Certified Nurse Practitioner
Cheryl was born and raised in Queen Creek, Arizona. She graduated from Arizona State University in 2004 with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. After practicing at Mayo Clinic Hospital for two years and working in Home Health, she went back to pursue a Masters of Science in Nursing, graduating in 2009.
Since 2009, Cheryl has been working as a Family Nurse Practitioner where her love and passion for the endocrine system continued to grow. Her focus with Naturally Balanced is to educate her patients and help create a path to healing and wellness. Looking at the whole person by balancing hormones, adrenals, and thyroid while focusing on gut health, stress reduction, and a healthy lifestyle is key. Cheryl is honored to partner with you on your journey!
"Early in my practice, I saw a void in traditional medicine as patients would come to me with ongoing complaints after costly testing and no answers. Our fast pace world has many external stressors and influences. Hormone dysfunction and adrenal dysregulation affects all ages. Proper tools are needed to maintain your body's optimal daily function, whether working with a male with low testosterone, a symptomatic menopausal woman, or a teenager with high stress or irregular cycles. The goal is LIVING instead of surviving! It is a joy to watch a person's life be transformed with the right education and resources. I would love to partner with you on your journey to wellness!"
