Dr. Kristen Hollist

SpecialityCFO of Optimal Health Medical Center
BiographyDr. Kristen Hollist is determined to empower individuals to be in control of their health. In support of this purpose she co-founded Optimal Health Medical Center (OHMC), a full-service health center grounded in holistic care. Dr. Hollist believes that people in her community will benefit from a holistic approach to health, which is why the center focuses on preventative care, education and social support. Following the diagnosis of their oldest son who has sickle cell disease, Dr. Hollist and her husband committed themselves to finding solutions that will prevent complications and hospitalizations. Standard medical care didn’t provide enough preventative options; therefore, they modified their son’s lifestyle and nutrition to help support his body’s deficiencies. Having experienced the difficulties of navigating a convoluted healthcare system with little success, the pair was determined to empower other families and individuals by promoting holistic care options. OHMC is the fruition of that vision, providing clients with primary care, immediate care, pharmacy services and other ancillary services, all underneath one roof. OHMC also houses the Optimal Living Center, a unique preventative care education and resource hub where people can receive support in achieving their optimal health. A Miami Gardens native, Dr. Kristen Hollist pursued her Doctorate of Pharmacy degree at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Shortly after graduation, she relocated back home to Miami Gardens, FL and has since worked in different community pharmacy settings. Previous roles included serving as a pharmacy manager at an independent pharmacy and staff pharmacist for a national chain pharmacy. In these roles she gained experience and certifications in multiple specialties such as diabetes management, HIV management, consulting pharmacy and medication therapy management. Presently, Dr. Hollist is the Chief Financial Officer of Optimal Health Medical Center Inc. and President of Optimal Health Consultant LLC. She also serves as the President of Optimal Health Foundation, co-chair of the primary care sub-council of Live Healthy Miami Gardens and as a board member for Healing Blends Global.
