Meet Martha Ramos

Owner and Founder

Martha grew up in Midland and graduated from Lee High School.  She obtained her Associate Degree Nursing at Midland College and both Bachelor’s and Masters in Nursing at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock. Martha is board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and licensed by the state of Texas in Family Practice.  Her nursing experience includes Neonatal Intensive Care, Cardiology, Home Health, and School Nursing. As a Nurse Practitioner, Martha worked primarily in Family Practice as a primary care provider.  

 

  Martha began to feel frustrated to see sicker patients in such short and restricted appointment times and rarely see their health improve. She began asking herself if she was really helping her patients or just prescribing medications to help with symptoms. Over time, Martha felt like she could have a greater impact on patient’s health by practicing lifestyle and preventative medicine. These lifestyle interventions are evidenced-based and designed to address behaviors related to nutrition, physical activity, stress management, sleep, social support, and environmental exposures.

 Having been diagnosed with psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and hypothyroidism, her desire to improving health and feeling better became personal. She is passionate about empowering patients to significantly make lifestyle changes in order to improve outcomes, help manage chronic health issues, enhance overall well-being and with the goal of healing the mind, body, and spirit.

 

In her spare time, Martha enjoys spending time with her family.  She enjoys reading and always learning.
