Jamie Genet, RN
Since I was young, I have been interested in healthcare. As soon as I was old enough, I became a candy striper which gave me a small taste of the medical field. I have always been drawn to more natural approaches to healing, maybe because growing up we didn’t go to the doctor much and relied on our bodies, and faith, to do what it was meant to do; heal and regenerate. I believe there is a place for conventional, as well as alternative medicine, as they both provide great things. If we can draw from both, amazing things can happen.
Alia Al-Alawi, RN, BSN
Drue Bailey, BSN, RN
Ever since I was a little girl, I always knew that I wanted to be a healer. I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the University of Kansas School of Nursing in 2019.
I started my nursing career in the cardiac care unit then transitioned into travel nursing where I have been in a variety of acute-care clinical settings, such as PCU, orthopedics, float pool, and oncology.
Throughout my life, I have always been passionate about an integrative and holistic approach to healing. I believe that a mind – body approach to healthcare is the proper foundation for a true healing journey.
Maritza Meza, BSN, RN
In 2019, I obtained my degree in nursing from the University of South Dakota. After graduation I moved to Washington D.C to begin my nursing career. Since this time, I have worked in Intensive Care Units with a focus on Surgical Cardiac and Thoracic specialties.
After moving to Arizona, I thought it was time for a change in my career and I wanted to explore a path that focused on healing the mind and the body which brought me to An Oasis of Healing. Ever since I started working at An Oasis of Healing, I have learned something new every day about naturally healing the body from within. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work here because it has allowed me to find a balance in life – to care for myself so I can continue caring for others.
Lindsay Kennedy, BSN, RN
I have always been interested in healthcare and have worked in various roles to gain experience. I started as a Certified Nursing Assistant, then became an Emergency Room Technician before finally becoming a Registered Nurse. I graduated with my RN BSN degree in 2020 from Wisconsin. After graduating, I moved to Arizona to start my nursing career and enjoy the great outdoors and nice weather. I began my career in the medical surgical unit, where I learned the importance of advocating for patients and taking a holistic approach to healthcare.
Motivated by a deep interest in holistic and natural medicine, I aspired to incorporate these principles into my nursing practice. From an early age, I have emphasized the importance of minimizing medication use and allowing the body to heal itself. Building on this foundation, I sought opportunities to apply my knowledge and skills in a way that aligned with my passion. Joining Oasis has been a transformative experience, allowing me to collaborate with inspiring individuals who share my commitment to holistic healthcare.
Natalie Bono, RN
In 2020, I graduated from College of the Canyons in California as a Registered Nurse. I began my career working as a nurse in Med-Surg/Telemetry Float Pool RN in a level 1 trauma at the height of the pandemic. Working in the hospital system was overwhelming at the time, especially since there was such a lack of options, alternative, natural, or otherwise, that people had for their healthcare. I felt that we were only treating symptoms and ignoring the root cause of their illness. In my next position, I gained even more experience working as an RN in Hospice and Surgical Dermatology.
In 2023, I moved to Arizona where I discovered An Oasis of Healing. I love working at Oasis because it allows me to work with people in healing not just their physical bodies but it offers methods for healing the mind and soul. In my free time I love exploring the desert and reading! I’m also a practicing Reiki Master, helping support others through energetic healing.
Cesar Latorre, RN
Originally from Colombia, South America, as the middle child of five, I grew up in a very loving family. From a very young age my grandfather had a passion for plant medicine and educated me on the benefits that nature provides for us. Grandpa always had a plant remedy for any illness in our family. After the long conflict in my home country reached our very own doorstep, I came to the US in the early 2000’s.
In late 2010, I graduated from nursing school in the largest nursing program in the State of Arizona at Gateway Community College. I have expanded my career and knowledge in nursing ever since. I have worked in oncology, critical care, kidney/ liver transplant, home health, hospice care, along with multiple travel nursing assignments in New York during COVID.
Tori Fegurgur, MA
I graduated in 2016, with my CCMA, from Pima in Colorado. I have had many opportunities to help people working in various types of medical practices from Family Medicine to Infectious Disease. Prior to this, I had the pleasure of working as a Respiratory Therapist where I was primarily in the ICU and Emergency Department.
Vanessa Pinto, BS, MS
I specialize in Health Education, Movement, and Nutritional Counseling with nearly a decade of successful experience guiding clients to restore their health and vitality. I have been working with Dr Lodi at different clinics around the globe for the past four years.
