Introducing New Staff at Family to Family

In an effort to serve our patients more effectively and efficiently, we have recently added three new staff.


C. Andi Locke Mears – Practice Manager

rsz_andi_sittingMy husband and I moved to Asheville last year to be closer to family including two wonderful grandchildren.  I have run several successful businesses including my own holistic wellness center in Auburn, ME, and the Before/After School Childcare Centers in the Auburn School Department.  I have been a holistic practitioner for over 20 years and have a B.S. degree in Business Administration and a M.A. degree in Peace & Humane Studies from the University of Maine.

My role is to support the doctors, the staff, and particularly our patients so they have an enriching experience at Family to Family.  My door is always open for feedback – both positive and growth-oriented.  I also consider myself very fortunate to be part of Family to Family and I look forward to getting to know you!


Jess Alexander – Clinic Assistant

rsz_jess_on_stepsI am very happy to be a member of the Family to Family team.  I recently moved here with my family from Portland, OR, where I was a medical receptionist at several holistic medical clinics for 7 years including the Center for Natural Medicine. My 2 yr old daughter, Eva Luna, is the center of my world.  We are very happy living here in Asheville, as it allows us to be closer to our families in Michigan.  I have a strong interest in natural healing and our connection to the earth.  I am an avid bicyclist, environmentalist, and very interested in yoga, hiking, herbs and vegan cooking.


Kendra Kelly – Office Assistant

rsz_kendra_-_nice (1)I am originally from Orlando, Florida, but have grown up in Asheville and call it home. I have been married six years to my very best friend. We are very involved with our church, and we love to spend each Christmas in Nicaragua volunteering with an orphanage there. My background is in nursing, and although I am not fully pursuing my nursing career now, I love the medical field and am looking forward to working and growing here at Family to Family.
