Some inspirational and informative words from our Live Life Well team!
Kelly Engelmann, FNP-BC, founded Enhanced Wellness Living in the Jackson/Ridgeland area of Mississippi in 2004. Kelly has dedicated years to researching and developing treatment strategies using a food first approach for healing her patients. Through years of experience in clinical, hospital, surgical, and obstetrics/OBGYN healthcare, and her keen observations, Kelly became aware that, even with the best doctors, the patient population she was serving was developing and living in a chronic disease state. She understood that the tools and resources patients needed to gain control of their health and live a life of vitality were limited.
Kelly was convinced she could be doing more for her patients and her passion for using food and nutrition as a tool for healing blossomed. Kelly began with what she knew best, hormone balancing, and our practice has grown to support hundreds of patients through taking control of their health and overcoming conditions such as, hormone imbalances, dietary challenges, nutritional health, body composition, thyroid diseases, cardiovascular diseases, erectile dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, incontinence, CIRS, autoimmune disease, hair loss, mental health, skin health, gut health, natural aging, and more! Kelly and the team will work with you to understand the underlying root cause of symptoms and empower you to heal your body and cultivate a life-long plan of energy and vitality!
At Enhanced Wellness Living, Kelly and her team partners with each of their patients to develop individual wellness plans, which ensures you are educated in creating a sustainable lifestyle of wellness. Kelly understands that your beliefs and values should align with your wellness goals. She developed a well-thought-out curriculum for her patients that serves as a part of the learning and empowerment of their journey. Kelly believes that a lifestyle of health and wellness has a ripple effect and knows that the tools she imparts on her patients impact not only the patient, but their families and friends as well.

Kelly Engelmann found her passion for healing others early on in life, beginning her career in medicine working in an OB-GYN clinic while still attending high school. With limited funds for college, Kelly’s mentor encouraged her to pursue an Operating Room Technician Certification. Kelly successfully completed her Certification and worked in the operating room and labor and delivery while continuing her education.
Kelly earned an Associate of Arts Degree from Hinds Community College, followed by her Baccalaureate Degree from the University of Mississippi. While studying at the University of Mississippi she was selected to serve in the Valor Program at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. There, Kelly received mentorship from professional nurses, which inspired her to continue her education and nursing path. Kelly soon graduated top of her class, receiving the Christine Olavee Award.
After graduation, Kelly joined the team at the Mississippi State hospital; an experience which she reflects on as humbling. Here, Kelly cared for chronically ill patients that often had little to no financial resources or family support. During this time, she earned her Masters in Nursing and her Family Nurse Practitioner training at the University of Southern Mississippi. Kelly was blessed to find her dream position in an OB-GYN clinic on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with yet another inspiring mentor. Here she learned the value of always listening to your patients. Kelly completed her RN-FA Certification and was able to support the physician in both the operating room and clinic.
In 2004 Kelly founded Enhanced Wellness Living Functional Medicine Clinic in Mississippi using her passion and education for food as medicine and healing. Kelly knew that understanding the underlying cause of symptoms and disease and treating them with the use of nutritional education would empower her patients to live long, healthy lives. She started with what she knew best, hormone balancing, and since then the clinic has flourished through the proactive approach to Functional/Integrative/Lifestyle Medicine. Kelly and the Enhanced Wellness Living team thrive on educating and empowering their patients to take control of their health through healthy lifestyle changes which lead to the prevention of chronic illness.
Kelly received her Master’s Degree in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine from the University of South Florida’s Medical School. She completed the Fellowship in Anti-Aging Medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. Kelly is committed to both the Mississippi Nurses Association and the American Nurses Association. In 2019 Kelly co-founded Synergee, a network of Integrative Medicine practitioners, with a passion and commitment to expanding education on and access to Functional Medicine.

Sherie Bailey Holland
Board Certified Health Coach
Sherie is the founder of Recontrol Health in Oxford, Mississippi. She began partnering with Enhanced Wellness Living as our Health Coach in early 2019 to further educate our patients on healthy lifestyle and nutrition choices and to support healing from chronic health issues. Sherie believes in a holistic approach to healing and nutritional counseling. After years of dealing with her own chronic illnesses, she discovered the importance of nutrition and thyroid health to your overall wellness.
Sherie understands what it is like to know something is wrong with your body and overall health but to be told that your testing is “normal” or to be completely misdiagnosed. After 10 years of being told that symptoms of hair loss, infertility, brain fog, the inability to lose weight and more were all “normal”, a thyroid nodule was found and she had half of her thyroid removed. From there Sherie took the proper steps, including detoxing her body and taking JuciePlus and iodine, to overcome nutritional deficiencies. Sherie now serves as a health advocate on a mission to empower people in learning how to become better advocates for their health and the health of their families! She hopes to close the gap from the time that people experience symptoms to when they are properly diagnosed. Sherie believes in educating the public on thyroid health, nutrition, and holistic approaches to healing the body.
Sherie studied at the University of Mississippi and has over 10 years of experience as a Health Coach. She is an American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) Certified Lifestyle Health Coach, a Board-Certified Health Coach with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and a Metabolic Effect Nutrition Consultant.
Around the Enhanced Wellness Clinic, you will find Sherie educating patients through our Orientation, Understanding your Labs, Emotional Eating, Healthy Holiday Eating classes and more!
