The Well Empowered Mission

We believe preserving and elevating our health and vitality is fundamental to fulfilling what our life is about.

I created Well Empowered with one commitment
in mind:

Providing answers and guidance that allow you to create the health and vitality foundational to realizing your fullest potential.

How do I live true to this?

At Well Empowered, I take a data-driven, Functional Medicine approach that balances science and heart.

Our partnership provides you with customized guidance, strategies, and care to help you translate your health data into meaningful, sustained change.

I began this journey in 2004 when I drew a line in the sand and stepped off the “weight loss roller coaster” forever. I embraced science and self-love and vowed to dedicate my life to giving others access to this most spectacular gift – a level of vitality that allows for realizing one’s fullest potential.

Here at Well Empowered, my Mission is to (re)solve your health symptoms, concerns, and conundrums, allowing you to live your life with the vitality you need to contribute fully to the world what only you can.

Through a data-driven, outcome-oriented natural approach, I custom craft solutions grounded in science and tailored to your goals and needs while tapping into the body’s tremendous ability to heal. Breakthroughs are supported by the three fundamental principles that guide my work: information, inspiration, and strategy.

Backed By Science.
Driven by Devotion.

A lifelong learner committed to guiding you in your sacred health journey.
I earned a Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States, a Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine from National University of Health Sciences, and a Bachelor of Arts from UCLA.

I am an IFM Certified Practitioner, a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN), and a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS). I have learned from various physicians at the forefront of Functional Medicine, including Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, and Dr. Datis Kharrazian.

Prior to attending graduate school, I established myself as an expert in the fitness industry as a Certified Yoga Instructor and Master Level Certified SuperSlow High-Intensity Strength Trainer. In my spare time, you will find me hiking with my husband, hitting the weights at CWSS, or preparing a beautiful, healthy meal for my loved ones.

Dr. Hehmeyer is a true docere (from the Latin word for ‘doctor,’ meaning to teach, show, or point out). She knows that healing occurs only when individuals understand the what, why, and how behind their unique health solutions.

A partner and guide for the journey…

As an IFM Certified Practitioner, I am a champion for your vitality and provide data-driven natural health solutions that produce transformative results.

When we work together, you’re my partner, playing an essential role in your healing and vitality. We’ll address the root cause of your health problems by identifying your unique health barriers – mindset, physiological and biological, and logistical.

I’ll provide you with targeted solutions backed by data, scientific research, and clinical experience that lead to sustainable, measurable outcomes that help you live a Well Empowered life.

“I had been struggling with a series of health issues for years – all different and all seemingly unrelated. I was running out of hope that I would ever get answers when a colleague recommended Dr. Hehmeyer. From our very first conversation, she was able to connect the dots and bring clarity to my health issues. I felt heard, safe, and genuinely cared for in every interaction, and have made great progress in so many areas of my health. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
