I am a graduate of Bastyr University in Seattle, WA, one of the top accredited naturopathic medical institutions conferring the four-year Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree necessary for licensure as a naturopathic doctor (ND). I left a comfortable but unfulfilling career in finance to pursue a life-long interest in health and wellness and chose naturopathic medicine for its patient-centered philosophy and sustainable healthcare model.
In addition to being a licensed naturopathic doctor, I have a Certificate in Gerontology through the University of Washington for which I was awarded the H. Asuman Kiyak Endowed Student Support Fund Scholarship. I am also a contributing author to the first integrative geriatrics textbook, Integrative Geriatric Medicine, available as part of the Andrew Weil Integrative Library.
I am a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the California Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Gerontological Society of America.
