Ashtin Miraglia, FNP-C, MSN

Nurse Practitioner

Ashtin Miraglia is a Family Nurse Practitioner, wife, and your biggest cheerleader. She received her Master of Science in Nursing degree from The University of North Georgia and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Piedmont University.

Ashtin has been practicing in the medical profession for over 6 years. She began her nursing career in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit caring for the smallest of patients. From there, she transitioned into Urgent Care, where she learned a vast array of skills geared towards patients of all ages. While she enjoyed both specialties, her goal has always been to heal patients through Functional Medicine. She feels this is where she is able to make the most positive impact in her patient’s lives. 

As a functional medicine patient of over 14 years herself, she understands how important it is to identify the root cause and create a personalized plan specific for each patient. She is passionate about helping her patients feel their best and exceed their health and wellness goals. Realizing the difference Functional Medicine can make at an early age, Ashtin has a special interest in the school-age population.  

When Ashtin is not seeing patients at STAT Wellness, she is spending time with her husband, family, and friends, seeking out new, healthy restaurants around Atlanta, or heading to the beach for some rest and relaxation!



How do you stay healthy with a busy schedule?

Weekly meal prep/planning is a lifesaver: Every Sunday I plan my meals for the week and get all of the grocery shopping done. Having a plan makes my life a lot easier during the week because it saves me time, energy, and money! I enjoy having smoothies for breakfast during the week because you can pack so many veggies, fruits, proteins, fats, and other nutrients into them. I will make an entire batch of smoothies Sunday evening and freeze them. The night before I will put one in the fridge, so it is thaw by the time I am ready for breakfast in the morning. For lunches, I prep those the night before while cooking dinner. I find that if I can do both at one time it makes it feel like less of a “chore”.  

Prioritizing daily movement/exercise: It is hard to find the time for extra activities in a busy schedule, but I intentionally make time for daily movement/exercise! I sit a lot during the day, so the movement outside of work is so important for my body and mind. I like to incorporate at least 30 minutes of stretching, strength, or walking into my daily routine. I have recently gotten into 30 minute full-body YouTube workouts. These are nice because they are quick, convenient, and get you moving!

Prioritize sleep: Sleep has always been an important one for me! I feel my best mentally and physically with 7+ hours of sleep! Not to mention, sleep is the best time for your body to rest and recover, so why not make it a priority? If I get behind on my sleep during the week, I definitely make sure to catch up on the weekends!

If you could eat one cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

That’s an easy one….Mexican for sure, there are so many different options to choose from, it is an easy one to cook at home, and you can make it so fresh and healthy. My favorite at-home Mexican meal is either a taco salad, fajitas, or enchiladas all paired with some homemade guacamole! 

What’s your favorite healthy snack?

I love apples with almond butter….and sometimes chocolate chips if it’s for dessert! It is such a filling, easy snack. 

Can you share something about yourself with us we may not know?

I love to dance….a good, upbeat playlist is all I need! 

Do you have a favorite inspirational podcast or book?

You’ll have to check back with me on this one! I am just now starting to get into podcasts 🙂 

What’s your all time favorite song to work out to?

This is a hard one because I have so many, but I would have to say “Numb/Encore” by Jay-Z and Linkin Park……it always takes me back to high school lacrosse game days and to this day is a song that will still get me HYPED!!

Tell us how you first go interested in health and wellness.

Well…I grew up with a mom who was a personal trainer, fitness instructor, and now health coach….it was kind of inevitable ;). My sister and I still laugh about being the only kids at the elementary school bus stop with our healthy breakfast protein shakes while everyone else enjoyed their Pop-Tarts. Even though we give her a hard time, I am super thankful my mom instilled health and wellness into my life from the start. 

As for Functional Medicine, I became interested in high school after such a positive experience as a patient myself! I enjoyed someone taking the time to truly listen, identify the root cause, and actually helping me feel my best self after many years of suffering! I knew then my dream was to become a Functional Medicine provider and make the same difference in other’s lives! 


What is your spirit animal and why?

I would have to say a sea turtle because I absolutely love the beach, the ocean, and love their relaxed state!
