My curiosity for the human body and human performance had its early roots when I started swimming at the age of five. My curiosity grew as I later participated in swimming, volleyball, rowing, tennis, powerlifting and bodybuilding. These interests fueled my passion to pursue a graduate education in Exercise Physiology that eventually led to a job as an Exercise Physiologist (EP) for the United States Air Force (USAF). I spent eight years working for the USAF and teaching and certifying personal trainers. Specifically, while working for the USAF, I had the privilege to assist active duty members and veterans by providing pre- and post-rehabilitation exercise therapy, nutritional counseling, wellness education and performance-based exercise training in a continuous effort to promote healthy living. I spent significant time researching how I could best assist the military members within the scope of my training. This strong desire for continuous learning and educating people about health, nutrition, and prevention of diseases served as the catalyst in my pursuit of naturopathic medicine.
Shortly after graduating from SCNM, I remained in Arizona where I taught pre-med courses at Grand Canyon University and practiced full-time in a naturopathic and integrative medical clinic.
Currently, I reside in the U.S Territory of Guam, where I joined my husband while he serves as an active duty for the USAF.
I am ready to dedicate myself to providing a broad and integrative approach to health and healing that can be transformative in my patients and clients’ lives both physically and emotionally.
