Kristi Fury-Hazen is a certified family nurse practitioner and bio-identical hormone therapy provider. She received her bachelor’s degree in Nursing Science (BSN) from Texas Tech University in 2002 and continued her education at the University of New Mexico Health Science Center where she received her master’s degree in 2006.
Kristi chose Family Medicine as her specialty because it allows her to treat the whole person and to develop long-term, caring relationships with her patients.
“I have always had an interest in supporting people on their journey through health,” Kristi says.
As a certified family nurse practitioner, she has worked as an ER nurse practitioner, a hospitalist at Presbyterian Hospital and in several family practice clinics.
In her free time, Kristi enjoys several hobbies such as running, snow skiing, wake surfing and mixed martial arts (MMA). She enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter Addison.
Kristi became certified in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in May 2016 after experiencing pellet therapy firsthand. She quickly recognized the benefits of hormone optimization and saw how it improved her life.
“Within six weeks of my first hormone pellet insertion, I slept better, had more energy and mental clarity, and had an overall renewed sense of well being,” Kristi says.
Since becoming a certified EvexiPEL provider, she has shared her experience with pellet therapy with others and has administered it to both close friends and patients who have benefited from EvexiPEL hormone replacement.
Kristi believes that the majority of medications treat symptoms, instead the cause of the patient’s health challenge.
“I am passionate about EvexiPEL because it truly makes a difference in my patient’s health.”
