Zachary Williams, FNP-C is, quite possibly, the loudest and proudest member of the Fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2017. After graduating from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences, he achieved his Bachelor of Science in Nursing from U.T. Health Science Center-Houston in 2018. Zach received his Masters of Science in Nursing from UTMB-Galveston in December 2022 and is now a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner and actively seeking certification with the Institute for Functional Medicine. In his career, he worked in pediatric cardiology intensive care, adult intensive care, general pediatrics, and on an adult COVID ward as a registered nurse.
Unsettled by his experiences as a nurse, especially in working with adults suffering from COVID, Zach recognized that often medical providers do not address the root cause of illness nor treat their patients as people. He began to see functional medicine as the best way for people to achieve optimal wellness, not just manage symptoms. Seeking both a place he could practice functional medicine and help children, finding Hope for Healing and Dr. Paula Kruppstadt was a God-send. He is excited to serve people by providing care he believes in passionately and to continue learning each day to better serve his patients.
Zach has a beautiful wife, who inspired him to pursue functional medicine, and two wonderful children, a girl and boy. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing basketball (or any sport for that matter), and cheering on the Aggies, win or lose.
Zach is honored to learn from and be mentored by Dr. Kruppstadt and everyone at Hope for Healing. He offers primary care for patients of all ages at Hope for Healing.
