I've known that I wanted to practice Naturopathic medicine from the time I was 10 years old. I knew that I wanted to work with people of all ages, from babies and children to adults and the elderly. And I knew that teaching people to care for their own bodies and use natural medicines to heal themselves rather than relying on pills and procedures was the path for me. 


My goal is to work with patients who are looking for a holistic approach to their healthcare. I'm here to offer my experience and expertise along with providing support and coaching so I get very excited to work with patients who know they are ready to make a change and ready to put their well-being as their top priority.



After graduating from the University of Portland with a degree in Life Sciences and Psychology, I went straight to the National University of Natural Medicine. 4 years of classes and clinic time, 2 sets of board exams, 2 years of Women's Health focused specialization, and 1 year of full time Family Medicine residency later I opened my private practice. 


Outside of practicing medicine, I'm a daughter, wife, sister and friend. I'm blessed to have many amazing people in my life who help me give my best every day to my patients. My husband and I love to travel (New Zealand, Iceland, and Peru have been some of our favorite adventures) and prefer to take as many friends and family members as we can along with us. I've spent many a rainy Pacific NW afternoon curled up on the couch with a book (fiction, non-fiction, I'll read anything!) although I prefer to spend the sunny days outside hiking or exploring. I come from a family of foodies and love to try to new recipes and restaurants.
