I am a graduate of Bastyr University, Seattle, Washington. It was there that I earned a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine degree and Certificate of Naturopathic Midwifery. I am certified as a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) by the North American Board of Naturopathic Examiners. I am licensed in Washington state as a midwife (MW00000299) and Naturopathic Physician (NT00001397). 


After practicing Naturopathic Medicine and Midwifery in Minnesota for two years, I decided to return to the Seattle area. I opened my practice in Lynnwood in September of 2006 while five months pregnant with my son.  Raising a child and starting a new practice was challenging but I seemed to find balance between the two! I also served as adjunct faculty at Bastyr University teaching classes such as Clinical Laboratory Diagnosis, Normal Maternity, and Prenatal Complications. In 2010, I entered full-time practice.


I love what I do.  I feel very passionate about naturopathic medicine and midwifery.  I feel very strongly that people should have choices in their health care and that they should be given the correct information to make those choices. 


In my practice I draw on my education, personal experience, and experience gained from others to provide you with the most up-to-date and accurate information.  If I don't know the answers, I will do my absolute best find them.


For all of my clients, I follow the basic principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

  • Vis medicatrix naturae (the healing power of nature)

  • First, do no harm

  • Find the cause

  • Treat the whole person

  • Preventative medicine

  • Doctor as teacher
