In her free time, Jessica can often be found spending time with her husband and family, or snuggling with their cats.

CASSIE MARTINEZ, FNP-BC

Cassie grew up in rural Ohio where she attended The Ohio State University for undergrad. She spent several years working in the mental health field, eventually earning a Master’s degree in Psychology and Crisis Management. After seeing the physical effects that mental illness can have on the body, she decided to pursue a career in nursing. She is a double Hoo, obtaining two Master’s degrees in Nursing from UVA. Her nursing experience includes medical surgical nursing and solid organ transplant.

Cassie is a dedicated Army wife, and moved to Charlottesville with her husband more than 10 years ago. She has two children and a loyal Blue Tick Hound at home. Cassie has a passion for helping patients manage their mental health in all stages of life. She also enjoys assisting families with increasing their health and wellness, family planning, and managing chronic illness. In her free time, Cassie can be found baking treats, reading classic novels, and wrangling in the chaos that young children bring.

Janell Langley, FNP-BC

Janell has lived in many places around the country, most recently Colorado. After receiving her undergrad degree at Cox College of Nursing in Springfield, Mo., she worked as a surgical nurse in Denver and later as a case manager with two major hospital groups. She then went on to get her MSN from Walden University with a focus on Family Nurse Practitioner. Janell loves developing relationships with her patients and working alongside them as they succeed in achieving their health goals.

Janell has traveled around the world doing mission work in Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, and St. Vincent; focusing on medical work in Haiti, India, Peru, Honduras, and Egypt. In her spare time, Janell loves traveling, skiing, cooking, being in the ocean, and spending time with her nieces.

Mikelah Taylor, FNP-BC

Mikelah hails from historic Yorktown, Virginia. She left the York River in favor of the Blue Ridge Mountains to attend the University of Virginia to obtain her undergraduate degree in nursing. She fell in love with Charlottesville and decided to stick around post-grad, spending several years working at UVA hospital in adult acute care before embarking on a travel nursing stint. Her experience seeing patients in the hospital convinced her that wellness begins at home, and her passion for holistic health care led her to pursue her degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from UVA’s graduate nursing program.

Outside of work, Mikelah can be found reading a good book, playing and coaching volleyball (she met her husband Nick through pick-up volleyball!), making lattes and friends over at her part-time gig at Kindness Cafe, and spending as much time as she can outside- be it hiking, camping, or floating along the Rivanna.
