Practitioner Story

There is nothing more important than health, whether it is your own wellbeing or that of those you love. That is why I cherish the opportunity I have to help people on their path to optimal health.

From a young age I recognized that medicine was the perfect career for me. However, I could not have foreseen the career path that would eventually bring me to where I am today. You see, the further I progressed through undergraduate studies and my pre-med program the more I grew in my curiosity of integrative medicine. My study abroad experience in Kenya and my anthropology coursework helped nudge my focus toward a more holistic view of medicine. This personal transition towards naturopathic medicine became more complete as an intern at Columbia University’s Center for Complementary Medicine and as a volunteer at a traditional healthcare center in Quito, Ecuador.

I was drawn to Naturopathic medical school because I view our conventional healthcare system as incomplete. By practicing naturopathic medicine I have an opportunity to use time-tested remedies in ways that avoid the complications and unintended consequences inherent in conventional medicine. In my own family I have seen the raw reality of conventional medicine’s prevalent pitfall: treating symptoms rather than curing disease. Often times our healthcare system muffles the expression of a disease rather than return our loved ones to healthy living. This is the core of my medical practice: to support the innate healing ability of the human body with natural, low-risk interventions that restore your inner vitality.
