About Me: I have been a naturopathic physician for more than 15 years. I received my naturopathic medical degree from Bastyr University in 2002 and continued my training at SCNM where I completed a two-year family practice residency. I am also a registered herbalist and share my expertise in this area through teaching classes in botanical materia medica and bringing students to North Carolina each summer to study plant medicine. I treat adolescents and adults with acute and chronic illness using nutrition, supplementation, botanical medicine and diet/lifestyle counseling.

What inspired you to be a doctor: My passion for nutrition and botanical medicine and wanting to help patients make positive changes in their lives.
