Our Founding Practitioner

Marsha Cayton is a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (Primary Care) with over 20 years of healthcare experience in a variety of settings.  You can read more about her background here.

After years of practicing in medical and mental health, Marsha noticed that we are relying on medications to treat patients and they continue to get sicker and sicker.  She did not feel like we were actually healing children.  She was blessed to discover functional medicine which led her to starting SEE Alternatives Pediatrics in 2017, first as home visits on Seabrook and Kiawah, then expanding to a one room micropractice on Johns Island, and now to a full practice with multiple providers serving the Charleston area.

Marsha moved to the Charleston area with her husband, Larry, in 2017 and loves being surrounded by the beauty of the low country on a daily basis.  In addition to enjoying the area, in her “free” time, Marsha enjoys reading, learning, and growing.
