WHY I BECAME A NATUROPATHIC DOCTOR…
Growing up, the two things I loved the most were learning and playing sports. This led me down a career path toward physical therapy. That changed during my early 20s when I faced a health setback that left me feeling unheard and disappointed in our conventional healthcare system. That experience fueled my interest in learning about other forms of health care. Ultimately, naturopathic medicine felt like the missing piece to restoring health and I wanted to make that my career.
Another passion of mine is cooking, so naturally, I have gravitated toward learning as much as possible about nutrition. The way I see it, food is a foundation of health. I find that combining this knowledge with other components of naturopathic care is essential to maintaining well-being.
My goal with patients is to work as a team to optimize health.
You deserve to be heard, ask questions, find answers, and have an advocate during your health journey.
