The Woman behind Thrive Once More
CEO & Lead Physician
Dr. Anne Morgan
Dr. Anne Morgan is a Kansas City area native and a board-certified Emergency Medicine Physician. She graduated from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in 1999 and completed her residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Missouri Kansas City.
In 2015, Dr. Morgan partnered with Hollyday Aesthetics in Kansas City to provide medical direction as they expanded their services into medical aesthetics. Over the past five years she has been researching and continuing her education to develop a private practice to emphasize wellness and optimize patient’s health.
She has felt truly rewarded over the past 20 years serving patients in Emergency Medicine. However, she is passionate about health and wellness and is excited to pass on her training and guidance to help patients live their best lives. She has a special interest in hormone replacement and optimizing thyroid function for weight management and improving cardiovascular health. The name of her practice, Thrive Once More, really sums up her goal for her patients.
Dr. Morgan enjoys traveling, cooking, running and interior design. Most of all, she loves spending time with her two daughters and her dog, Leo.
A message from Dr. Morgan:
I have spent my life caring for my family, caring for patients, working many hours, nights and weekends in Emergency Medicine. For the first ten years of my post-graduate career, I felt like I was exactly where I needed to be. Yes, work was difficult, but it was challenging and rewarding. Over time, I began to feel exhausted. I was only in my early 40’s but my zest for life had disappeared. I suffered from migraines, anxiety and significant joint pain. I just kept going because I felt like I owed it to myself and my family to “keep on, keeping on”. I always tried to maintain what I thought was a healthy diet. I exercised regularly. But, I just continued to feel worse and worse. Eventually, I felt broken. Check-ups with my primary care doctor (who is wonderful by the way) revealed normal labs and terrific vital signs. I was “healthy”. I decided to reach out to my OB/GYN physician who was starting a practice in integrative medicine and utilizing bio-identical hormone replacement. It literally changed my life. Over time, with hormone help, thyroid optimization and a very honest look at my life and what I desired it to look like, I feel amazing. I feel better physically and mentally than I did 10 years ago.
Now, I am so pleased to be in a position to help people do the same! Traditional western medicine is invaluable. I felt very prepared after medical school and residency to tackle the big diseases that plague us all at one time or another. Diabetes, heart disease, injuries and broken bodies. But there is so much more to our health than our lab values and pillboxes. My passion is to help my patients in a completely different way than I have been blessed to do in the Emergency Department.
I look forward to connecting with you in the future if you’re interested in becoming a Thrive Once More patient. I want to discover your strengths and weaknesses and what your goals are for your health and well-being. I promise there will be no “hard sell” or bullying you into taking care of yourself. But when you are ready to feel vital and enjoy life more, I will be here to help you find your way there!
