Anitra received her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, FL and went on to receive her Masters of Science in Nursing from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Anitra has worked in a variety of specialties throughout her career. She became interested in Functional Medicine since all of the symptoms that people had somehow seemed related. Functional medicine looks at the underlying disease process and takes into account the relationship between all aspects of a person's health considering genetics, environment, and lifestyle. She appreciates working in Functional Medicine because it provides an excellent opportunity to counsel patients regarding healthy behaviors that support healthy living. Her belief is that health is not just the absence of disease, but a state of positive vitality.
