1. What is the most gratifying part of your work?
Partnering with my patients to address their concerns as a team is incredibly gratifying. Together we are able to uncover the cause of many issues and then figure out management strategies using natural therapies. Empowering people to take care of themselves and their families is amazing — I love working with whole families and seeing them thrive!
2. Why did you get into your profession?
I was excited to find a primary health care profession where providers were encouraged to take time with their patients to work on diet and lifestyle concerns, as well as using natural remedies for disease and symptom management. As someone who had experienced better health through changes in diet and exercise, I knew that there was a lot that people could do for themselves if given the tools.
