This is the final student blog post that I will write before I graduate from the naturopathic medicine program next Friday.

Reflecting on my 4-year journey here at NUHS, I realize how much I have learned, experienced, and grown as a result of my education and experiences. I have met some of the most amazing and passionate people, building meaningful connections and friendships with them. I have deepened my passion for natural medicine. Although these years have been challenging and rigorous, I have pushed my limits, found my strengths and risen up to become a future naturopathic physician. This journey has definitely been the most rewarding commitment to myself and my future work that I have ever done.

I am incredibly grateful for all of my professors, clinicians and fellow students. I am grateful for the support I received from my family and friends when all I was doing was studying on a daily basis. I am grateful for all of the patients I worked with in the naturopathic student clinic, as I have learned so much from them and their cases.

I am excited and grateful to begin the next chapter of my life. I will return back home to Wisconsin. I look forward to continuing the work that I started here at NUHS, bringing my knowledge, passion, and genuine heart into the community I live in. I look forward to discovering more about the science and art of naturopathic medicine as I go along.

It has been an absolute honor to be the naturopathic student blogger during my time here at NUHS.
