An East St. Louis native, Dr. January completed medical school in Ohio but returned home for residency training at Mercy Hospital. Shortly after, she began her thriving OB/GYN practice at Betty Jean Kerr People’s Health Centers in North County. Along with her focus on women’s health, Dr. January created 'text coaching,' a fitness program featured in Gazelle Magazine, the St. Louis Argus, and on Fox 2; co-founded Pavlov’s Wellness Firm, a company focused on instituting health and wellness in small businesses and large corporations; and began a health and wellness podcast, "The Wellness Wheel." She was also recently chosen as the physician for All Among Us, a new not-for-profit in Ferguson providing opportunities for homeless women to become self-sufficient.
Beyond this work, Dr. January is passionate about youth mentorship. She has been a mentor — or rather, a coach — for more than ten years, helping young adults set achievable goals and ensuring their success by teaching time management and other fundamental skills.
My name is Derek Christopher, and I am a board-certified family nurse practitioner, born and raised here in St. Louis, MO. I started my career as a registered nurse nine years ago in an acute care setting on the kidney/liver transplant floor at Barnes Jewish Hospital. While transplant was my home, I also worked in many different areas of the hospital from time to time, even including a small stent in the emergency room. Having gained that overall experience, I began to realize that while I loved helping people get better, I more so wanted to help prevent people from getting sick, which is what led me to become passionate about getting involved in health promotion and prevention. I wanted more than to help treat a short hospital stay, I wanted to help treat a full lifespan.
That being said, I jumped back into school, and in 2016, I graduated with my nurse practitioner degree from Maryville University. I soon thereafter embarked on a journey across the country to Nevada to begin my new career working in family medicine in a rural clinic. While there, I became introduced to the world of aesthetics and later obtained certification in both BOTOX® and dermal fillers. Now, back in this great ole city of St. Louis, my mission, should you choose, isn’t for YOU to be the person I think you should be but to help you be the person YOU want YOU to be.
