Dr. Arrieta grew up in Texas and was called to medicine as a young child. During her first two years of medical school at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, she often felt there was "something else" to medicine that she wasn't learning. She discovered after meeting a mentor that the "something else" she was searching for was Integrative and Functional Medicine. She decided to stay at Texas Tech in Amarillo for her Family Medicine residency where she could continue to work with her mentors and study Integrative Medicine in Residency through the University of Arizona Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine while also learning Functional Medicine. After graduating residency and becoming board certified in Family Medicine, she completed a two-year fellowship in Integrative Medicine through the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIHM). She went on to achieve board certification in Integrative Medicine through the American Board of Physician Specialties.
