Karen Zizzo is a certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She began her career as a registered nurse in Chicago after graduating with her bachelor’s Degree in nursing from the University of Illinois in Chicago. She worked for many years as a critical care nurse as well as PACU. Karen later attended the University of Texas in Austin and obtained her master’s Degree with certification as a Family Nurse Practitioner.
As a nurse practitioner, Karen worked in a variety of fields- family practice, women’s health, and neurology. The more she practiced, the more she was convinced that a more functional approach- to get at the root cause of disease and illness was vital- and not just prescribe a pill to blanket the symptoms. She believes that many of the chronic health conditions we are battling today can be prevented through dietary changes and reducing inflammation.
Karen has been using a more functional approach to treating patients and has actively been pursuing more education and training in functional medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine and various other longevity and anti-aging programs. She is also trained in aesthetics- Botox, facial fillers, etc.
Karen is married, and the mother of three grown sons- which she attributes to advancing “her development of patience”. She lives an active life and utilizes the same type of healthy lifestyle practices that she advises her patients to follow.
