Melissa Schneider, MSN, FNP-C
Family Nurse Practitioner located in Klamath Falls, OR
Melissa Schneider, MSN, FNP-C, has joined OnePeak with over a decade of experience in healthcare. She started her career as a telemetry nurse at a Planetree-Certified hospital in California. She learned how to incorporate healing touch massage therapy and aromatherapy into her nursing practice. After seeing how integrative health can truly improve patient outcomes, it remained a staple of Melissa’s nursing practice throughout her time as an RN.
While treating people with chronic health conditions, Melissa had a gut feeling there was something missing. She strongly felt there had to be a better way to manage and prevent these crippling diseases. The desire to seek out ways to achieve authentic health led Melissa to Functional Medicine, and as a patient herself, she never looked back! Melissa earned her Master’s in Nursing at the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, and graduated with honors in 2020.
Melissa’s goal is to create a customized plan for her patients in order to reach their personal health goals through hormone balance, gut health, and lifestyle modifications. Melissa believes her patients intuitively know their bodies, and she wants to combine that intuition with her knowledge to achieve optimal wellness.
Melissa strives for her own balance through practicing yoga, hiking, and bike riding. She is also the doting mom of a 21-year-old teacup chihuahua, Lola.
