After working as a laboratory technician for many years, Dr. Brangman felt led to switch careers and pursue medicine so that she could help others live healthy lives of which she has seen her parents enjoy the benefits of. Dr. Brangman has been predominately plant based for many years, but has been vegan for over 4 years. She is a double board certified physician, Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Brangman has experience as both a primary care physician and a hospitalist. She is an advocate for a whole food plant based diet and is passionate about health education, nutrition, and wellness.  Dr. Brangman believes that in order to live out the best version of yourself, you must be in good health. She also believes that for the best results,  non-pharmacologic methods for managing chronic diseases must be incorporated into the treatment plan rather than using prescription drugs alone. She incorporates nutrition prescriptions, exercise prescriptions, mindfulness based stress reduction, and also focuses on the emotional and social aspect of wellness. She is passionate about inspiring others to be the best version of themselves inside and out so that they can walk in their God given purpose. Dr. Brangman also believes that the world would be a happier and a more peaceful place if more people were in optimum health and walking in their unique purpose. Dr. Brangman enjoys travelling internationally, learning about different cultures, cooking, outdoor activities, and spending time with family.

"I love how Dr. Brangman is so committed to bringing awareness to plant based lifestyles. It's not often that you find a MD that helps people to understand that in certain situations medications are necessary, but you have other options with food also."
