Asia is the clinic manager at Autumn Leaves; she takes care of logistics, provider needs, and keeping everything running smoothly. As someone who has struggled with mental and emotional health her whole life, Asia wants to do what she can to help others and loves working for Autumn Leaves. She appreciates and fully supports the holistic and mental health outlook that Autumn Leaves teaches and shares. She has a bachelor's degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho. She has considered going back to school and studying clinical psychology. Asia has grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and still holds to the beliefs but makes a point to never judge others whose opinions differ from hers. She respects people from all backgrounds, belief systems, sexual orientations, and genders. She will treat anyone and everyone with respect and kindness whenever possible.
Asia believes that a person comprises many parts, including; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and metaphysical. Keeping each part of ourselves balanced and healthy is the only way to feel complete and fit. Each person has their journey and methods to make this balance happen. She wishes that all people could look at their differences and recognize that they have the same goals when it comes down to the general. Everyone wants to feel happy and have confidence in themselves and their path. She also wishes that medicine would integrate a more cohesive outlook, using all types of modern, holistic, and everything in between to treat and help people heal.
To Asia, her family and friends mean everything to her and make her life worth living. She has an eclectic personality, causing her to have various interests and hobbies outside work. These include ballroom dancing, crafts, reading, writing, spending time with loved ones, and caring for her two feline fur babies.

M'lisa has been on a journey of trauma recovery for five years and loves to advocate the importance of mental well-being. She believes in having compassion for her fellow humans. It is her goal to be a force of kindness in life. She enjoys the caring atmosphere at Autumn Leaves and is proud that she can be a part of it.
She grew up in Reno, Nevada, and recently moved to Idaho Falls to be near family. At the same time, she raised her three children as a single mother. Her children are the core of who she is and give her a reason to live. “I focus as much time as possible on bringing my children up to be loving and compassionate. The world needs love now more than ever.” When her attention isn't on her children, she enjoys reading, finding books at used bookstores, and collecting as many as possible. Aside from raising three good humans, her goal in life is to spread positivity.
Someday she'd love to have a small home in the country with a library full of books and a garden where she can keep bees and chickens.
