I have always had a deep respect for nature and the innate wisdom of the human body. We are intimately intertwined with our environment and community, and the health of one impacts the others. Improving our own health positively influences our community and the next generation. I earned my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine from the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. I have a special interest in working with digestion/gastroenterology, endocrinology, women’s health including fertility, and pediatric health.
