Meet the Team
Kelly began working at FRYE Functional Health Center in November of 2011. Kelly is one of our two coaches for the Shape ReClaimed Program. She helps counsel patients with personalized food plans and will help schedule your appointments, takes your phone calls, fill your supplement orders, and provide you with tips for clean eating along the way. Kelly is a great person to talk to if you need help incorporating dietary changes into your child’s life, as she herself has three children that she raises in this manner. She has a passion for natural healing and loves what we do at the office. She turned to natural wellness in 2010 when the western medical approach was no longer helping her.
Kelly resides in Columbia, is married to Tony, and has three children: Ayla, Regan, and Reese. She loves being a mom and getting outdoors anytime she can. Her hobbies are cooking, gardening, reading, camping, and helping people understand the importance of food and what you put into your body.
Billie Jo began working at FRYE Functional Health Center in March of 2015. She and her husband Chaz have been married since 2005, and reside in Bunker Hill with their son Castor. Billie Jo was told multiple times as a young woman by medical doctors that she could never have children, but just one month after following Dr. Frye’s testing and treatment protocol, she found out she was pregnant. She knows firsthand the amazing healing that comes from the type of care offered at FRYE Functional Health Center.
Billie Jo’s journey with holistic health began when she was 15 years old, when she opted to take a weightlifting class as opposed to prescription medication to help with her anxiety. This is something she continues to do in her spare time. She has taken this to the next level, and now helps others by being a fitness coach.
Over ten years ago she chose to take a clean eating, whole food approach to her diet. The combination of the dietary change and her passion for fitness has helped to change her physically, mentally, and emotionally for the better.
Billie Jo educates and guides patients through dietary and lifestyle changes in our office. This includes teaching the individualized Paleo Plus/Primal dietary plans we recommend for our patients to help balance their biochemistry while achieving and maintaining health. She is also an invaluable resource for those going through the SHAPE ReClaimed program, as she herself has achieved success in the program. She can understand the personal struggles and successes that people go through when trying to alter their relationship with food. Her hope is that she can help guide people through this transition to find a new level of wellness through the help of our office and everything offered to them here.
“I absolutely love what I do here. Showing people that good health is something they CAN have in this crazy, fast, and busy world we live in is a blessing to me. I love the amount of compassion that the doctors have with each patient and that we have the opportunity to come to work and help educate people about true health….well, there just isn’t anything better.”
Kristi began working at FRYE Functional Health Center in August of 2019. Kristi was a patient for 9.5 years prior to joining the team herself. She has been fascinated with and intrigued by everything health and wellness since her aerobics class in high school that showed her she could get an amazing workout at home with DVDs! (VHS at the time!) She still gets her workouts in, in this way, to this day. Kristi has 2 amazing sons, Jay & Paxton, and lives in the Edwardsville area.
Kristi has a passion for what the Dr.'s Frye practice in their office. She loves seeing people want to heal themselves & taking action to do so. Kristi loves learning about & studying anything that has to do with nutrition, fitness, health, & wellness. She loves to be an encourager as well as helping people take responsibility for their own health & lives.
Kristi is still learning & growing & will continue to do so - That is what this life is all about!
Erika began working at FRYE Functional Health Center in March of 2022. After working for 5 years in the dental field, she was delighted to join the FRYE team in providing support and education to patients from a holistic health and wellness approach. Her health and wellness journey started back in 2012 when she was introduced to essential oils. This led to a desire to focus on clean and non-toxic ingredients for beauty products and cleaning products for use around the house. It was only a matter of time before the focus shifted from what goes "on" the body to what goes "in" the body. Erika still has much to learn about nutrition, health and wellness, but is excited to share what she has already learned along her journey.
Erika and her husband Colin have been married for 7 years. They both love to travel, and are always up for an adventure. Erika loves to bake, read, and serve in various ministries at church. Erika also loves cheesy jokes, is proficient at flossing (the dance and hygiene skill), and getting out for a walk or a BODYPUMP class.
