Dr. Meyer is board certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Medicine. She received full training in Functional Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine. She received her Bachelor's degree in Nursing from Niagara University and attended medical school at Des Moines University.
She worked at the Cleveland Clinic prior to relocating to South Carolina. Discouraged by poor outcomes in traditional medicine, she searched to find a way to help people improve their health and take fewer medicines.

training at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, she also completed a fellowship in

Dr. Scanlon uses a patient-centered approach to medicine, searching for the cause of disorders rather than treating only the symptoms of disease. She utilizes a “salutogenic model” which is concerned with the relationship between health, stress and coping mechanisms. Salutogenesis focuses on the factors that support human health and well being.

The first time I began to realize that there were some major flaws in our current healthcare system was in my third year of medical school, when I noticed that some of our patients with chronic diseases, whom we had just discharged from the hospital a few weeks ago, were being readmitted. To me, this did not make sense.
As healthcare providers, why were we not able to help our patients get better and stay better? Why did their chronic diseases keep progressing, despite them being on a long list of medications that were supposed to treat their diseases?
Seeking the answers to these questions is what eventually brought me to the practice of Functional Medicine. What I came to understand was that our patients were not getting better because we were only ever treating their symptoms and doing nothing to investigate and treat the root cause of their symptoms. So, the underlying disease processes kept progressing, and based on our conventional training, all we could do was add on more and more medications. This is a very disempowering position for both patients and providers.
What I love most about Functional Medicine is that it puts the power back in the patient’s hands. As a provider, I’m able to work together with my patients to help them use a combination of lifestyle and behavior changes, supplements, and when needed, medications, to address the root of their symptoms. I also enjoy working with patients on incorporating practices like meditation and practical healthy living skills like cooking, into their daily life. My goal is to enable my patients to focus on living the life they want, instead of a life limited by their diagnoses.
I received my bachelor’s degree from Carnegie Mellon University and attended medical school at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. I am board certified in Preventive Medicine and am certified in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine.
After my residency, I spent a year teaching at a medical school in Sri Lanka and conducting research on mindfulness in medicine. I also recently completed training in culinary medicine through The Institute of Lifestyle Medicine.

Beth O'Leary has had a lifelong passion for health and wellness and is honored to help clients explore their own motivation and tools to reach their personal goals.
While Beth enjoyed a career in the field of advertising that was focused on the healthcare industry, there was always a feeling of wanting to do more to help people on a personal level.
This desire first led her to obtain certification as a registered yoga teacher in 2006, where she was able to share her love of yoga and its many benefits with others.
However, it was a health crisis that would eventually lead Beth towards the field of functional medicine and health coaching. In 2007, her husband was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. It was a very aggressive disease, which took many years of surgeries and treatments ranging from Western (allopathic) to naturopathic medicine modalities to overcome. Thankfully he is now healthy and doing well. But the stress of these years of uncertainty, combined with raising two young children, took its toll on Beth’s health.
In prior years, she had successfully managed an unusual autoimmune condition but found that she was having a tougher time keeping it under control. A range of symptoms started to overtake her, including fatigue, brain fog, body aches, etc., and she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. This led Beth back to naturopathic and functional medicine, and while it took time to find the right balance, she learned the many ways that she was able to help herself heal on a physical, mental and emotional level.
During this time, it spurred her to learn as much as possible about the best lifestyle practices for reaching optimal health. It also boosted Beth’s desire to help others through their own health journeys, ultimately leading her to the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy to obtain training as a health coach.
No matter where you are on your health journey, Beth will walk alongside you and support you in finding the incremental changes that will lead you towards greater wellness.

John’s career focus is on improving others' quality of life, particularly through physical health and mental health, while improving efficiency and effectiveness for professionals wanting to contribute to others’ lives.
His passion for finding the most credible, evidence-based, efficient & effective approaches for helping people led him to Motivational Interviewing (particularly due to its best-practice status in the behavior change science after being introduced to Self-Determination Theory). John's utilized MI in clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, and social work settings.
He has also provided training for empowering organizations to sustain outcome improvements through teaching MI coding and coaching with fidelity.
To accomplish this fidelity, he has utilized, and provided multiple trainings on, the tool known as the MI Treatment Integrity (MITI) manual. Now he trains on, and coaches with, the latest MI fidelity tool he co-authored with other MI experts, known as the MI Competency Assessment (MICA) tool.
As a co-author on a team of highly experienced and credible authors for the MICA, and as someone who has coded and coached over 4,000 MI sessions, John is intimately attune to nuances with MI that are commonly missed in usual MI training and feedback.
Thanks in large part to his mentor in MI, Casey Jackson, he continues to receive testimonials that the MI Training or coaching he facilitates, or the training of professionals in the MICA tool, is a helpful and unique approach and perspective with MI.
This degree of exceptional training was even termed us as being the “avant-garde” of MI when training the MICA in two languages while in Wroclaw, Poland with the Polish Institute for Motivational Interviewing.
One of these projects where John both trained and utilized the MICA extensively was a nation-wide project that commenced at the end of 2016, where he traveled around the nation to train over 1800 dietitians with the collaboration of two other trainers from Q-Consult LLC (a company ran by a National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded researcher, Dr. Susan Butterworth).
Simultaneously, he was part of a team of coaches who utilized the MICA for providing feedback and coaching to over 6,000 audio recorded interactions of healthcare professionals and patients.
John remains loyal to his mentoring and training of Casey Jackson and his Institute for Individual & Organizational Change (IFIOC). Through IFIOC, John has been adjunct Faculty at Eastern Washington University, teaching MI while coding and coaching Occupational Therapy (OT) students with standardized reports using the MICA, and continuing to guest lecture to this day.
He also regularly provides interactive guest training to healthcare students from Washington State University, Gonzaga University, and University of Washington, along with local health professionals interested in providing the highest quality and most effective and efficient care to their clients/patients.
While training locally to students and professionals, he simultaneously would be training different divisions within the Department of Social and Human Services (DSHS) to help a variety of services that empower low income individuals and families with employment, security, and self-sufficiency.
For example, Department of Corrections, Head Start/ECEAP, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Community Service Offices, and other social services.
Whereas, over the last 3 years, he has been traveling around the country training, coding, and coaching professionals in an organization that helps those with criminal backgrounds responsibly, autonomously, and pro-socially integrate back into society via a special re-employment program through the Center for Employment Opportunities.
Be it training healthcare, or social work, behavioral health, or corrections professionals, John continues to focus on the evidence of MI, incorporating it into training, systems implementation and clinical work.
