Casey was born, raised and educated in the south, and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for a BA in Public Policy, a BS in Nursing, and her Masters of Science in Nursing. Her Masters Thesis was on the reversal and management of Type 2 Diabetes with a low-fat, whole foods plant based diet, and she has also achieved a plant-based nutrition certification through eCornell and the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. She is always staying abreast of the current research on how most chronic diseases can be treated or reversed with lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing multiple medications that can have untoward side effects that only treat symptoms, she wants to find and pursue treatment of the root cause of illness. (She will, however, use medication to a reasonable degree to achieve health goals so long as the individual wishes.) After spending seven years working in the Research Triangle in nursing, both at Duke Hospital and UNC Health Care, and spending three years in family medicine rotations throughout the state of North Carolina, Casey has seen the devastating effects of chronic disease and is ready to begin partnering with people to stay out of the hospital and enjoy a long and healthy life.
