Jessica Santos, FNP, IFMCP

Jessica Santos has joined FMI as a certified functional medicine provider, offering telehealth visits from her home in northern California, where she and our current medical director, Dr. Holthouse practiced together for many years. She will join us in-office on a regular basis to see patients in person, as well.

Jessica received both her Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science in Nursing from the University of Arizona. She spent her first decade as a Family Nurse Practitioner working in Urgent Care, Family and Internal Medicine, as well as Pediatric practices. While working within the constraints of conventional medicine, she felt she was missing the opportunity to really make an impact in her patient’s lives.

Since finding functional medicine, her passion is helping patients recover from complex chronic disease and achieve optimal wellness through functional medicine. She is certified through The Institute for Functional Medicine as an IFMCP. She is also a member of the International Society for Environmentally-Acquired Illness, where she has expanded her scope of practice to include those who suffer from biotoxin illness, like lyme disease and mold-related illness. 

In her spare time, Jessica and her husband like to travel and take their kids to new places to explore on their mountain bikes. They recently all came to Idaho and decided that Bogus Basin was home of their new favorite mountain biking trails!
