Support Staff

Kristen Verea is an acupuncture student who joined the Encircle team in 2019. Serving our patients as a receptionist for our East Nashville location, Kristen loves making our patients feel welcome. She is currently studying for her boards in preparation to begin her career as an acupuncturist.

Growing up, Kristen dreamed of being a children’s book author. Her dream career changed over time, but her curious spirit stayed with her. Kristen has explored 18 countries, is an avid reader, and has even created her very own tea blend recipe.

Kristen and her husband, Albert, enjoy spending time with their new puppy, Cora. When she’s not in the office, you’ll find Kristen biking the Greenway in Bellevue, practicing Tai Chi, and playing with her niece and nephews.
