Jessica Wei, MD, is a former board-certified Ob/Gyn who had the great privilege and honor to take care of thousands of women for seventeen years during their pregnancies and every phase of life from ages 10 to 95. Her conventional medical training began at the University of Virginia School of Medicine after completing her undergraduate and graduate studies at UVa. She completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology with the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. She went on to establish a very successful private Ob/Gyn practice in Connecticut, which she left in May 2016.
Over the years, as she listened carefully to thousands of women’s stories of their lives and their bodies, she began to realize the many limitations of conventional medical practice. She often felt that she did not have the proper tools to help women discover their true health and sense of well-being. And as she devoted her life to helping other women, she began to lose her health and vitality and almost let her own life completely slip away.
In search of better questions and keys to healing, she completed her fellowship in Integrative Medicine with the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and her certification in Functional Medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine. After she left her conventional medical practice in 2016, she took the leap and established her functional medicine practice. In 2019, she wrote Physician, Care for Thyself, as a guide to help others navigate their journey from burnout to back to a life of happiness and joy. She now works as a telehealth functional medicine doctor at Parsley Health.
She lives in West Hartford, Connecticut, with her two fabulous teenaged sons and loves walking barefoot outside, immersing herself in nature, and finding freedom in each present moment. As she follows her bliss more deeply, she knows that more beauty, joy, and love will continue to manifest.
