My name is Michelle Witzel, and I am an Adult Geriatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (AGNP), certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). I was born and raised in Lake Havasu City, AZ. Early in my life, I felt a calling to serve others through nursing. I utilized my love for learning and my desire to help people and advanced in the nursing field from a Certified Nursing Assistant to a Licensed Practical Nurse to a Registered Nurse to an Adult Nurse Practitioner. I received my Associate’s degree in Nursing from Mohave Community College, my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing from Northern Arizona University, and my Master’s degree in Nursing from Spring Arbor University. My professional experience includes floor nurse and charge nurse at skilled nursing facilities, case manager and director of nursing for home health agencies, director of assisted living, and Certified Oncology/Chemotherapy nurse. I enjoyed bedside nursing but overall I found that my favorite nursing settings were in home health and oncology. These areas of nursing permitted one-on-one time with patients where I was able to educate them and make them the priority. This is truly the foundation for creating healthier, happier patients. There is only one thing more fulfilling than obtaining new, better, or more advanced knowledge; and that is applying it to educate, help, and heal others. I feel that being a nurse practitioner not only requires a vast knowledge base, but also the commitment and dedication for ongoing care and further education. As the owner of Century Health Care NP, I feel that I am able to combine my experience and passion to truly help people feel better!
My name is Jessica Veasy, and I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. I am an
alumnus of Maryville University of Saint Louis, graduating from my Bachelor’s of Science in
Nursing in 2008 and my Master’s of Science in Nursing in 2014. I’ve spent much of my career at
the bedside in the hospital setting with cardiology, neurology and post-anesthesia care unit
patients. After several years of caring for acutely ill patients I decided I wanted to change my
focus to helping people gain health outside of the hospital setting to hopefully prevent from
having to be admitted to the hospital. Because of this I have changed my focus to Functional
Medicine. This type of medicine allows a practitioner to get to the root cause of someone’s
ailments, therefore helping the body restore health. Outside of work I am a wife and mother
who loves to spend time with my family camping, traveling, playing outside (when it’s not 100
degrees) and watching movies. I appreciate you taking the time to read this bio and look
forward to the opportunity of working with you!
