Welcome to Essential Family Medicine

Meet Lori

It has been my goal since early childhood to work in the medical field, and as a lifelong Shelbyville resident my desire has always been to stay within my community. After graduating from Shelbyville Central High School in 1999, I pursued a career in Nursing completing my RN degree from Motlow State Community College. I worked locally as a RN while completing my my Master’s Degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2006. After working closely with Dr. Lana Beavers, MD for several years, my practice was opened in November 2011 and I am looking forward to serving my local community for many years.
