Dr. Searson cherishes the trusting relationships that develop over time, and truly loves getting to know and care for whole families.
Over the last 8 years, Dr. Searson has become more interested in lifestyle medicine and wellness. She has sought out additional training in Integrative Medicine, Integrative Nutrition and Wellness Coaching, and is excited to be able to integrate these components into her practice.
Outside of work, Dr. Searson enjoys spending time with her husband, two children, and their two English labradors. She loves travel, being outdoors, and participating in anything creative. Her current creative passion is oil painting. You may notice a few hanging around her office.
