When the pandemic lockdown began in March insurances relaxed their guidelines on telemedicine which allowed me to offer that service to my patients. I am currently using doxy.me for telemedicine appointments, which is a HIPAA compliant platform. While telemedicine has some drawbacks, I’m grateful to be able to offer this to my patients. For services that can not be done via telemedicine, we are doing everything we can to make your visit safe. We are cleaning all surfaces, we have air purifiers in our rooms, we are staggering patients, and of course, we are washing our hands and wearing masks. At some point insurance may change their guidelines on telemedicine, until that time we will continue to offer both telemedicine and in-office appointments for your healthcare needs.
Dr. Stephanie is a native Vermonter who grew up in Northfield, Vermont. She attended Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences in Boston, Massachusetts for her undergraduate degree in pharmacy. Having such an extensive base in prescriptions gives Dr. Stephanie a unique viewpoint in helping patients manage existing prescriptions and helping patients incorporate a more natural approach to their health. Dr. Stephanie continues to hold an active pharmacy license in Vermont.
After 20 years as a pharmacist, Dr. Stephanie was pulled to take her love of nature, her sense of spiritual philosophy, and her desire to play a more active role in teaching others to maintain/regain health, and find a new career path. She took a year off from working and traveled the southwest as well as spent time in Peru and Panama in the hopes of finding this new path.
It was at this time that Dr. Stephanie discovered Naturopathic Medicine and Philosophy and found her true calling. Dr. Stephanie earned her doctoral degree in Naturopathic Medicine from National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. After completeing her degree she returned to Central Vermont to begin her practice as a Naturopathic Primary Care Physician.
Dr. Stephanie continues her education of naturopathic modalities and principles by attending New England School of Homeopathy as well as attending conferences and continuing education programs.
In her spare time Dr. Stephanie enjoys hiking with her dog Casper, kayaking, and reading.
