My life’s inspiration to be of service to others was born at an early age. As a child I had recurring dreams of being able to fly, while saving people or protecting them from harm. Though I have since stopped flying (sadly), I’ve never lost that young girl’s aspirations to facilitate and inspire others on journeys to wellness and safety.
In this lifetime, I have chosen to serve as a teacher, personal fitness trainer and coach, massage therapist and now a doctor of naturopathic medicine. All the work I choose to do, is my activism, in a matrix I’d like to see turn on it’s head.
There are times in which, as a naturopathic physician, I am confronted by the system’s resistance. But I have hope nonetheless as I can see an awakening in the general populace for deeper, meaningful healing. It inspires me to continue to show up and do the work that I know we are all here to do and that is to grow and be the best versions of ourselves both physically and spiritually.
Mother Teresa once said, “Humans don’t do great things, they do little things with great love.” That notion always resonated with me, in all my relationships, including those with my patients. Often times, it’s the little things that matter most because they are typically catalyzed by love, which to me is the most important medicine.
On the clinical side of things, my areas of focus are in mitigating a plethora of chronic imbalances such as cardiovascular disease, hormone imbalances, thyroid and adrenal insufficiency, inadequate gastrointestinal functioning, methylation defects, and nutritional deficiencies through oral and intravenous supplementation.
Additionally, as a massage therapist of 20 years and a believer in the medicinal power of touch, I offer deep tissue, pregnancy massage, injury and trigger point therapy.
I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York but left after graduating college to escape the cold, snowy weather.
Since then, I’ve explored and lived in many states and even a couple countries, which included work as a health educator in St. Georges, Grenada, serving as a United States Peace Corps volunteer.
At around the age of forty, I started naturopathic medical school at NUNM in Portland, Oregon.
I’ve recently relocated to Seattle, WA after completing a two-year residency program at the Cameron Wellness Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, where I received training in intravenous administration, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) testing and treatment and bioidentical hormone replacement (BHRT).
I am grateful to be here and I look forward to working with you in providing a safe space for us to explore your story.
