Hello, my name is Ben, and I have been a Writer on the Caring Medical Florida Team since August 2019. As the Medical Writing Assistant, my role involves editing text, developing figures, obtaining permissions to use images, and generating additional content. I am in direct communication with the book publication team, including the author, other editors, graphic designers, marketing experts, and management. I organize newly written content and projects related to regenerative medicine, research medical terminology, and create illustrations for our published work.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Arts in English (Creative Writing focus) from Florida State University, with minors in Mathematics and Physics, respectively. My chemical studies run the gamut from Organic and Biochemistry to the Physical, Analytical and Inorganic disciplines. Though experienced in writing persuasive and technical documents, I have had a historical essay and several poems published in literary journals.
I was the Project Manager for Ehrreich Consulting, Inc., a pharmaceutical consulting firm, leading teams of scientists, professors, regulators, attorneys and clients for over 17 years. In that capacity, I assisted in and wrote about the FDA approval of many drugs, medical devices, biologics, and biotechnology. I have prepared and submitted New Drug Applications (NDAs), Investigational New Drug Applications (INDs), Pre-Market Approvals (PMAs) and 510(k) clearance documents to FDA. While dealing with assorted litigation issues, I reviewed evidence and depositions for lawsuits, and prepared expert witnesses to give testimony in court.
During the summer of 1999, I engaged in an independent study program with the Supercomputer Computational Research Institute (SCRI) at Florida State University. I was also an architect’s assistant for Reynolds, Smith & Hills, Inc. in 1995.
I was awarded a United States Marine Corps scholarship on an academic basis for the maximum four years it was available. I have traveled extensively throughout The United States and 15 European countries. My myriad other hobbies include reading, writing, drawing, cooking, tennis and fishing.
My name is Bradley and I am a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in our Fort Myers office. My first step into the healthcare field started when I was a teenager volunteering as a lifeguard and earning my “Eagle” with the Boy Scouts of America. My next steps included earning my AA degree, Patient Care Assistant Certificate (PCA), working in the hospital as an orderly, then acquiring my LPN. As an LPN, I have served my community in an emergency room, pediatric urgent care, and home health. As a medical professional, I am very proud to now serve at Caring Medical. This place has the best curative chronic pain treatments I have ever encountered and so much more. I could not be more intrigued and passionate about curative treatments that have otherwise crippled so many of my previous patients. As a part of the team, I strive to do my best to educate patients on our treatments, countless positive results, and to believe in hope for improvement.
Other than work, my passions include spending time with family, helping my church as youth pastor, exercise, and board games. There is nothing like spending time with people you love and creating a positive atmosphere every day!
Hello, I’m Cathy and I am the Clinical Manager in our Fort Myers office. I came to Caring Medical almost two decades ago with 10 years of experience in the medical field, 6 years in Natural Medicine and 4 years of active duty in the Air Force as a medic. My work is my passion so I will always give 100% to patients as well as my team members. I am known to practice what I preach so if I am talking to you about diet changes, Prolotherapy, reducing stress, or working on your spiritual journey just know that I have done those things in my personal life and seen the power of these things on healing. I would love to share my experiences and my compassion with you during your healing journey as well.
In my free time I love to cook but I rarely follow a recipe because I love to create new dishes. I have a passion for feeding my friends and family healthy but delicious meals. With my recent move to Florida my family and I have been enjoying newfound friends and venturing to all of the new areas around Florida especially all of the beautiful beaches!
Hi my name is Christi and I am a Registered Nurse here at Caring Medical in Illinois. I have double Bachelors in Psychology and Nursing. After being diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma and going through treatments, I felt a calling to become a nurse to help others. I have been working as a nurse since 2007. My career has given me the opportunity to work in many areas of healthcare. I have worked in Hospice, Alzheimer care, Oncology, Ortho/ Neuro post-surgical and as a Research Nurse for non-opioid pain control for chronic pain. My passion is to help people live healthier and improve their quality of life. I am so happy to be part of the team here at Caring Medical where the staff is truly caring and knowledgeable.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, traveling and meeting new people. My hobbies include reading, music (all kinds), movies, meditation yoga, anything Disney, and walking around our lively city. My guilty pleasure is re-fashioning clothes from thrift shops. It is so exciting to me to find something old and sew it into something completely new! My favorite is making dresses out of big shirts.
Hi my name is Cindy and I am the Radiologic Technologist/Clinical assistant here at Caring Medical in Oak Park. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from University of St. Francis, an Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiology, and am state licensed in MRI. I have 30 years of experience in the medical field in hospital and orthopedic office settings. Before Caring Medical, the previous 9 years of my work was focused in Pain Management. Seeing patients get their quality of life back is what attracted me to this field. I am excited to be a part of the knowledgeable and compassionate Caring Medical team.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking, biking, and stair climbing. I enjoy spending time at the beach, or anything outdoors with my children, family, and friends. We try to take advantage of all the city has to offer. I look forward to continuing to meet patients from all over the world, and working with this amazing team to help our patients receive the best possible care and healing.
Hello, my name is Erin and I am a Registered Nurse. I earned my nursing degree from the University of St. Francis in May of 2009. I personally believe that nursing is more than just a vocation; it is a mission, or service to others. That is why I truly appreciate the individualized approach and holistic philosophy at Caring Medical. I am very grateful to be working with such a dedicated and knowledgeable staff here. Over the years of being a part of the team, I have enjoyed witnessing the tremendous positive effects of Prolotherapy and Natural Medicine in the health and lives of numerous patients!
While I was in nursing school, I gained experience providing home healthcare to a variety of patients in their home environments. Prior to nursing school, I spent eight years in the social service field working with individuals that had developmental disabilities and psychological disorders. My experiences in working with those individuals served to enhance my fascination with healthcare and led me to pursue nursing as a career. It has been an exciting journey to work with patients from all different walks of life.
Like many of the other staff here, I am also an animal lover and I currently have three happy, yet mischievous, rescue cats. I am also a former collegiate athlete who still enjoys running, swimming and biking. I look forward to working with you and please rest assured that myself and the other staff at Caring Medical will do our very best to help you achieve your highest quality of life through optimal health. See you soon!
Hi, my name is Fontella. I am the Director of First Impressions here at Caring Medical in Oak Park. I will most likely be the first face you see when you come to our Illinois Clinic!
I worked as front desk receptionist in a Family Medicine Clinic for three years before coming to Caring Medical. I’ve met so many unique people of, all ages, different cultures, and so many walks of life throughout my time working in healthcare. This is the best part of my job. I am so inspired by all of our patients!
I grew up on the East Coast and, after graduating, I relocated to Chicago. I am always ready for a good conversation and like a good joke. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, gardening, exploring the city, traveling, and watching my daughter dance!

Hi, my name is Izzy and I am the Marketing Coordinator at Caring Medical. I have been with Caring Medical since 2016 and have learned so much about how Prolotherapy can change lives. I am proud to be part of such an amazing team dedicated to helping others through not only regenerative medicine but also through compassion and understanding. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management with an emphasis in Event Planning but have always enjoyed my time working in marketing and promotions. I look forward to spreading awareness to our community about the benefits of H3 Prolotherapy.
In my spare time, I enjoy DIY home improvements and craft projects, spending time with my husband, two boys, and dogs. Together we enjoy taking family vacations to Disney as well as back home to Missouri. We also love boating, swimming and spending time at the beach.
Hi, my name is Jessica and I am the Assistant Clinical Manager for both the Oak Park and Fort Myers clinics, so there is a chance you could see me in either location. I speak with many of our patients before they schedule their first appointment. As one of the first points of contact, I am very proud to be part of a team that treats their patients like family. Whether you are a new or returning patient, you are heard and understood when discussing your case with anyone on our team. I received my clinical training from Kaplan University and hold an Associate’s of Applied Science in Medical Assisting.
Prior to my career in healthcare, I supported my husband during his military enlistment while volunteering with military communities as well as mentoring military families. I enjoy music, cooking, reading, and being outside! During my free time, you can find me spending time with my family which is always an adventure!
Hi, my name is Joe and I am the Licensed Practical Nurse here at Caring Medical in Illinois. I am a native Chicagoan, but spent most of my adult life in Peach state, Georgia. I have been back to Chi-town for quite a while now and I love it, except for the winters. I made a big career change having entered the medical field after twenty years as a certified executive chef. I love biking at the lakefront, following the Chicago Cubs, urban gardening, and messing with my tropical fish. I am impressed with the great outcomes our Prolotherapy patients experience. After spending four years in occupational health, it is rewarding to see patients actually get better. I look forward to seeing you here at the clinic, and if you are looking for a classical French or Italian recipe, just ask me.
My name is Kristina and I am happy to be a part of the Caring Medical team as the Manager of our Fort Myers, Florida office. I have worked in a medical office for a number of years and I am also a certified phlebotomist. As the first point of contact I strive to provide the best possible service to everyone I come in communications with. One of my favorite parts about working here is getting a chance to meet interesting people from all over the world. I genuinely care about our patients and will do all I can to make sure your visit here is everything you wanted whether it be clinic related to restaurant recommendations; please don’t hesitate to ask.
In my free time you can find me spending time with my family, friends, enjoying the beaches here in sunny Florida or reading the newest romance novel!

I’m Marylou and I have rejoined the Caring Medical family as the Clinical Advisor, having previously served as clinical supervisor during her previous tenure from 1995 – 2001. I have over 20 years of nursing experience, including serving in senior leadership roles in medical clinics, long-term memory care, and assisted living facilities. Prior to re-joining Caring Medical, I was the Health and Wellness Director for Inspired Living Lewisville, a 250 resident assisted living and memory care community located in Lewisville, TX. There, I joined the organization prior to launch of the facility, and played a major role in building out the infrastructure and developing the processes and procedures to ensure a successful opening and delivery of excellent care to residents. Previous to this, I served a previous organization as a Healthcare Director, Regional Nurse Consultant, Regional Director, launching and managing the delivery of care for facilities in multiple states.

My name is Nicole and I am a Certified Holistic Fitness Practitioner and the Creative Director for our clinics. My passion for writing and food lead me down the path of co-authoring The Hauser Diet: A Fresh Look at Healthy Living, in 2007. If you have not picked up a copy of our book, you should. It explains how to apply the principles of The Hauser Diet® to find your individual Diet Type to help you maximize energy, as well as optimize your health and fitness. You can learn more about the book at www.amazon.com.
My avid interest in all things alternative, including medicine, has allowed me to put this knowledge into practice and become an instrumental writer/editor for the many publications associated with Caring Medical and Sorridi Business Consulting’s printed materials: website content, case studies, brochures, articles, and The Journal of Prolotherapy®. I also head up our video/media team to keep expanding our Prolotherapy and Natural Medicine videos and answer your questions on our Youtube channel. While you’re in the clinic, you may see me with a camera in my hands capturing shots of the great work our team is doing, and share it with you online. If you have a Prolotherapy success story you want to tell, a request for a video topic that we have not covered yet, or any specific questions on our clinic, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, playing piano, road biking, swimming, learning French, and playing with my two dogs. Maybe I’ll see you on the road! Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me and our talented staff.
Hi, I’m Rachell and I am the Executive Assistant. I do a little bit of everything related to the administrative tasks here at the clinic. It’s a busy office, and I thrive on that. I have been working in the medical field for a number of years in varying environments including hospitals and an outpatient dialysis center. The patients who I meet every day continue to motivate me in my work.
I am born and raised in the Chicago area and love talking to people about the local areas to try for food or entertainment. One of my favorites include the wonderful theater culture that Chicago has to offer with all of the Broadway shows. I’ve seen Phantom of the Opera four times if you can believe it. I’d go again anytime! I am very involved with my church family in Brookfield. They provide me with spiritual support and love that I am eternally grateful for.
Hello, my name is Sarah and I am one of the clinical team members in our Fort Myers, Florida office. I am grateful to be part of a passionate and caring team who truly makes patients the priority.

I then received my Emergency Medical Technician license after completing the courses and clinical requirements at TCC Fall of 2016. I have also worked as a certified personal trainer for about a year, which was great, but my true passion lies in alternative medicine. I believe that my background will help patients in all aspects of their care here. My ultimate goal is to become a PA and perform Prolotherapy treatments.
Outside of work, I love to be active. Primarily, I train for triathlon races because I enjoy competing, which keeps me motivated. I also dabble in running and cycling races, and am training for open water swim races. For relaxation, I enjoy fishing and boating with my family. I also enjoy spoiling and playing with my dog, Nala, and my boyfriend’s dog, Emma.

I have worked in the hospital setting as well as doctor’s offices in a wide variety of specialties, including Med/Surg, Mental Health, Oncology, and Psych. I am new to Regenerative Medicine, but I look forward to helping our patients reach their goals, helping them do all that they want to do! I love to learn new skills and new ways to be a better human being. I am excited to have learned new skills here at Caring Medical including drawing and processing PRP and assisting in sterile procedures such as bone marrow and lipoaspirate Prolotherapy. I like being able to talk to my patients and get to know them. I especially like to laugh with my patients because some of them are really funny! I look forward to working with you on your road to recovery!
At home, I enjoy spending time with my 2 boys and my future husband and 2 dogs, bird, and a rabbit! Yes, our home is busy and somewhat zoo-like! I hear there may be a goat in our future! My family and I like to relax by going to see current movies, especially Marvel and Disney – what a combination! If you want a good movie recommendation, let me know! We love to hang out at the pool and enjoy the Florida sun! We are very close with our extended family and really enjoy weekend BBQs!
Hi! My name is Susan and I am a Clinical Assistant in the Ft Myers office. Although my journey with Caring Medical has just begun, I am a believer in things happening for a reason. I truly feel God has placed me here and am optimistic to see what the future holds. I am currently in school to obtain my AS in Nursing and upon graduation in December 2019, plan to move into my role as R.N. My previous employer, a local Chiropractor, has a close relationship with the Caring Medical team and the work experience I gained there opened my eyes to a more holistic approach to healing. I am ready to grow and learn with Caring Medical as well as be an advocate for our patients in their road to better health and healing. I have over 25 years’ experience in the medical field and look forward to applying all of my knowledge and skills to serving our patients in the very best ways possible.
In my free time, I enjoy being with my daughter, spending time with friends and family, I enjoy working in the yard, as well as attending church. God has blessed me far beyond what I deserve, so I have made it my life’s mission to give back. I look forward to meeting and serving you all!

Hello, my name is Travis and I am the Brand Manager at Caring Medical. I work on a wide variety of visual projects including our website designs, medical illustrations, brochures, book designs, and more.

In my free time, I like to work on 3D game programming and music programming projects. I am a super-nerd about anything having to do with sound synthesis and our auditory experience in general. When I’m not sitting behind a computer, I enjoy badminton, running, biking, hiking…anything outdoors.
