About This Blog

If you love health and wellness, find yourself looking up the latest health research, or are interested in what is taught at a four-year naturopathic medical school, you will feel right at home. Don’t know what a naturopath is yet? That’s ok too! Stick with me and look forward to a blog on the role of a naturopathic doctor (ND).

In this blog, you can follow me through naturopathic medical school at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, Toronto, ON, Canada, as I share my discoveries and rollercoaster ride of medical school. I will also share my own personal story with overcoming epilepsy with the help of a naturopath and neurologist.

I have over 14 years of experience as a reiki master and traditional naturopath. The school I am attending is a four-year, science and research-based, accredited naturopathic medical school. You can read more about CCNM here.

I was inspired to write this blog after listening to other NDs incredible experiences in the field and their urgings for me to get my experience with the natural path out there. I owe my deep inspiration to the traditional naturopath, Belinda Kelly, who discovered the cause of the seizures I was having and sparked my passion to become an ND.

 About Me

I am a third year naturopathic medical student at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, ON, Canada.

In my former career, I was an award-winning public affairs specialist and journalist for U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, headquarters of Navy and Marine Corps Medicine, in Falls Church, VA. I owe a lot of my inspiration and awe to the remarkable work of our rockstar military medical personnel.

I have been in and around the natural health world all of my life. I also had my own successful practice as a natural health practitioner and reiki master in Alexandria, VA, for several years where I helped hundreds of people achieve their optimum health through body, mind, and spirit.

Watching people grow and blossom fills my heart. I love to see the excitement and sparkle in their eyes when they get healthier, get connected to their true nature, and radiate wellness.

I am also an active hiker, dancer, and martial artist, who loves an occasional almond milk chai as a treat to feed my soul. I believe in magic, being of service every day, and the immense power of love.
