Hi, I am Erin Fenstermacher and I am excited to help you on your health journey. I am an Integrative Health Coach. I am originally a farmer’s daughter from Southwest, Kansas. I went to Texas Christian University and obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Biology. I then attended medical school at Creighton University School of Medicine. I completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of South Carolina. I completed a Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the Dr. Weil Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. I am also a member of the Obesity medicine association and have a board certification in Obesity medicine. I have completed Health Coach training with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and I am currently working on my yoga teacher training certificate. I have worked as a physician for over 10 years in the United States as well as New Zealand. I have volunteered in a clinic in the Peruvian Amazon and started a non-profit there called Clinica Amazonica. I retired from practicing medicine in 2020, and I now flex my coaching muscles to help people overcome obstacles to achieving optimal wellbeing. I have a special interest in working with people with mood problems, as a result of my mother’s suicide and my own life-long struggle with depression (and I have learned some pretty good tricks!) I live with my husband, son, and two step kids. We have two dogs, two birds, and a bearded dragon. I love to ski, play the piano, hike, exercise, kayak, read, learn new things, garden, travel, study nutrition and plants, and most of all help people. My goal in life is to do my best to keep people AWAY from our healthcare system.
