What led me here?
I would like to briefly share with you how I came to be a naturopathic doctor. I grew up in the beautiful hills of Marin County, spending a lot of time exploring outside. As a child, I fell off a play structure onto my head and neck, causing damage to some of the nerves in my face. For many months, the muscles on one side of my face didn't work. My parents chose to have me treated with acupuncture and chiropractic therapies, and those muscles began to work again. My family placed a lot of value in eating wholesome, organic foods and living a healthy lifestyle. Those habits stuck with me and have made me question a lot of the practices of conventional medicine as I began to become aware of them. I took part in a specialized, intensive environmental science curriculum in high school and continued to nurture a love of science and nature. I received my Bachelor of Science in biology with an emphasis in genetics from University of Oregon. During that time I was particularly inspired by the study of human health. I found (and still find) the complexity and elegance of human physiology to be astounding and inspiring. I fell in love with medicine, but I knew that the conventional medical model would not satisfy my need to understand and address the root causes of disease. I wanted more tools to work with than pharmaceutical medications and surgery, and I felt that in many cases drugs and surgery are too invasive. I wanted tools to restore health, not just to mask symptoms of disease. I knew there must be gentler ways to address common every day medical complaints!
I feel so blessed to have found naturopathic medicine. It is a true system of healing and I feel lucky to get to accompany my patients on their journey to reclaim their health.
