Why I became a Naturopathic Doctor:
Before I became a Naturopathic Doctor, I worked in the conventional model for many years. I soon realized there was a gaping hole in patient care. Not enough was being done to prevent chronic disease and promote a healthy lifestyle. This bothered me. Compelled to do something about it and with the desire stirring within to jump back into school, I returned to undergrad to complete my degree in public health. As I was getting ready to decide what to do post-graduation, I happened to open a health book and there in front of me was the first time I read the words Naturopathic Doctor. I was like, “what, no way, is this for real…okay I need to google this.” And that is what I did… all day long. I’ll never forget the day Naturopathic Medicine called me. Determined to make a difference and inspired by the Naturopathic philosophy, I moved forward and enrolled in Naturopathic medical school.
In medical school, I was privileged to work under some of the most experienced Naturopathic Doctors in the profession. With their guidance, I began to learn the art, science, and practice of Naturopathic Medicine and, eventually, my focus became general family medicine, women’s, and digestive health, as well as environmental medicine. At the same time, my growing conviction that holistic health is for everyone led me to work within low-income clinics in Phoenix and with the underserved in Mexico.
What I love about Naturopathic medicine is that it can serve a diversity of people from all walks of life, benefit people’s health and effectively address the gaping hole by how it is integrative in its approach.
I look forward to becoming your partner in health!
