From Our Founders
Our story begins as two teenage girls, both searching for acceptance and belonging, striving to measure up. We had a brief encounter at the start of high school. Though we went our separate ways, our experiences left behind core beliefs about ourselves, others, and God that would later need to be unpacked.
Fast forward to the present: We continue our own health and healing journey today. We share our experience, strength, and hope with others. This is where our vision for Faithfully Guided was born.
Together, we laugh, learn, and lean in. Our journey is still going. We have learned firsthand how God uses it all: the good, the bad, and everything in between. Our bodies have kept the score, we both manage autoimmune conditions and take proactive measures in our health. We invite you to do the same on your journey to health. We need each other to take bold steps towards health so that we can ALL be who we were made to be and do the things we were made to do. In a healthy community, we can be called higher and held accountable for we were made to bring glory to Christ.
We would love for you to allow us to join you on your journey to health to abundant life. The rewards of being fully known and free are rich.
“As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” Proverbs 27:17
We invite you to explore our transformative history, a story that God continues to write today.
2011 – Faithfully Guided, 501c3, began as a pastoral counseling and educational outreach non-profit in Ocala, FL. God gave Jamie a vision of a team of people under one roof. She never would have guessed that vision would have included the creation of Faithfully Guided Health Center, LLC nearly 7 years later.
2014 – Ashlee and Jamie reconnected and the two visionaries joined forces through their faith, passion for health, and deep calling to help others. They began developing the model to treat the whole person, spirit, mind and body.
2017 – Ashlee and Jamie started practicing together and quickly noticed the interrelated needs that became obstacles to helping their clients achieve their health goals. Together they created Faithfully Guided Health Center, LLC to service clients collaboratively.
2018 – Together, with the help of their husbands, they purchased a downtown location with the plan to reconstruct a warehouse into a comprehensive health center designed to provide all services under one roof and ultimately improve the health of their community.
During this time, Faithfully Guided, 501c3 was repurposed into a foundation to offer sliding scale fees and provide access to all services. They began to develop a team of vision aligned clinicians and counselors to further their mission.
2021 – The foundation raised over 150,000 and 100% of employee contributions fund up to $6,000 a month in scholarships so that health does not have to be luxury.
Present day – This is more than a job. It is our mission and life’s purpose to help each person become who God has made them to be.
To guide you to abundant life.
To be the way.
