Natural Elements Medicine came about in 2011 after moving back from New Mexico, where I taught and gave practicing medicine my first try.
Once established in the Albany community, I've had the opportunity to work with people in treating different diagnoses such gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, fibromyalgia, asthma, and hormone imbalances using botanical medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, hydrotherapy, physical medicine, pharmacology and more recently Reiki and other energy medicine modalities.
I've also been staff at La Clinica de Guadalupe in Salem since 2022.
2023 Gave way to new experiences with the opportunity to serve as a board member both for the OANP, and the OBNM, which has given me a broader view of the naturopathic profession as a whole. Since then, I've been more involved in the work of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within our profession - which is a point of passion for me - not just in my profession, but in how we deliver service to our patients.
When I'm not engaging in "doctor-y" activities, I enjoy being with my family, reading, drawing and engaging in different outdoor activities (depending on the weather and locale) and enjoying my relationships with the elements within, and without.
