ONE SKY FAMILY MEDICINE

PHILOSOPHY | BACKGROUND

I am proud and honored to join the team at One Sky Family Medicine and the Seattle Healing Arts Community. My desire to help others has played an influential role in my life from the time I was a young child. My dream of becoming a pediatrician, just like my grandfather, began when I was 5 years old. I coined myself "The Helper" and made business cards to hand out to the neighbors by the age of 7.

As I wanted to apply a holistic approach to patient care, I obtained my medical training from Bastyr University. I received both my Naturopathic Doctorate and also a Certificate in Naturopathic Midwifery. After graduation I was board certified in Washington State and earned the title of Certified Professional Midwife, which is a national credential.

I have been privileged to assist in the care hundreds of patients and in the delivery of over 100 infants in the United States and abroad, including Nicaragua and Vanuatu.

I firmly believe in the naturopathic principles and practice an integrative approach that utilizes conventional treatments when appropriate. The principles I identify with most are to identify and treat the cause and treat the whole person. I listen with compassion and appreciate each person's unique story. My goal is to create an individualized treatment plan with the patient that will work best for them.

Trained as a primary care physician, my main interests include women's health, maternal, neonatal, and pediatric medicine. I adore working with children and also have a strong interest in emotional health and well-being.

I am a devoted mother and feel very blessed to be enjoying life with my partner Billy (of over 10 years) and our energetic and loving Kindergarten age son and toddler daughter. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, camping, spending time outdoors, photography, and most of all my family.

I am accepting new patients and look forward to meeting and assisting you and your family.
