Encore Wellness 4 Life LLC was created by Jennifer Keith-Armstrong (Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner) and Mark Keith (Paramedic).
ARNP/ Medical Director
Jennifer has served patients in allopathic, mainstream medicine for 25 years comprising over 180,000 patients visits. This journey in care and association to her peers gave rise to her focus the past ten years on Integrative Functional Medicine– a natural approach to anti-aging and wellness to reverse disease processes. Collaboration and mentorship with Dr. Stephen Smith brings years of knowledge to care plan.
Jennifer annually attends continuing education on natural approaches to medicine and integrative pharmacology. She is also certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Life Support, and Trauma. She also volunteers as an RN Medic in her local community on an ambulance.
Mark Keith, Encore Clinic Technician, is an experienced front-line paramedic where he performs life-saving skills while also identifying extreme deficiencies in general health and lifestyle. Mark brings valuable field experience to the clinical environment focusing with patients on topics like benefits of IV therapy and nutritional wellness to build natural immunity. He oversees day to day operations in Umatilla and Kennewick and is passionate to hold public events to share the knowledge of his medical team.
I began my journey into integrative medicine in 1985, when I developed fibromyalgia and realized I was clueless about effective and rapid treatment. Surprisingly, so were most of my colleagues, who, like me, practiced traditional or allopathic medicine. Following the quote, “physician, heal thyself,” I started my quest into alternative and integrative medicine. Subsequently, I realized my case was not unique. I discovered that many physicians at integrative medicine meetings and training sessions also suffered from similar health conditions; many restored themselves to full health and vitality using integrative medicine.
