A Bit About Me
I have always wanted to do something in medicine after growing up with a mom who taught nursing. I am originally from the Detroit area and attended the University of Michigan-Dearborn earning a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a pre-medicine focus and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
During my time at U of M – Dearborn, my mom wrote a course on complementary medicine and told me there was a school in Seattle called Bastyr University and my life would forever be changed. Bastyr teaches a different kind of medicine called Naturopathy that focuses on the root cause of illness and not on symptoms only. Not only could I use my prescriptive rights to help my patients, but Naturopathic Doctors are also trained in botanical medicine, counseling, osteopathic manipulations, and other physical medicine techniques.
During medical school, I completed specialty rotations in counseling, diabetes and cardiovascular health, pain management, environmental medicine, adolescent medicine, mind-body medicine/biofeedback, underserved/homeless youth, and Digestive Health/SIBO. I completed elective courses in Kinesio Taping, STD treatment and prevention, mind-body/biofeedback, advanced diabetes and vascular disease, IV therapy, and a licensing course in massage therapy.
After graduating with my Naturopathic Doctorate from Bastyr, I completed a two year residency through the Institute for Natural Medicine at a group practice in Redmond, WA. In residency, I received one-on-one mentorship in men’s health, hormone replacement, injection therapy, IV therapy, and ozone therapy. I also completed my Board Certification in Biofeedback (BCB). After completing 2 years of residency, I joined the clinic as a full-time associate physician where I worked for an additional year before taking over ownership here at JNM.
My main focus is primary care with a special interest in bio identical hormone support, IV therapy, and physical medicine including injection therapy, both joint and soft tissue manipulation, and muscle energy stretching.
My goal is to really personalize health care and integrate all the naturopathic modalities, including pharmaceutical when needed, to meet you where you are at with your health needs.
I look forward to meeting you and working with you on optimizing your health and quality of life!
