Tracy Dark – FNP
Tracy Dark, FNP, is a Family Nurse Practitioner with a background in internal medicine. She takes an integrative approach in her practice. Tracy has done extensive research on Hormone and Thyroid management, including conducting multiple clinical trials for diabetic patients. One main focus of Tracy's is to prevent diabetes before the diagnosis with advanced clinical testing. Before one is diagnosed with diabetes, they enter into a state of insulin resistance, which has many stages. This deregulation in insulin can result in a variety of other health problems such as weight gain, fatigue, insomnia, hormone imbalance, depression and anxiety.
Tracy has done training through the Worldlink Medical Center under Dr Neil Rouzier for bio-identical hormone therapy and thyroid management. This is includes management of low testosterone, menopause, premenstrual disorders, and hypothyroidism. Tracy has also completed her certification through the Copernican Institute for mineral imbalance diagnosis and treatment which can be tied to almost every disease process. Tracy has done extensive research into gastrointestinal disorders, adrenal fatigue, autoimmune disease, high cholesterol, insulin resistance and many other health conditions. She takes a functional approach that includes evidenced based research with a more holistic or gentler approach.

Jenny Olson is a Master Nutrition Therapist with a love of teaching others how to use and enjoy food as a healing tool. She obtained her training with the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado, and has spent the last 15 years working and training in functional health and nutrition. Through both professional and personal experience, she practices with an intentional focus on optimizing gut health first, from which true health can be cultivated. Through her functional nutritional training with NTI, she applies an individualized approach with each person. She evaluates each patient using diet, blood work, and other diagnostic testing to design a personalized treatment plan. Her passion is to help and empower others through the healing power of nutrition.
She also believes that health also requires balance, so when Jenny is not studying nutrition or in the kitchen, she’s been known to tickle the ivories, pick up heavy things and put them down, and run up mountains. Despite these brave activities, she still scares easily!
“Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.” — Hippocrates
I have been a Medical Assistant for 9 years and love the patient interaction and hands on aspect of my job. I am a Colorado native but traded my winters for the summers and lived in Arizona for 10 years and went to MA school there. I am an avid sports fan especially of the Denver Broncos!
I appreciate spending time with my family and getting outdoors to hike, camp and explore Colorado. I also enjoy traveling to different places and creating new adventures.
