Dawn Cordone, RN, MSN, AGNP-C

Digital Marketing and Community Influencer

As the owner of a holistic health and wellness practice I was looking for a school that could help provide a more in-depth look into Functional Medicine. I was looking for a solid foundation and found SAFM key to maintaining a successful practice. I have been in the Medical industry for over 30 years and have a Master’s Degree in Nursing as an Adult/ Geriatric Nurse Practitioner and Certified Holistic Practitioner. Most of my work has involved doing home health assessments from new mothers to the elderly, setting up holistic health fairs, being a member on the school committee as a health & nutrition advocate, and holistic coaching.

My interest in Functional Medicine began when my father’s illness took him down a path that eventually brought him into hospice. When his last words to me were, “these pills are killing me”, I vowed to educate others in the community on maintaining health and wellness by turning their life around thru education and lifestyle changes. Doing home health assessments has shown me that there is a great need for education on nutrition, lifestyle changes, and the use of more holistic approach. My goal is to provide patients with the skills and knowledge they need to achieve optimal wellness and avoid the same path my father took.

Shay Klomp Bueters

Digital Marketing & Community Influencer

In experiencing firsthand the power of nutrition and lifestyle changes in overcoming infertility and burnout, I am keen to empower others to reclaim their wellness and vitality. The body has an incredible ability to heal! SAFM has been a game changer for me personally and professionally; healing my own asthma, as well as sharing the knowledge with the clients I have been blessed to work with and seeing them move, step by step, into a place of sustainable health.

I am truly honored to play a role in the functional medicine movement in bringing on-board more whip smart, like-minded, health focused professionals to be a part of the SAFM family! SAFM and functional medicine IS the true health care, and I am delighted to be a part of the SAFM team.

Deborah Beaumont RN, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Functional Medicine Practitioner

Digital Marketing and Community Influencer

After more than 30 years in nursing in high stress, high intensity work, I hit the wall when I faced my own serious health crisis. In addition to addressing my health, I needed to change my work, my life and my priorities.

The medical system (work and treatment) left me exhausted and looking for new meaning. Finding functional medicine and Tracy in particular was revitalizing. Not only did I start healing myself but embraced a new career focus.

I now utilize functional medicine in an integrative approach to empower women recovering from breast cancer and breast cancer treatment. In addition to breast cancer recovery I have a special focus on PTSD/trauma recovery as it relates to cancer and health.

Jodi Franklin, Functional Medicine Health Coach

Sales/Business Development Specialist and Teaching Consultant

I have been in the health and fitness industry for over 25 years. After managing and consulting for health clubs, teaching group fitness classes and owning a healthy cooking business, I decided to go back to school to study integrative nutrition and then applied functional medicine at SAFM.  I now work with clients to help them put their diseases into remission, and live vibrant, healthy lives.  With the clinical know-how that I have learned, I have built up a full practice in less than a year from graduating SAFM, all via referrals from satisfied clients and physician referrals.

Shawn Smith

Marketing Support

I was a health coach helping clients realize how brilliant their bodies are, but hungry to learn more so that I could help more profoundly. Tracy’s warmth, her depth of knowledge, the galaxy of information and well-rounded, support-filled Programs gave me what I needed. When I had an opportunity to join the Marketing team I jumped at the chance to play some small role in helping get the word out about FM and lead more practitioners to Tracy’s Programs – to go forth and do this good work!
