She worked in private practice in Flemington, NJ for nearly a decade as a family physician with the main focus on OBGYN, newborn care and pediatrics.

After relocating to the greater Sacramento area in 2011, she started working with The Permanente Medical Group in the department of Women’s Health in Folsom. Her special interests include Health and Wellness for patients and their caretakers alike.

Dr. Hoette has been an integral part of the Physician Health and Wellness Committee at TPMG since 2016. Through her work on this committee, she is able to raise awareness of physician burnout and help physicians utilize mindfulness practices to strengthen their resilience.

Since medical school, Dr. Hoette has had a special interest in nutrition and how to optimize one’s health and wellness through eating well and exercising. As a teaching faculty member of the UC Davis ACE-PC program, she hopes to teach these practices to her medical students early in their career.

Dr. Hoette lives in El Dorado Hills with her husband and two teen age daughters. They enjoy spending the winter on the Tahoe ski slopes and the rest of the year on their bikes or on hikes.

Break-Out Speaker – Kassy Clifford

Kassy is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach whose journey to wellness began 25+ years ago when our oldest child was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 3. Then, ten years later, with the adoption of our 3 youngest children (who came from severe trauma). And finally, after my diagnosis of an autoimmune disorder, 7 years ago. It is my goal to share my experience and hope with others who suffer.

Unlike a dietician or conventional nutritionist, I encourage each of my clients to look at all areas of their life. Being healthy has so much more to do with just the food we eat. In addition to a healthy, well-rounded diet, we will explore relationships, career and spirituality, and how these areas of our lives play a role in our overall health and wellness.
