Your health is your most important asset. Look good and feel great with functional medicine’s sustainable approach.

The Longevity Functional Medicine Difference

Our Founders, Dr. Pavlovic and Shawnee Starr are deeply invested in the concept of helping individuals improve their health in a sustainable way that addresses the root cause of disease and helps them heal and recover so that they can live a life of optimal health and wellness.

Dr. Pavlovic D.O. has years of experience in functional medicine and chiropractic care. He spent many years as a Director of Hospice, where he refined his bedside manner and gained compassion for those in pain. Dr. Pavlovic witnessed firsthand how traditional medicine failed patients and recognized the missed opportunities to turn their health around using alternative medicine. Today, Dr. Pavlovic is on a mission, fueled by his experiences, compassion, and understanding to combine cutting-edge technology and holistic medicine so his patients can enjoy life to the fullest in optimal health.

Shawnee Starr is a Motivational Educator and Lifestyle Coach. Her most motivating role is as a breast cancer survivor who healed herself through unconventional means. Shawnee centered her healing around lifestyle change, reducing her intake of toxins, ensuring her hormones were balanced, improving her nutritional absorption, and reducing her stress levels. These methods allowed her to heal, regenerate, and thrive. Today she wears the crown of a breast cancer survivor with pride.

These two individuals come together as a powerhouse duo, looking to help others who are ready to take the next step and commit to a healthier lifestyle and wellness plan, with the outcome being optimal health and longevity. Working alongside a team of nutritionists, therapists, and doctors, they treat various health concerns and chronic diseases by combining functional & holistic medicine.

Ashley Melchiorre

Nurse Practitioner

Ashley is a family nurse practitioner who joined Longevity in 2022. She specializes in men’s health and hormone replacement, advanced chronic disease management, and hospice care. While working in chronic disease management and providing care at the end of life, Ashley was frustrated by the number of pharmaceuticals her patients were on, yet they still felt largely unwell. She advocates for reducing polypharmacy in her patients and improving quality of life by focusing on helping them feel good while reducing disease burden; or, in the best case, preventing it! Investigating the root cause of symptoms is one of the many subjects that Ashley is passionate about, which is unfortunately not taught mainly in traditional western medical schools. Frustrated by the theory of “a pill for an ill,” she met Dr. Pavlovich and Shawnee and joined forces with Longevity Care Clinic! She is now practicing traditional medicine, focusing on hormone balance, lifestyle coaching, and functional therapies for the best comprehensive and integrative care.

Ashley’s educational experience is from Florida State University, where she obtained her Bachelor’s degree in nursing in 2014. She then worked as an emergency department nurse in South Florida, where she grew up. While working as a nurse, she advanced her education by obtaining her master’s degree in nursing from Simons University in 2019 and moved to colorful Colorado to have a Mountain View and many outdoor adventures with her family.
