experiences & knowledge with the world to impact others' health & wellness journeys.

This course was thorough. Lots of great information and tools to utilize when assessing individuals with chronic illness.

Melissa is so knowledgeable and does a great job of sharing it with us through this course. What’s more impressive is that she’s had to apply it to her own life. Just when we think we’ve been given all the course content, she adds bonus content. I have so much to learn, but Melissa gives step by step path to creating your own business and answers questions easily!
