About Our Team
Dr. Kelley Reis
Dr. Kelley Reis is a Board-certified Naturopathic Physician, Functional Wellness Expert and a Kentucky native. She graduated from The National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and has been in practice since 2004 – successfully helping clients reach their goal of optimal wellness and vitality.
Dr. Kelley’s passion is to help patients heal through highly effective wellness programs combined with simple, self-care practices designed to create optimal health. What makes Dr Kelley’s programs so incredibly successful is that they are proven to resolve the underlying inflammation and stress that cause the breakdown of health, resulting in chronic, degenerative diseases that are so prevalent in today’s society.
Driven to truly help patients get to the root cause of their health issues, Dr. Kelley’s functional approach focuses on the WHOLE person – addressing 6 pillars of health – nutrition, mindset/stress management, hormone balance, gut health, detoxification and fitness. Another reason making her approach so unique and wildly successful is the active mentoring role she plays in all of her wellness programs.
While she does utilize nutritional supplementation in her practice, she does not just manage patient symptoms with supplements. She believes that a person CANNOT simply be “supplemented back to health” – an individualized and comprehensive approach to treat the whole person is the key!
“I believe that all physical disease has an emotional, mental and spiritual component therefore healing must take place on all of these levels. This involves a strong commitment on the part of my patient because all healing occurs from within. Utilizing a comprehensive approach based in functional medicine, full diagnostic testing, nutritional planning and common sense, I partner with my patients to educate and support them on how they can truly improve their health and their life on all levels.”

Jess Zadra is a functional nutritionist and wellness coach from Portland, OR. She has a Master’s degree in nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine and is also a certified nutritionist who is particularly passionate about functional medicine, gut health, and helping others navigate their relationship with food.
Jess stepped into the world of natural medicine after facing many of her own health challenges and discovering the deep correlation between her nutritional status and her ability to heal. Over several years she dug herself out of serious gut dysbiosis, (SIBO, parasitic infections) many food intolerances, and hormonal dysregulation with help from some incredible natural medicine practitioners and by challenging/exploring her own nutritional beliefs.
While she believes in individualized approaches and that no diet fits all, she works with people to create a foundation of health and nutrition principles for sensitive stomachs and souls to build upon. Her goal is to help clients realize that while nutrition science can be incredibly complicated, eating doesn’t have to be. Most importantly, she believes that everyone deserves to find peace within their bodies and a balance in the pursuit of health that allows us all to live our most authentic lives.
Amanda is our Wellness Concierge and Certified Clinical Thermographer. Her passion for educating others about health and wellness began with her own wellness journey many years ago. Seeking answers and looking for the root cause of her symptoms led her to functional and holistic practitioners who inspired her to make shifts in her lifestyle and diet, which became a life-changing experience. Knowing the power of treating the whole person first-hand, she’s excited to help others meet their wellness goals and learn about healing in order to live their best lives.
Before joining the Raleigh Natural Wellness team she worked as a stylist and an elementary school teacher, and picked up the hobby of photography along the way. Combining two passions of wellness and photography, she is especially enthusiastic about utilizing her skills to take infrared images of the human body as a thermographer.
Having worked in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities for 16 years, she witnessed first-hand the results of living in health and that of living in dis-ease. She also struggled to find the root cause(s) & natural solutions to her & her son’s own health issues and understands exactly what it’s like to be on a holistic health journey.
Her passion is helping people realize a better version (physically and mentally) of themselves and walking with them side-by-side, assisting them to reach their goals.
