Alison Wensrich, PA
Alison graduated from Southlake Carroll and went to UT Austin, graduating with a BS in Nutrition. After this, she completed Physician Assistant training at Baylor College of Medicine, where she earned both her MS and PA certificate. Following her first two years working in family medicine, Alison worked for ten years in hematology oncology at Texas Oncology HEB.
Alison and her husband have two kids, a five-year-old son and almost-three-year-old daughter, who keep them pretty busy—but she enjoys finding time for exercise. An avid runner, Alison has finished two marathons and about 20 half marathons over the last ten years. She also practices yoga once a week. Alison and her family enjoy being outside together, whether it be at her son’s soccer games or on bike rides, outdoor time is a priority for them.
At the age of 20, Alison was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma and had to go through chemotherapy and radiation. She is grateful that it was a very treatable cancer, and she has now been in remission 19 years.
Alison is excited to be at Southlake Wellness Center because through her own journey to restoring physical and mental health, she has developed a passion for helping others, with a focus on prevention and overall health.
Jessica Herrera, C.H.C.
After graduating Bible college, Jessica Herrera earned her B.S./M.S. in Holistic Nutrition and has since enjoyed over a decade of professional experience in the fields of health and wellness.
A Certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Practitioner, ACE Certified Health Coach and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, and member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals and the Weston A. Price Foundation, respectively, Jessica is passionate about helping people tailor their food and lifestyle choices so they get their desired results.
While educational endeavors proved meaningful, the “school of hard knocks” ever stands as her most comprehensive and valuable educator. Having endured decades of major neurological and gastrointestinal disease and traveling an unpredictable and transformative journey learning what wholeness means – body, soul, and spirit—Jessica came to understand that a well functioning digestive tract (or gut) is foundational for overall health.
Jessica believes that nourishment from nutrient dense food is a God given asset to health, and she is excited to share her experiences and knowledge with our patients at Southlake Integrative Wellness Center.
