You cannot do for others unless you first prioritize yourself. While we hear that everywhere, Dr. Felecia Sumner is helping her patients and her family understand it at a whole new level. Listen as she shares her story and how she found her way to DPC.


It didn’t take long for Dr. Sumner to realize that a typical corporate practice was not the right fit for her or her family. After working in an understaffed clinic and finding herself sitting in her car, dreading the idea of going into work, she knew there had to be something different.


She created her own Direct Primary Care practice and set her family free from the bonds of corporate practice. She’s also an Amazon best-selling author and her book, Fill Your Cup, is all about properly caring for yourself first. Because it’s true, “you cannot pour from an empty cup.”


The change from corporate to direct has helped her keep a modicum of sanity in these crazy pandemic times, and has helped her be more present with her family. But her biggest reason for creating a DPC is that she is able to serve her patients and her community in a way that creates lasting health. 


She is a wellness strategist and is determined to get to the root cause of illness rather than prescribing medication after medication that impedes health. Listen and learn more about prioritizing your happiness for the benefit of others.


“You cannot pour from an empty cup. It’s really tough for you to give out to other people if you’re not feeding and replenishing and nourishing yourself.” Dr. Felecia Sumner
