My career as a naturopathic physician is inspired by my background in ecology, a love of science and the natural world, and my own struggles with chronic health issues. As someone who loves exploring the complexities of natural systems, naturopathic medicine allows me to view personal health as an ecosystem, influenced by myriad factors, from nutrition and lifestyle to emotional and community health and everything in between. This complexity feeds my endless curiosity. I enjoy diving deep into research to better understand the ins and outs of how our bodies function and the ways in which we can influence our own health and the health of the communities in which we live.
I strive to bring this enthusiasm into my appointments with patients, helping them understand their health and the ways in which they can make changes to meet their health goals. As someone who often felt disempowered during the early years of my own health journey, I recognize the healing that comes from putting the power into the patient’s hands. I am here to help guide and support but know that it is the patient who is doing the hard work of healing, and I feel lucky to get to be with them on their journey.
When not in the office you can find me exploring nature, making herbal concoctions, snuggling up with a good book, and chipping away at building a small homestead with my partner, our cats, bunny, and flock of sheep.
