Jenna Lightfoot, PA-C

After graduating PA school in 2009, I began working in a generalized Family Practice clinic in Goodyear, AZ. It did not take long to realize that conventional medicine does not take into consideration nutrition for treatment or prevention of disease. After searching for several years for answers to my own health problems, a fellow physician assistant introduced me to the paleo diet and I have never looked back. Since that time, I have been studying and researching a Paleo / Primal / Low-Carb lifestyle as a treatment for many medical diseases and the ultimate tool of prevention. I use this knowledge of lifestyle and nutrition to help my patients heal and maintain their ultimate health with medication being a last resort.
When I’m not working or doing more research into this amazing lifestyle I like to read, cook, scrapbook, hike, spend time with family, and play with my dog Tally.
