Dr. Joan Hunter

Lifestyle Medicine Board Certified Physician

Background & story

Background & story

Dr. Hunter is an Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine Board Certified physician and wellness advocate. As a native of Louisiana, Joan grew up loving food. However, healthy lifestyles are not prevalent in the South and she grew up overweight and inactive.


That changed when she moved to Atlanta for college, but medical school back in New Orleans led her back to some old habits. Dr. Hunter's professional journey took her to the Pacific Northwest, where she learned over the last decade to be active and enjoy a new style of eating and living. She spent most of 2020 building upon her personal interest in nutrition and wellness to become Lifestyle Medicine Board certified.

She loves pairing the simple tenants of Lifestyle Medicine with her knowledge as a physician, as well as her experience as someone who has personally changed her habits to move into a healthy lifestyle. Lifestyle Medicine is the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and other non-drug modalities to treat, often reverse, and prevent lifestyle-related chronic disease.
