Physician Assistant - Certified
Sheri Fox PA-C is a Colorado native and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology and a minor in Biochemistry, from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1993. While attending college, she worked as a certified nursing assistant caring for people with disabilities on the telemetry and coronary care units of St Anthony’s Hospital and volunteered as an Emergency Medical Technician. Certain she had found her life’s work in medicine, she went on to Emory University in Atlanta Georgia to graduate with highest honors from the School of Medicine’s Physician Assistant Program, earning a Masters in Medical Science.
She began her medical practice in rural Northern Michigan at a community health center which gave her a broad background in Family Practice. She also developed an unshakable awareness of the limitations of conventional medicine in healing chronic disease. As she worked with complicated patients struggling with significant financial and life stressors, she sought ways to identify and treat the root cause of illness which led her to the study of Functional Medicine. In 2009, she began her studies with The Institute for Functional Medicine and was in the first group of practitioners to attain certification in 2013. Sheri has also studied bio-identical hormone replacement with Neal Rouzier, MD of World Link Medical, is a certified BioTE practitioner and has continued to expand her functional medicine education by studying with Ben Lynch, ND and completing the Kalish Institute Mentorship program in 2015.
Seeking to address healing, not just of the physical body, but also of the mind and spirit, she has completed training programs in yoga, Reiki and most recently, Shamanic energy work with The Four Winds Society and Alberto Villoldo, PhD.
Certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Physician Assistants, she holds licenses in both Colorado and Michigan.
Sheri embraces the tenants of Functional Medicine. This includes a personalized systems oriented model that addresses the underlying cause of disease. She appreciates the uniqueness of each individual, their genetic make up, lifestyle choices and environment. Working in partnership with her patients, she uses advanced testing to determine the areas most likely to effect positive change and designs customized treatment programs for each patient. Her areas of interest include the micro-biome and GI testing, male and female hormones, thyroid and adrenal issues, the identification and treatment of nutrient deficiencies, chronic infections, toxicity and the over arching effects of lifestyle, stress and spirituality on creating an environment in which healing can occur.
