Nervana Medical was founded in 2021 by Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Cassandra (Cassie) Debenham. Cassie has over 15 years of experience in health care, primarily in intensive care medicine. She left in 2021, mentally and physically burned out after nearly 2 years of working in the COVID ICU.
Her heart has always been in medicine and her primary focus has and always will be, to do what’s right and best for the patient. She believes that what is best for the patient, requires a depth of understanding of each patient and their own specific health goals, concerns, limitations/strengths and weaknesses.
After working in the outpatient world the last few years, she began to find a bigger meaning and purpose for Nervana; a more meaningful healthcare experience for not only the patient but for the provider as well. No provider wants to be rushed in and out of rooms with back to back schedules and limited time to spend with the client to fully appreciate and understand them individually. Nervana strives to give this back to both the patients and the providers and we can only hope to be apart a transformation for the better in healthcare as a whole.
Traditional medicine and complementary/holistic therapies have seemed to stay their own entities with little success of integrating the two. We believe that a persons’ health and wellness is most successful with a combination of approaches and that a multi-modality, multi-disciplinary, individualized approach is what serves patients the best overall result.
We strive to incorporate our clients into the development of their plan for highest compliance and overall longevity of success while maintaining expectations and overall patient accountability.
We take the time to thoroughly explain and educate our clients and provide them with the necessary information for them to make their own informed decisions pertaining to their health; because at the end of the day, it’s their life and their decisions; and it is an honor to be given the opportunity to be apart of it and help them live their “best life”.
Our team is comprised of some of the best traditional medicine providers in the state with backgrounds in intensive care, emergency care, cardiology, thoracic surgery, flight medicine, and more!

Marketing/ Public Relations
I have been racing motocross for the past 17 years, it was my whole entire life and still is. Throughout my career I managed to achieve 52 national championships, 3 being at Loretta Lynn’s. At age 15 I was the first girl to be signed onto the KTM Orange Brigade team, shortly after that I raced Monster cup in the supermini Allstate making my debut for the KTM team. I love anything outdoors… mountain biking, snowboarding, sunsets etc. Racing will forever be a huge part of me, when I was 10 years old I had lost my best friend Tyce Olsen due to a racing accident, that is what kept me to drive myself more and more to succeed as much as I could that way I could accomplish for him what he was unable to! Now that I am not racing full time, I am currently working as a dental hygiene assistant and will be starting school in January to become a Dental Hygienist! I also have taken on the world of marketing and public relations with Nervana and only continue to learn more about their mission and vision and absolutely love what they are about! I am beyond grateful to have such an amazing opportunity to work with these amazing people!
