Prior to becoming a naturopathic doctor, I enjoyed a fulfilling career as a K-12 teacher. During that time, I earned Masters’ degrees in Special Education and Language and Literacy, which were the focus of my instruction. As a teacher, I witnessed first-hand how education and good health can greatly improve the lives of individuals, families, communities, and countries.
After teaching for twelve years, I decided to pursue a childhood dream of working in the field of medicine. During my teen years, I noticed the benefits of good nutrition, exercise, and holistic therapies on my own health. This ignited my interest in integrative medicine, and I spent many decades exploring the topic. After seeing a naturopathic doctor as a patient, I realized that the principles of naturopathic medicine were in alignment with my personal beliefs about health and healing. Feeling inspired, I went back to school and received my doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University.
I am committed to working collaboratively with patients on their wellness journey. I apply naturopathic principles to both acute and chronic conditions by investigating the root causes of disease, removing obstacles to cure, utilizing the least invasive interventions, empowering patients through education, establishing foundations of health, and addressing the patient’s mind, body, spirit, and environment. To optimize patient health and facilitate life-long wellness, I integrate naturopathic and conventional therapies to create individualized treatment plans. The modalities I use include laboratory testing, botanical medicine, nutrient therapy, nutrition, movement, physical medicine, mind-body medicine, lifestyle counseling, and pharmaceuticals when necessary. I have received additional training in functional medicine, biofeedback, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, and yoga.
My personal and professional achievements would not be possible without the help of others. I am continuously inspired by the many teachers and mentors that have generously shared their expertise and guidance. I am also immensely grateful to my family and friends for their steadfast love and support throughout my life.
My family and I have lived in multiple states and countries, partially due to my marriage to a military officer. We feel fortunate to be settled in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the Edmonds’ community. My greatest joy is spending time with my husband, two sons, and our entertaining pets. I also enjoy traveling abroad, basking on sunny beaches, and sharing delicious meals with loved ones.
