Happy New Year!

by Jan 19, 2018

  1. Twenty-eighteen!! I can’t believe it’s finally here: graduation year.

I have so much to look forward to this year as I finish off my naturopathic education and graduate in August.

This trimester I have one class (minor surgery) and clinic. I feel more comfortable with the way clinic works and staying top of researching conditions and therapies for patients. I have a few patients who come in regularly for care, and I’m happy to see improvement in their cases. The clinic dispensary is full of hundreds of products, and I strive to become more familiar with appropriately prescribing supplements that I haven’t used personally.

Aside from attending class and clinic, I’m slowly starting to work on my future business. The name has been decided, the logo is in progress, and I purchased a domain name, but haven’t started working on the website yet. As of now, my mind goes back and forth with renting an office space, or being a house-call or concierge doctor. Blending models is also a possibility, and I’d have to figure out how to price my services accordingly.

Stay tuned for blog posts that elaborate on everything I’ve just mentioned–minor surgery class, the clinic dispensary, my future business, and more!

I'm a naturopathic medical student at NUHS. I started the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Program in January 2014. I was born and raised in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, a beautiful town on Lake Michigan. My experiences interpreting (Spanish to English) in nearly all medical specialties solidified my decision to study naturopathic medicine, as I saw a deep need for treating the body as a whole, getting to the root causes of symptoms, and using minimally invasive low-cost therapies to restore health.
