Biography

I am a Naturopathic Doctor focusing on natural family wellness and pediatric care. My passion is educating, empowering and supporting my patients on their journey. I utilize natural remedies including herbs, nutrients, homeopathy, dietary counseling and lifestyle modifications to help my patients achieve true and lasting health. I offer wellness visits and check-ups, care for acute illness and care for chronic complex disease. I listen carefully to each patient’s story and work to find the cause of disease, rather than just suppressing symptoms.

 

After 6 years of medical school and 5 years of primary care family practice in Seattle, I have finally realized my dream of bringing natural medicine back home to coastal Carolina.

 

I grew up in Wilmington and discovered a deep respect for the natural world in the creeks and waterways near my home. I was awarded my Bachelors degree in Biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1995. After this, I spent many years in California studying natural health and herbalism under the guidance of many leaders in the field. In 2001, I started my formal medical training at Bastyr University. I was awarded my Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine in 2007.
After graduating from Bastyr Unversity, I worked for 5 years as a primary care family physician at Naturopathic Family Medicine in Seattle, Washington. It was an absolute honor serving the Seattle community in this capacity and I enjoyed watching families grow and thrive under my care. As my own family grew, so did the desire to return home. In the summer of 2012, I bid farewell to Seattle and brought my family back to Wilmington.
I am Board Certified by the North American Board of Naturopathic Examiners (NABNE) and licensed as a primary care physician in Washington state. Currently, 16 states and the District of Columbia allow for the licensure of Naturopathic Doctors as primary care general practice physicians. Naturopathic Doctors in North Carolina are actively working toward licensure in our state and legislation is currently pending in the NC House and Senate.

 

What does this mean for my patients? It means that I must work within North Carolina law while also bringing you excellent Naturopathic care. I am developing close relationships with local Medical Doctors who are open to Integrative medicine and willing to order labs and write prescriptions for my patients when needed. I am absolutely committed to finding creative ways to bring Naturopathic and Integrative medicine to the Wilmington community.

 

I am currently available for consultation at my office near Wrightsville Beach. I also offer house calls for my established patients. My fees are $160 for a 60-minute first visit and $40-$120 for 15- to 45-minute return visits. Visit length depends on acute or chronic issue and complexity. Please contact me for more information and to schedule an appointment. I look forward to working with you!
