Dr. Muir graduated with her doctorate in pharmacy in 2007 from Ohio Northern University. She began working in community pharmacy as a staff pharmacist for a regional grocery pharmacy chain, then also practiced as a pharmacy manager for a short time. She truly enjoys the opportunities to interact with her patients that community pharmacy provides.
Her integrative medicine training has come from various conferences, continuing education opportunities, and she has recently completed course work through the School of Applied Functional Medicine.
Dr. Muir married her husband Matt in 2007 after graduating from Ohio Northern, and they settled in central Ohio. Together they enjoy traveling, music, and volunteering in their local church. Melissa also loves to bake and is continually coming up with creative ways to meal plan for their three children with food allergies.
Her functional medicine journey began when her son was born with multiple medical problems that took several years to sort out. An integrative pediatrician, well versed in functional medicine, was able to get to the bottom of his issues. This sparked a passion in Melissa about finding root causes for health problems and viewing health from a more holistic perspective. She also successfully reversed her own early stages of thyroid disease by applying functional medicine principles. She firmly believes lifestyle, nutrition and quality supplements are crucial components of getting and staying healthy.
