Alissa has been a registered nurse since 2006. She spent 14 years in the emergency room and trauma services. During 2020, she made the decision to leave the reactive nature of emergency medical care and pursue her passion for integrative and natural medicine.
She worked in Riverside County for ten years as a paramedic until her first child was born. This provided the impetus to expand her medical skills and become an RN. As an RN, Emily worked in Labor and Delivery, ER, and Hospice. She learned how to care for people from birth to death. However, the stressful environment of working in the traditional medical model took its toll on her health.
