ASIA JAMES, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC
Asia knew at a very young age that she wanted to go into the medical field. After graduating with her Associate of Science in Nursing from Ivy Tech, Bloomington, she returned to her hometown to work in a high acuity NICU and pediatrics unit, while completing her Bachelor of Science in Nursing through Western Governor’s University. Despite her love for her role as a RN, Asia felt guided to pursue her goal of primary care to be at the forefront of medical care.
During graduate school, Asia discovered a passion for functional health. She always identified with a holistic way of practicing that focuses on identifying the root cause to correct symptoms, rather than treating the symptom solely, so functional medicine brought it all together. Asia aims to individualize care, while identifying and amplifying complete wellness for each patient. She completed her Master of Science in Nursing from Northern Kentucky University, while completing a clinical and training in functional medicine.
Asia’s motivation for pain management follows her experience with Sickle Cell Anemia. She watched her aunt endure years of pain crises due to this anemia. Yet, she saw her aunt always maintain her faith and keep a smile on her face. In her practice and studies, Asia saw regenerative medicine transform pain in this anemia along with various other conditions, allowing patients to get back to their daily routine quicker and easier.
Asia’s family is her world, and she aims to follow Proverbs 31:10-31. She fell in love with her fiancé in 2013. They’re blessed with two beautiful girls, born in 2018 and 2022. They also have a Yorkie that they rescued as a newborn in 2015. She’s also the oldest of 3, and adores her siblings, parents, and soon-to-be in-laws! Asia enjoys spending time with her family, crafting, traveling, creating house projects (mostly for her fiancé), being a dance mom, and being in nature.
Asia’s goals for her patients are to:
Build a trusting relationship through listening and honesty
Create an individualized treatment plan that identifies the root source
Support and work alongside her patients to address any health conditions
She’s proud to be a part of Integrative Health and work with her patients to create comprehensive treatment plans to achieve overall wellness!
