My path to become a Naturopathic Doctor became clear at an early age. As a kid I was doing checkups on the other neighbor kids and constantly in the woods, exploring the natural world. As a teen I was using the little money I got from allowance and working at the local coffee shop to buy my own organic foods and was fascinated with nutrition and health. I realized that I didn’t want to live the life society had put before me. I wanted something different but wouldn’t find that for nearly a decade.

The recession was a blessing in disguise for me. I was laid off from a job in online advertising that I enjoyed doing, was good at, and was making a good living in but it wasn’t fulfilling a deeper yearning inside me. I could have tried to find another job in that field but something inside me was pushing me to do something different. So I took a leap and applied to go back to school. I was accepted into Bastyr University’s nutrition program and that is where this beautiful journey began. I planned to go on to graduate school to study medicine but didn’t know that would mean staying at Bastyr. Once at Bastyr I learned about Naturopathic Medicine and instantly knew that was what I had been searching for and was what I was meant to be doing.

When I’m not seeing patients or blogging you can find me DIY-ing, researching environmental medicine, fertility and current and historical medicine trends, cooking and eating good food, and exploring the outdoors.


I’m an expert in natural medicine and you can feel confident engaging me to guide you toward health. Over the years, I have earned a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and a bachelor’s degree in nutrition. I have completed a 12 month internship in naturopathic family medicine and have done an 8 month residency in pediatrics and women's health.
