Jessica Whipple, RN, CCRN
I was lucky enough to be raised by a mother who was very into alternative healing methods and the diet-disease connection. Because of this I have always been fascinated by the human body and decided to go into nursing.
I got my RN license here in Phoenix and fortunately landed a new grad position in the ICU. I received my CCRN (a National Certification for Critical Care Nurses) soon after and spent the following 5 years in various ICU positions including trauma, neuro, cardiac and transplant units.
I was often discouraged by the western model of medicine but didn’t think the field of naturopathy utilized many nurses. I was elated to find An Oasis of Healing and love the mind-body-spirit approach here. The care at An Oasis of Healing is always evolving and the patients are more like family.
Outside of work I have a Mastiff and a Great Dane who I basically revolve my life around. I enjoy reading books on diet, longevity and self-improvement. I also participate in animal rights activism and take ballet for fun.
