Dr. Shuler is a certified family nurse practitioner specializing in women’s healthcare and in preventive, hormonal, nutritional and metabolic therapies. She received her Bachelor’s degree in nursing from Western Carolina University in 1977, her Master’s degree and Nurse Practitioner training from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 1980, and her Doctorate in public health nursing from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1991.
Dr. Shuler started learning about “healthy living” at a young age from her grandmother and her husband’s grandmother who both lived past the age of 100. They taught her the value of good, fresh food, vitamins and minerals. As a result of this influence, she has integrated principles of nutrition into her healthcare practice for more than 25 years.
A prolific author, Dr. Shuler has published multiple theoretical and research articles pertaining to holistic health and women’s health, and has coauthored a textbook entitled “Natural, Alternative and Complementary Health Care Practices.” Her original holistic practice model, “The Shuler Nurse Practitioner Practice Model” is used worldwide by universities and nurse practitioners as a model for holistic healthcare. Dr. Shuler has lectured at numerous national and regional healthcare conferences as well as internationally. She is a member of Sigma Thera Tau, the National Nurses Honor Society, the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, and currently holds an adjunct faculty position at Western Carolina University.
Dr. Shuler has guided many patients along the path to health and balance by integrating holistic principles with her extensive skills and experience. She and her husband live in Sylva, NC and enjoy hiking with their dogs, camping, playing music and spending time with family and friends.
