board certified Family Nurse Practitioner, with over 10 years of experience in the medical field

Meet Stacy

After earning her Nurse Practitioner degree from Graceland University, she joined an emergency physician group in a level 2 trauma center. Shortly after, she was offered a position with a general surgery group as a Nurse Practitioner Surgical First Assist, providing direct medical management to critically ill or injured patients.

This is when she started to see a gap in the conventional medicine model — questioning why extensive surgery was happening so frequently and why so many patients were coming in with multiple chronic diseases that were not being well-managed. Feeling as though she was a "fixer," she quickly became fascinated with preventative medicine and looking at the root cause of disease. She enrolled in the School of Applied Functional Medicine and began to look at how all the systems in the body work together and are interconnected. Understanding the underlying driver of chronic disease became her passion, and led her to opening her own functional medicine clinic — Alaya Health & Wellness. 

In her practice, she has worked with patients to reverse type 2 diabetes, improve gut function, boost the immune system, balance hormone disorders, and put autoimmune disease where it belongs — in remission.


what is functional medicine?

Functional medicine delves into the HOW and WHY of disease development, striving to reinstate well-being by tackling the UNDERLYING CAUSES unique to each individual.
I begin by examining your medical history and symptoms from a distinct perspective compared to traditional doctors. Employing the Functional Matrix, I organize your health narrative, enabling me to pinpoint crucial areas of dysfunction and imbalance that can be rectified. While conventional medicine tends to classify and label symptoms for diagnosis, aiming to match them with prescriptions or rehabilitative treatments, functional medicine takes a proactive approach by investigating upstream causes and alleviating inflammatory influences in the body. My objective is straightforward: enhance your quality of life, alleviate the burden of prescriptions, and impart knowledge on how to sustain optimal health.


Ready to embark on this journey? Fantastic! Success in any treatment plan hinges on motivation. Yet, the true enchantment lies in our collaboration. While my teaching and medical approach might not suit everyone, our partnership is key.


Functional medicine views a patient's health through the prism of inflammation. Together, we target and eliminate factors that ignite inflammation while restoring your physiological biochemistry for optimal functioning

While a functional holistic approach can benefit most diagnoses or conditions, I commonly address:

  • Circadian sleep disruptions
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • PCOS and menstrual irregularities
  • Peri-menopause
  • Mold/mycotoxin issues
  • Stress and cortisol imbalances
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Chronic constipation
  • Generalized Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insulin resistance
  • Overweight/obesity


The Functional Medicine Membership service might not align with you if:

  • Prioritizing self-care isn't a current focus
  • Time management tends to be disorganized, resulting in missed appointments
  • Electronic communication or computer usage isn't comfortable for you
  • Immediate, consistent mental health support is required
  • Expectations lean toward a solution preventing all future health issues
  • Unwillingness to improve detrimental behaviors, habits, or thought patterns affecting overall health
  • Considering functional medicine due to advice but not yet ready to alter lifestyle, diet, or habits
  • Occupation constraints preventing monthly 30-minute doctor appointments for a minimum of three months


With a background in both family practice and functional medicine, I can provide comprehensive explanations of the labs you've obtained from your primary care doctor.

Should your goals require specialized functional testing, I've partnered with amazing companies like: ZRT labs, Vibrant America, Great Plains, 3x4 Genetics, and Access Medical (to name a few). These partnerships facilitate Organic Amino Acid testing, Comprehensive Stool Evaluation, and salivary measurements of cortisol and hormones, among other tests. All these assessments are easily conducted at home, offering the convenience of FedEx and UPS shipping labels and containers.


I help to determine the precise vitamins or supplements necessary for your needs, eliminating unnecessary ones. While tailored guidance on food and lifestyle adjustments forms the core of treatment, some individuals may require temporary or long-term supplementation due to unique genetic limitations, digestion issues, or micronutrient deficiencies. In such cases, I grant access to prescription-grade supplements through my FullScript dispensary, having rigorously vetted companies with the highest purity and third-party quality certification.

Ordering through my recommended prescription service ensures discounted pricing from the MRSP. However, it's advisable to allocate approximately $200-300 for supplement costs during the initial months of recovery.


Your healthcare is a team effort, and Functional Medicine plays a different position on this “team.” My mission is to educate you on your body’s signals and help you reach your goals as an ongoing consultant. Typical results are achieved from 3-6 months of dedicated collaboration.

I require that all patients retain a primary care provider to handle ordering of important screening tests (like mammograms, colonoscopies, etc). As a consultant, I do not provide urgent/same-day care that might require immediate assistance or hospitalization. If permitted, I’ll happily communicate our findings to your PCP to provide a seamless approach to your overall healthcare.
