Nurse Practitioner & Chef, Osher Center for Integrative Health
Pamela Sharpe is a nurse practitioner for the Osher Center specializing in integrative and lifestyle medicine. Trained as a chef, her journey started with food as she wanted to create higher-quality nutritional meals for her family and friends, some of whom were affected adversely by chronic health and lifestyle-related conditions. Seeking to gain an even greater understanding, she went on to receive her Bachelor’s in Food and Nutrition with Pre-Med and Chemistry. This helped to provide a greater understanding of advanced nutrition, biochemistry, and human metabolism as related to wellness, diseases, and chronic conditions. Armed with this knowledge, she went on to gain graduate-level training and experience as an ANCC Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner.
Chef Stephanie Michalak White, EdD joined the Osher Center Culinary Medicine team in 2022. She has worked in the hospitality industry for over a decade and has a doctorate in Higher Education Leadership from Maryville University. During her doctoral studies, her research focused on food insecurity in higher education. Stephanie helps oversee two online academic programs for the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts and works with the Osher Center for Integrative Health at UC teaching food as medicine principles.
