About The Dream Team

The Superstars Who Help Make it All Run Smoothly

Left to right:

Jan – Laser Technician and Scribe

Jan is the caring friend of the office. You will find her in the laser room treating patients or by Dr. Parson’s side documenting her patient notes and always ready to serve you with joy. As a wife, mother of seven (two of which are sons-in-law), and grandmother of six, she always looks forward to time spent with her family. And as most grandma’s do, she loves to share pictures! Some of her interests are, taking road trips, going on hikes, playing volleyball, ping pong, studying the Bible, and photography.

Dr. P - The Holistic Detective

You learned all about Dr. P at the top of the page.

Kelly - Dream Team Support

(back row) Kelly is the smiling face you see when you enter The Natural Path Health Center. She is our girl Friday when it comes to office support and helping wherever she can. Her favorite part about working here is getting to interact with the patients. When she is not here, she can be found spending time with her precious cats or watching a Dodgers game.

Kamray - Office Support

Kamray (front row) actually started out as a long time patient. Her love and willingness to help others is what makes her a great addition to the team… that and her love for continuity and organization! While you may only see her in the office occasionally, she is constantly contributing behind the scenes to keep our social media groups updated and our paperwork beautiful. Outside of The Natural Path Health Center, Kamray is a wife to Alex and a homeschooling mom to four kiddos, aged 2-7. When she isn’t working or being a busy mama, you can find her drinking coffee, working in her garden or playing an escape room!

Christi - Neuro Integration Therapist and Subluxation Scan Technician

(back row) Christi is a valley native, born and raised here in Fresno! She has explored many areas of health care, ranging from phlebotomy to certified medical assistant. Her interest in holistic healing is part of what led her to her position here at The Natural Path Healing Center. When not learning about natural health care you can find her spending all her spare time with her granddaughter, whom she absolutely adores! Christi is excited to be part of the team and to learn about how she can support you on your health care journey!

Heather - Stage Manager and Problem Solver

(front right) Heather, well, there are no words to describe her. You will find her keeping up on the special projects and maintaining the overall flow of the office. She is the glue that keeps everyone together and stable. Her lively personality and drive to complete tasks makes the office environment upbeat and exciting. Heather is a wife and mom of five teenagers and spends most of her free time either cleaning her house or caring for her family and close friends. When she does have time for fun you can find her at an escape room, playing competitive tactical laser tag, or shopping at estate sales.


The mission of The Natural Path Health Center is to inspire you to take back control of your health; to keep you out of the “sick care” system so you and your family can lead the vibrant and joyful life you were meant to live!
