Mavis Hodges, PA-CPhysician Assistant
Born and raised in Virginia's Blue Ridge, Mavis grew up loving nature and spending time outdoors. After experiencing health issues at a very young age, she set out to find answers for herself, and subsequently, felt called to be in the healthcare field in order to help others as well. Once completing undergraduate studies at James Madison University, Mavis attended Shenandoah University's PA program.
She spent over four years of her PA career practicing family medicine and women's health in NJ before transitioning to Optimal Bio. Through both patient and personal experiences, she understands the importance of a healthy lifestyle and strongly believes that food is our best medicine.
Following her passion for nutritional wellness, she completed a Certificate of Graduate Studies in Nutrition Science from Tufts University and pursued studies in functional medicine and nutrition through The Institute for Functional Medicine. She is currently seeing patients at both the Cary and Southern Pines offices.
