Portrait of Joann


Education: I have trained as both a Family Nurse Practitioner (Florida Atlantic University) with a minor in Gerontology, and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (State University of New York). I completed my Doctorate (Case Western Reserve University) in 2010 with a focus on mental health barriers for children in rural health communities, and and completed a Masters In Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine (University of South Florida) in 2013. I am currently pursuing a Certification in Pharmacogenomics to further enhance my personalized medicine approach to care.

Certifications: I am Board Certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner, and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner through American Nurse Credentialing Centers. I’m an active Fellow with A4M (Academy Of Anti-Aging Medicine). I am Board Certified as an Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine Clinician.

Experience: I have 26 years experience working in healthcare in many different settings both inpatient and outpatient, my patient’s range in age from 4 to 99. I have had 3 successful practices in South and Central Florida since 1999 and am pleased to announce my new location in Ashland, Oregon.

Clinical Focus: I become frustrated with the cookie cutter treatments that were being offered in today’s healthcare environment, thus my pursuit for additional more encompassing education to actually assist my people in healing. I operate under a humanistic* philosophy, which means I am able to use whichever modality best fits your needs. I incorporate a functional, integrative, and regenerative approach that includes finding, then treating “causes” rather than “conditions”. This requires very specific education and experiences, which I have attained over the past 28 years. My goals are to get a complete picture of your symptoms through various modalities, educate you, and become your partner in improved health.

You are not just a medical or psychiatric patient, you are an integrated, unique human being who may or may not have health concerns that need to be addressed. Together we can accomplish this so you can live a more comfortable, productive and peaceful existence. I look forward to working with you 🙂

*humanism; an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.

“It is far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has. 



Hello! My name is Erin Puente, and I have worked for Joann for about 7 years now. I live in Washington, but love getting to work with everyone at Ashland Integrative Care from a distance. I have 2 dogs that I love very much and keep me very busy! I love to read and explore, and will always consider Ashland one of my homes as I went to college at SOU and lived there for 6 years of my life!


I am a Certified Medical Administrative Assistant with an Associate of General Studies. I love my job, meeting new people and making sure they have the best experience possible. When I’m not working I’m usually reading a good mystery or walking my two dogs Ruby and Lily. My husband Larry and I have two grown sons, both living in Portland.

Brandi and Emma

Official Ashland Integrative Care therapy dog, Brandi was rescued from Texas through Western Australian Rescue where she was found on a construction site abandoned with her Mom her older sister and her 5 siblings. Brandi was being transported to Oregon when the van she was in was hit and totaled. Luckily, she was taken in by a kind family who was adopting one of her siblings and held in Missoula Montana for 2 days. She was then flown to Portland with Pilots and Paws a great organization that rescues dogs and we drove up to get her. She had a injured leg thus she came to work with Joann and the rest is history.

Four months after the adoption of Brandi the rescue Group rescued this baby girl from a kill shelter in Texas along with her Mom and 2 siblings. She needed a forever home and Brandi needed a 4 legged sibling, so we adopted Emmalee and she has also joined the Ashland Integrative Care team.
