About

I focus my practice on gastrointestinal health, hormonal imbalances and cardiovascular conditions. My philosophy is to get to the root cause of an ailment by asking the question, “why” is a symptom occurring in the body. The body is smart, and symptoms are a subtle (or not so subtle!) warning sign that something is wrong. By “finding the why” we can support the body’s natural healing ability using nutritional modification, botanical medicines, homeopathy, and lifestyle modification. My approach to naturopathic medicine is unique blend of modern medical science and natural therapeutics.

Education

I am a graduate of Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. During my time as a student I served as the national president for the Naturopathic Medical Student Association. I interned at the National Institutes of Health--National Institute of Digestive, Diabetes and Kidney disorders where I completed research on gut bacteria. Upon graduation and completion of national licensing examinations, I entered residency training as one of two NDs selected for the Integrative Therapeutics STAIR Residency in Wisconsin. During my time as a resident, I completed specialty rotations in gastroenterology, cardiology, and women’s medicine.
