Emily Trede, MSN, ANP-BC
Emily Trede is a board-certified Adult Nurse Practitioner with over a decade of experience in nursing. She began her career as an RN in the ICU where she learned both to care for the acutely ill and be an advocate and source of support at the bedside for patients and their families. She then transitioned into the role of a nurse practitioner in 2009, receiving her degree from The University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, and began working in internal medicine and family practice. After an introduction to functional medicine in 2012, Emily really felt she had found the best path towards truly helping her patients.
Emily strongly believes that the ability to utilize both traditional and integrative medicine is necessary for true health promotion. Delving deeper into each patient’s story and history helps to more effectively find the source of dysfunction and work holistically to treat it, a concept not currently supported by the traditional medical model. She feels it is important to take the time to explore each aspect of health, such as physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being, and to work in a partnership with her patients. She believes in evidence-based practices as a foundation for incorporating more integrative and functional medicine ideas into treatment plans to look at the whole person and not simply a set of symptoms.
After working with and learning from a physician in integrative internal medicine over the past several years, Emily is very excited to bring her experience to Rocky Mountain Comprehensive Health. She has particular interest in endocrine disorders, autoimmune disorders, women’s health, and mental health.
Emily currently lives in Parker, Colorado with her husband and two young sons. She enjoys being outdoors in her spare time, hiking and mountain biking, and has a passion for traveling, cooking, and reading.
