Jacqui Pariset, MD

University of Washington School of Medicine, Doctor of Medicine (MD)

Board-Certified Family Medicine Diplomate

Institute of Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner

Meet Omnia Health’s Functional Medicine Team

Dr. Jacqui Pariset founded her functional medicine practice, Omnia Health after working as a primary care doctor for over 10 years in a traditional, conventional family medicine office. Frustrated with the current system’s treatment approach – 15-minute patient visits and writing prescriptions – Dr. Jacqui became certified in functional medicine. This leading-edge approach to medicine enables her (and the entire Omnia Health team) to provide an in-depth, well-rounded approach to medicine that reaps results.

Backed by in-depth training and experience, Dr. Jacqui and her Denver practice, bring together the best of traditional medicine, functional medicine, and nutritional insights to uncover the underlying root cause of illness and meet patients’ health goals. Bottom line: Patients see improvement to their chronic health issues – and improvements to their overall health, wellbeing, and vitality.

Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner

Jacqui Pariset, MD, is also a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner through the Institute of Functional Medicine. Her emphasis is on applying a whole-person approach to uncover the underlying drivers of chronic and systemic illness.

In addition, Dr. Jacqui trained with Chris Kresser, L.Ac in Ancestral Nutrition and Functional Medicine as well as the ReCODE protocol (treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia) through MPI Cognition with Dale Bredesen, MD.

When not treating patients, Dr. Jacqui reads copious medical articles to stay abreast of the latest data and medical insights. She enjoys cooking for her family, keeping up with her 2 daughters, staying fit with yoga and Orangetheory Fitness, and relaxing with her friends and family.

Gia McCloskey-Jurevich, NP

Board-Certified Nurse Practitioner

Institute of Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner

Gia began her health career in 1998 as a Registered Nurse. Her journey to functional medicine was prompted by her diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis in 2009. Traditional medicine lacked the tools to answer why she developed an autoimmune disease. Utilizing lifestyle interventions and discovering root causes – key to the functional medicine approach – Gia has been able to minimize and reverse her symptoms.

Gia partners with patients to discover the underlying root cause of chronic illness, starting with a comprehensive investigation into their lifestyle and lab results. Typically, the emphasis is on gastrointestinal (GI) health, hormone balancing, and autoimmune diseases.

When not working directly with patients, Gia spends time researching mind/body approaches to healing, paleo recipes, playing with her goldendoodle Ollie, or spending time outdoors hiking, skiing, and having fun with her family.

Katie Ozimek

Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach

I grew up outside of Chicago but the mountains were always calling.  I moved to Colorado to attend the University of Denver 22 years ago and I have never looked back.  I found my way into functional medicine after being diagnosed with Celiac disease and not being able to find any answers about why I was feeling so poorly. I turned to Dr. Jacqui and she inspired me to be a better person while helping me figure out my own health situation.  Functional medicine took the blinders off for me and I hope I can do that for others. 

Since my celiac diagnosis and change in my diet I have started a small business selling healthy gluten free granola and brownies.  I have also studied mindfulness and how important it is to be present.  As well,  I have learned to dare greatly and face challenges head on.  I would like to guide people through their challenges with empathy and warmth.  I want to be available to people when it feels like no one else will even listen.  

I have a lot of personal experience that I know would be very helpful to draw on while working with clients. I have a zest for learning new and improved ways to care for our bodies and change the way people live.  I am a very motivated person and I feel that my energy and drive will help motivate others.  I have a degree in communications which will help me to listen, really listen and to understand people’s fears, their challenges, their goals and their dreams. 

When not working or studying you can find me in the kitchen cooking, gardening with my husband, watching my kids sports, skiing with my family, working out or on the tennis court.  As well, my two kids and black lab keep me very busy. 

Degrees and certifications:

  • BA in Mass Communications/Human Communications
  • Graduate of Functional Medicine Coaching Academy
