Julie Roger, RN

Julie is a Medical Aesthetics Provider & IV Nurse who has poured her heart into the health and beauty business for her entire professional career.  Early on, she found her passion in natural therapies that support our innate healing abilities and prevent illness while slowing down the aging process.  While being a student and practicing longevity through many different alternative modalities, Julie also became a Registered Nurse. She immersed herself in holistic practices in clinical settings in Southern California where fitness, skin care, eating for beauty, IV nutrition, chelation and ozone were common practices amongst her medical colleagues prior to becoming as popular and wide-spread as they are today.

Since moving back to her home state of Colorado, she became certified in the cosmetic uses of PRP and dermal injections.  She’s a master Pilates practitioner/teacher with her own private studio, enjoys hiking with her husband, gardening and continuing her education.


Kelly Sheridan, MS.,L.AC

Kelly Sheridan is a licensed acupuncturist functional medicine practitioner. She is passionate about helping people uncover root causes for health concerns and reversing chronic illness naturally. She skillfully combines acupuncture with research-based nutrition, supplement protocols, and lifestyle strategies to help people restore health, happiness, and vitality to their lives.

When Kelly was 19, her father passed on from a struggle with an advanced brain tumor.  This event was traumatic for Kelly, her family, and the larger community touched by her father; it compelled her to dive into studying Chinese and Functional Medicine so that she could do everything in her power to help others discover and alter the path of disease processes before they become pathological problems. Kelly’s treatments focus on getting to the root of a condition and healing from that place outward; her intention is to help her clients move forward truly free from what has been holding them back in life. Kelly is particularly inspired to work with individuals who have experienced trauma and those who are committed to the process of preventing disease and reclaiming wellness in their lives.
