Why Integrative Care
MEET THE TEAM
Heidi is a registered nurse who has previously worked in family practice, health coaching, IV therapy, and as a clinic manager for small clinic. She is also a board member for a chronic illness ministry named Chronic Joy. She has an intense passion for integrative care and a pure love for learning. Heidi’s passion for true integrative care began when she became a mother to children who required more than allopathic medicine could offer. This passion and love for learning allow her to grow personally and professionally while attending additional integrative conferences and gaining certifications along the way. Heidi graduated from Viterbo University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and from American College of Healthcare Sciences with an Master of Science in Health and Wellness. She is a wife and mother of three active children who enjoys all things involving nature and family. You will find her cheering on her children in their life adventures, camping in the summer, and hiking with her dog year round.
Kimosha Briggs serves as our Practice Manager bringing over 16 years of health care experience. She is a Certified Medical Assistant with over 7 years of experience in IV Therapies including multiple certifications related to IV Therapies. As our Practice Manager she plays several integral roles within Zuza’s Way Integrative Care including scheduling, billing and patient concerns. When not in clinic Kimosha enjoys spending time with her family.
Alyssa Peterson is a registered nurse with 5 years experience in hematology/oncology and bone marrow transplant. She found her way to Zuza’s way because of her hopes and dreams of a future where the knowledge and power of holistic and eastern medicine can be combined with western medicine. She is a strong believer in laughter and positive thinking in the workplace. Alyssa enjoys a good Netflix binge with her husband and cats but can also be found outside camping and exploring whenever able.
Brianna Yost is a Registered Nurse, birth and postpartum Doula, and aspiring student midwife who graduated with her Associates Degree of Nursing from Bryant & Stratton College in 2014. She spent over three years on the Transplant Unit at Froedtert Hospital, focusing on supporting patients pre- and post-solid organ transplantation. After having both of her children in the out of hospital setting, Brianna discovered a calling to birth work, obtained her Doula certificate, and enrolled in midwifery school. She is passionate about patient advocacy and care that addresses the individual as a whole person, capable of involvement in their care, with unwavering support from their care providers; a type of care that was lacking in her previous work. It was this desire that led her to Zuza’s Way.
When she’s not in clinic, you can find Brianna supporting families through their pregnancy journey, connecting with friends, bumming around town, or planning her next national park trip with her partner and two kiddos.
