My Journey

From the starting gate, I knew I was not meant for allopathic medicine. Prior to finishing my medical program, I suffered from severe fatigue. It was during my last clinical rotation working with a functional medicine physician that I discovered I had adrenal fatigue. I had never heard of the term because it is not a recognized medical diagnosis. When I went to my primary care doctor, he ran a blood panel and told me everything was normal. I knew something was wrong. I went from juggling a demanding work/school schedule, running five miles per day, and living a vibrant life, to a level of debilitating fatigue I could never have imagined. I was so blessed to be rotating through the ideal clinic to learn the skills and appropriate treatments that would eventually bring me back to health. From that point, I never looked back and only wanted to practice functional medicine.

Emmy, AKA Emmalee Higinbotham is a Certified Integrative Healthcare Practitioner, Certified Nutrition Coach, Personal Trainer and 20+ year veteran in Directing Integrative Healthcare Clinics and Laboratories. Emmy is also the Co-Founder of Macro Mavens, the sister company to Medical Mavens. She is passionate about using and providing tools to allow anybody interested to live a thriving life full of abundance, longevity and simple goodness. As a Mom to two busy farm boys, an avid adventurer and multiple business owner, she recognizes and understands a busy and complex life. For that very reason, she is determined to be a part of creating simple, easily accessible tools to allow people to have both health and hormone harmony from the privacy of their own homes and on their own terms and time! She really believes the more balance we can have as individuals, the more beautiful our communities and connections can be! 

After working for several decades in the healthcare industry, Emmy saw how truly broken the system is. Heathcare really has become sick care and Emmy desperately wants to see more emphasis put on foundational health, disease reversal and prevention. Macro Mavens was birthed out of this desire in which the MM team provides one on one customized coaching for optimal nutrition and focuses on the pillars of wellness including reducing chronic inflammation, deep sleep, stress resiliency, movement and hydration. Working with clients in reaching their goals while creating lasting habits has been so rewarding. The Macro Mavens team would often work with clinicians on client outcomes and see time and time again see the natural balance in hormones, energy, sleep, etc. Emmy & Haley (founders of Macro Mavens) also recognized the power of working closely with client’s healthcare providers for a true partnership in optimal health. This rings especially true in the area of health and hormone harmony. Medical Mavens was birthed from the idea that having a like-minded sister company with the most stilled medical providers would allow for a beautiful marriage for ideal client outcomes where the right hand and left hand could work together! Emmy’s vision for whole body wellness, accessible to all with straight forward, tangible steps is really the marriage of both Macro Mavens and Medical Mavens! 

In addition to pursuing her passion of impacting the health of the masses, Emmy lives on an active hay farm and is the co-owner in a Jiu Jitsu and Parkour gym on her farm. She loves to adventure and explore with family and friends and is committed to seeing God’s beauty and seeking joy in everything around her! Emmy can’t wait to see how the impact of both Macro Mavens and Medical Mavens continues to unfold!
