She earned her Doctor of Naturopathic degree from National University of Health Sciences and her Bachelor of Arts from Whittier (CA) College.
Dr. Bogaard is most passionate about working hands-on with students, getting to know them and helping them reach their academic goals.
“Students’ love of learning and medicine helps to keep me motivated to continue learning as well,” she said. “Seeing students apply knowledge and growing throughout the trimester is great to see.”
