Meet The Founders


In July 2017, Emily found herself looking at a spreadsheet filled with the names of dozens of integrative practitioners in Nashville as a result of her journey to health.  Meanwhile, Sheri and Karina, independent wellness professionals, were bonding over the need to connect with other like-minded practitioners in order to build better care teams for their clients.  They all came together one fateful afternoon and recognized that they were trying to solve the same problem: a lack of communication, connection and collaboration within the healthcare system.  Their paths aligned and Nashville Integrative Health was born.

Sheri’s goal for NIH is to create a platform that welcomes a meld of both traditional and functional medicine to the Nashville area.  Creating a community that allows for improved patient outcomes is essential in Sheri’s eyes, and she believes this network will help facilitate this process in an innovative and effective way.  As a Partner and LENS practitioner of the Nashville Tennessee Harmonized Brain Center office, Sheri uses Low Energy Neurofeedback to help people with depression, anxiety, learning disabilities and more.  After working with countless patients, Sheri began to see the value in creating a network that would help her find other functional practitioners in the area that would complement her practice in order to help her clients get better, faster.
