Wendy (she, her, hers) has been a Family Nurse Practitioner for over 20 years. She has worked at Methodist Hospital’s Emergency Department for most of that time. Her practice in Integrative Care started to emerge in 2010, after attending multiple conferences through Harvard’s Institute of Lifestyle Medicine. It soon became apparent that most of her Emergency Department patients could have used some degree of lifestyle modification long before she saw them. In her last couple of years with Methodist Hospital, Wendy proposed and piloted a comprehensive Wellness Program for the employees of Methodist Hospital, while attending Methodist College for a post master’s certificate in Wellness and Health Promotion.
This experience and education, along with a passion to care for the whole person, evolved into a natural partnership with Omaha Integrative Care. Wendy’s practice is based on the Integrative Care Model (which is not Alternative Healthcare); it’s an approach that addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. Treatments that are natural and less invasive are used whenever possible. Health promotion and prevention of illness are at the forefront of this patient, family, and community-centered practice. Wendy can provide primary care for you and your family, or work in collaboration with your physician (to augment the care they already provide).
