Dr Jess finished medical school in 2006 after graduating from the University of Louisville and began internal medicine residency thereafter. During this time, she experienced mounting anxiety, hormonal imbalances and adrenal dysfunction due to her long hours and demanding schedule. She also observed that many of her patients never improved and often became a revolving door of admissions in the hospital. In 2012, after health issues began to worsen, Dr Jess had a personal awakening. She began to realize that allopathic medicine did not have all the answers she was so earnestly seeking. Answers not just for herself, but for many of her patients as well.
Dr Jess moved to the west coast from Kentucky in early 2013. It was then that she dove into the world of Ayurveda, holistic healing, energy work, nutrigenomics, stem cells, cannabis, Gerson therapy and homeopathy. Her philosophy now embodies true health as being all encompassing of mind, body and spirit. Today Dr Jess practices as a Gerson therapy practitioner, is well versed in cannabis therapy, herbs, and nutritional IVs.
