About Me

I am a licensed naturopathic physician in the state of Arizona focusing on pediatrics.  I received my naturopathic medical degree from SCNM where I also completed a general medicine residency.  I am a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist (CBS) and an IBCLC candidate.  I love working with new mothers to help them reach their breastfeeding goals.  While comfortable with many modalities, I enjoy using homeopathy as a safe, gentle, and effective method of stimulating the body to heal.  I also serve as adjunct faculty for SCNM.


Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, 2015).  Before attending SCNM, I attended Johns Hopkins University and Manhattanville College, receiving my BA with a focus in public health and psychology.

My Mission

I believe that healthy families are happy families.  As a mom, I understand how hard it can be to raise children and the uncertainty involved in keeping kids safe and healthy.  My mission is to work together with you to make knowledgeable decisions about your child’s healthcare and to help you and your family thrive.
