Jamie Genet, RN​ – Nurse Manager

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.

Michaela Dolezal RN, BSN​

In 2016, I graduated from University of Nebraska Medical Center with my BSN. From there, I went on to work at a Long Term Acute Care Rehabilitation Hospital for 5 years. I played a vital role in helping patients with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, strokes, respiratory failure, among several other debilitating conditions/diseases recover to their full potential after such life-altering diagnoses.

Alia Al-Alawi RN, BSN

In 2016, I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my BSN. I spent my first two years as a nurse working on a Med-Surg Telemetry Unit. It was while working there that I began to research alternative ways of healing including Lifestyle Medicine and Trauma Informed Care. This led me to Costa Rica in 2020, where I spent 10 months learning about the mind, body, soul connection and its direct effect on our health. 


Rebecca Bartels

RN – Hyperthermia 

I have always had a passion for caring for people. Both my grandmas were nurses and I decided at a young age I wanted to work in healthcare.

In 2003, I became a CNA working in long term care facilities then a PCT in float pool while attending nursing school. I graduated nursing school in 2008. I specialized in critical care and cardiac ICU.

Deborah K. Julin, RN BSN

Hyperthermia Nurse

Once my three children were grown and left home, I began a new career in healthcare.  I started as a Certified Nursing Assistant but soon after enrolled in college prerequisites for the nursing program.  I completed my Associates in Nursing followed by my Bachelor of Science in Nursing, all while working full time. 

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.  

Andrea Carter


As an I-ACT certified Colon Hydrotherapist, I know the power of combining nutrition and naturopathic modalities to create an environment in the body conducive to health and healing. For six years I have been practicing colon hydrotherapy alongside many passionate practitioners and doctors.

Jennelle VanderStouw


I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2008 and was certified as a Lymphedema Therapist in 2017.  When my father was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, I sought more training in oncology massage to help ease his symptoms and improve his quality of life.  That experience totally changed the focus of my massage practice to working primarily with those either going through their cancer treatment or living with the effects after treatment, such as lymphedema.  


Dr. Zen Liu


For over 23 years, I have experience practicing as a Traditional Chinese Medical doctor in China. After graduating from Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in 1989, I worked as a TCM doctor in Yanzhou Youhao hospital for 17 years.
