Meet Marissa RN, MSN, FNP-PC!

Marissa is a Family Nurse Practitioner with her Master’s Degree of Science in Nursing from the University of Michigan. A person-centered, integrative approach has always been at the heart of her care. In her pursuit to provide the most comprehensive, individualized care, Marissa has completed training and certification in functional medicine through the Integrative Nurse Coach Academy partnered with the Institute for Functional Medicine.

Prior to obtaining her Master’s Degree, Marissa worked as a registered nurse for 13 years. The majority of her nursing career was spent working in a level-one trauma center in Detroit where she received certification in Advanced Cardiovascular Life

Support, Basic Life Support, and Trauma Nurse Core Course. In addition, Marissa was able to expand her horizons as a registered nurse and live out her adventurous spirit by doing travel nursing. Through her variety of experiences, Marissa has been able to advocate and care for the person across the lifespan in

many different situations and medical conditions. One aspect she has found to be true throughout is that people just want to be heard and understood. A large component of Marissa’s passion for advocating for her patients and digging deep to find the answers stems from her own journey with an autoimmune condition. This is where functional medicine comes in.

Functional medicine is a personalized, distinctive approach to healthcare that integrates both conventional and alternative medicine to determine the root cause of the patient’s problem. It has been said that functional medicine is medicine by cause, not by symptom. Functional medicine focuses on

promoting health and optimizing wellness by getting to the root of the matter unique to that individual. This empowers people to fully understand the state of their health, equip them with knowledge, and provide them with hope.

Marissa looks forward to hearing your story and helping you along the path to

optimal wellness.
