About Me

While in medical school, I developed a passion for aesthetics and naturopathic dermatology because I saw a need that was not filled by traditional dermatologist. Patients wanted more treatment options for common skin complaints which was easily treated with naturopathic therapies. Then, throughout my medical career, I dealt with many health hardships including hormone imbalance and stomach complaints. All of these experiences give me a unique understanding of what my patients experience, and lead me to develop protocols to help them achieve optimal wellness.

My Story

I was born and raised in Northern California. I distinctly remember the moment I decided I wanted to be a doctor. I was 12 years old and my mother briefly mentioned, “you should be an eye doctor, people will always need their eyes checked.” If only she knew the power of her words. This awoke a passion that I didn’t know could exist. For the next 8 years, I explored all areas of medicine.

I graduated high school 2 years early and while in College, I was able to become the president of my Pre-medical Club. There I shadowed medical doctors, doctor of osteopathic medicine, surgeons, doctors in private practice etc. These were all wonderful experiences, and it just fueled my passion further that medicine was right for me.

While I felt like I found my purpose in life, my health declined. I gained around 80 pounds, I was in an unhealthy relationship, and I felt like no matter what I tried, I couldn’t recover. This is when I made the decision to change my lifestyle. I was able to lose 100 pounds and my health improved rapidly.

I graduated college and I decided to take a gap year before applying for medical school. During this year, I was able to work as a scribe in the ER and I witnessed the truth behind the conventional medical world. I would see the same returning patients with chronic disease that never got relief. I thought working in medicine was going to be about helping patients recover from illness but I quickly realized was that the conventional medical world was about symptom relief. I thought there had to be a better way. This is when I found Naturopathic medicine. This field is about melding the conventional medical world with the traditional forms of therapies to allow the body to recover. This was exactly what I was looking for, and I knew it was the right path for me.

While my journey to health was very turbulent, yours doesn’t have to be. As a physician, I will always strive to not only find the root cause of your health concern, but also give you solutions to fix them. The wonderful nature of naturopathic medicine is that we have many tools, and we are not confined to only one option. If you are ready to take that journey with me, let’s make a tailored health plan to get you feeling better today.
