Pamela Sharpe, FNP-BC

Integrative Medicine Provider
Pamela Sharpe, FNP-BC, specializes in integrative and lifestyle medicine. She believes every person can obtain notable benefits with the implementation of Lifestyle Medicine which utilizes a whole food plant-based eating pattern, physical activity, sleep for restoration, management of stress, positive social connections, and avoidance of toxic substances as an evidence-based therapeutic modality.

Food as Medicine
Her journey started with food, trained as a chef. She wanted to create higher-quality nutritional meals for her family and friends, some of whom were affected adversely by chronic health and lifestyle-related conditions. Seeking to gain an even greater understanding, she went on to receive her Bachelor’s in in Food and Nutrition with Pre-Med and Chemistry. This helped to provide a greater understanding of advanced nutrition, biochemistry, and human metabolism as related to wellness, diseases, and chronic conditions. Armed with this knowledge, she went on to gain graduate-level training and experience as an ANCC Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner.

Combining Allopathic and Osteopathic Medicine
In clinical practice, she has found patients utilizing allopathic and osteopathic medicine, in combination with the use of evidence-based lifestyle medicine and integrative therapies, help patients to address or improve areas of life-related to stress, sleep, nutrition, and movement. Additionally, if applicable working with patients to eliminate intake of any health-harming substances which can lead to greater overall areas of better-quality health and wellbeing.

Good Catch Award Recipient
Most recently, Pamela was awarded the Good Catch Award. A recognition related to a patient who came in for a routine acute visit. On further examination, she discovered the patient needed immediate life-saving treatment. Pamela worked with an interdisciplinary team to help provide resources and care while getting the patient transported to obtain life-sustaining medical care and treatment. The patient survived and a major chronic condition was discovered, appropriate treatment was started, and the patient was able to thrive without many alterations in their quality of life. 

Leading Health Improvement with Lifestyle Change
Pamela is passionate about healthcare and having the opportunity to work with patients to improve their lifestyle and health. Her philosophy is that it is never too late to change and even the smallest changes can lead to lasting results. With intensive lifestyle changes, one can see significant changes in the optimization of many acute and chronic conditions. Some conditions may not be able to be reversed but implementing lifestyle and integrative medicine can help decrease pain, stress, improve sleep and mood, as well as helping patients live their lives to the fullest.

Outside of work, Pamela enjoys taking long walks in nature with family, friends, and her dog. She loves bike riding, as well as creating and cooking mostly whole-food plant-based recipes.
