My name is Catherine Kelly Pierce and I am a Functional Medicine Nurse Practitioner in South Ogden, Utah. I have been a nurse for over 20 years. I pursued my first Master's degree in Nursing Education, because I really wanted to understand how people learn, what motivates learners, and because I love teaching I wanted to know how I could be the best at helping patients. I have taught in a few academic settings and professionally to nursing teams in corporate America. I missed direct patient care a lot and knew I wanted to make a bigger difference in my peoples lives; therefore, I pursued my second Master's degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner. This allows me to care for patients of all ages. Family nurse practitioners are able to maintain patient records, perform physical exams, order or perform diagnostic tests, prescribe medications, develop treatment plans and treat acute and chronic illnesses, conditions, and injuries that fall under primary care. With my interest in teaching and helping patients get better I chose Functional Medicine as a specialty and have been practicing in this realm for more than 3 years. I love being a functional medicine practitioner, because I get to spend time with my patients helping them overcome chronic diseases. It requires a deeper level of thought as I dive into each patient's personal history and the human body to discover the HOW and WHY disease processes occur. Traditionally medical treatments offer quick solutions to put out fires (symptoms such as anxiety), but few treatments are more effective at restoring health than looking for the root cause (for anxiety this may be chemical, stress, trauma, genetic mutations, nutritional deficiencies, hormones, etc.) and establishing healthy habits of eating, exercise, sleep, relationships and managing one’s daily stress. At Wasatch Functional Medicine we utilize the best of treatment options to restore patients back to optimal health. Health is a journey and our patients are supported in each of their unique health care goals! This is health care!
My name is Allison Bench and I am a Health and Wellness Coach and Certified Health Education Specialist. My passion lies in helping individuals find the path that works best for them in building the most functional and sustainable life. I got into the field of health and wellness after first deciding that my current path of interior design wasn't quite right for me, and second when I injured my leg while dancing. Going through recovery while simultaneously trying to figure out what I really wanted out of life gave me the opportunity to explore different areas of health, and I gravitated to the idea that taking a holistic approach to life, including the physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and social, can bring a greater sense of balance than when simply treating a body like a machine. I believe that health and wellness is not a one size fits all approach, and that a balanced life is one that evolves with the changes that life brings. In my own personal life, I find I'm happiest and most filled when I am able to be outside, when I can move regularly, often, and without fear of injury, when I can make and eat foods that feel and taste good, when I can spend time with the people that matter most in my life, especially my wonderful husband, and when I feel like the choices I make are bringing me closer to the life I want to live. That does not mean life is always perfect! Far from it! The beauty in life is that it is constantly changing, and that's why I love being a coach. Finding joy in the journey by living intentionally is the greatest way to live (but that's just my opinion)!
Hello! I’m Becky, a national board-certified health and wellness coach (NBC-HWC). Throughout my 20s and early 30s, I experienced a variety of health challenges that had me taking multiple medications that did not fully address my issues. After going from doctor to doctor, I eventually ended up working with a functional medicine practitioner. Through that experience, I learned firsthand how powerful food and lifestyle changes can be. From there, I earned my health coaching certification and have been practicing since 2017. As a coach, I’m fascinated by what helps people make sustainable changes. I believe that knowing what to do to improve one’s health is a great first step but figuring out how to develop healthy habits and implement recommendations over the long term is equally important. In addition to my coaching certification, I am also a certified yoga teacher (RYT200), certified breathwork coach, and student pursuing a master’s in clinical nutrition from Maryland University of Integrative Health. When I’m not working or studying, you can find me hiking the local trails or cooking tasty meals in my kitchen. I look forward to meeting and supporting you on your journey.
Hey there! My name is Bailee Coe, I am an advanced EMT and Medical Assistant. I enjoy helping patients get the most appropriate care for their situation and make sure to provide a positive experience. I have worked in the medical field for 6 years and since starting in functional medicine I haven't looked back. It is so important to honor our bodies in various ways and starting at the root cause is imperative to healing.
My name is Mimi Mackenzie. I came to yoga after having both my children. I was looking for something that would help me with flexibility, but mostly with self-regulation of emotions. What I found was so much more. I come from a very athletic and structured background (having gone to Olympic Trials as a swimmer in my youth). I was always goal focused and driven for results. If I needed my body to perform, I would ask it to, then deal with the effects after. Slowing down, listening to and connecting to my body was not something I was used to.
When I found yoga and meditation, all that changed. I was finally able to deeply listen. Noticing that your body speaks to you constantly, I realized that this was something I wanted to share, to be of service to others.
I am trained in evidence-based trauma-informed yoga and meditation, vinyasa, was well as yin yoga. A discipline that consists of a series of long held floor poses, targeting your deep connective tissue. I am committed to facilitating spaces that foster a sense of safety, and mind-body-breathe connection.
