This week’s guest Jen Owen is an Integrative Medicine Nurse Practitioner and the owner of The Flourish Center. With nearly thirty years of experience as an herbalist, Jen decided early on to pursue a career in nursing to learn more about patient care, eventually becoming an NP. She also has an entrepreneurial spirit which led her to starting two practices in the last eight years–one in Indiana and now her current practice in Oregon.
Jen describes functional medicine as using in-depth methods to uncover the “physical roots” of health problems. While functional medicine is effective, it’s still not widely accepted, even though most integrative practices are scientifically proven. Through The Flourish Center, Jen pushes past the perceptions of functional medicine and works with her clients to identify the root of health issues so her clients can live happier and healthier lives.
Once word got out about Jen’s experience starting and selling her own practices, other NPs began to seek her advice on how to start their own successful practices. This turned out to be another business opportunity for Jen, which she transformed into a master course teaching nurses how to start their own integrative health practices.
