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.

Alia Al-Alawi, RN, BSN

IV Nurse

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.

Maritza Meza, BSN, RN

Hyperthermia Nurse

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

IV Nurse

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.

Cesar Latorre, RN

IV Nurse

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

Medical Assistant

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.

I graduated from ASU with my bachelor’s degree in Health Science. In school, I developed a significant interest in physiology in order to understand the root cause of what we call “disease”. I studied the metabolic process of cancer and completed a research project investigating alternative approaches to treatment of both epilepsy and cancer.

I am formally trained in intuitive healing techniques and have much experience in facilitating conscious breathwork, sound healing, and cranial sacral practices. My transformational psychology, and business management degrees are enhanced by my certification as a life coach as well as my clinical certification as a hypnotherapist.

Darren Scherbain, B.A.

Kinesiology Movement Specialist

Growing up in Canada, with a hockey stick in my hand, I loved to spend hours on the rink in freezing temperatures. Summers were spent working out on the farm, at camp, or getting my bike dirty. From an early age, I always felt my happiest when I was playing outside and moving around. This passion for playing and moving guided me into a degree from the University of Winnipeg in Kinesiology.

Tychele Hulett, PTA, LMT, CLT, CCST

Lymphatic Therapist

I have over twelve years’ experience working in outpatient orthopedic and oncology rehabilitation centers here in the valley. I managed the care for patients with Lymphedema and other lymphatic and vascular conditions. Since 2013, I have been a licensed massage therapist (LMT) and certified lymphatic therapist (CLT). My career started in conventional medicine with a degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. It was during this time that I became aware of therapeutic massage and the benefits of holistic medicine.

Dr. Zen Liu

Acupuncturist

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.

Your Administrative Team

I worked at a hospital in Orange County, CA for 21 years scheduling radiology procedures along with transcribing those procedure reports. My last three years with the hospital, I was asked to help organize a breast and ovarian cancer prevention program. This was the most rewarding position I held in my 21 years of healthcare. Working one-on-one with the patients to help guide them through their new lifestyle cancer prevention journey became my passion.
