Welcome to The Happy Healthy Woman...how can I help?
What do I do?
I’m a functional medicine women’s health and hormone doctor who believes in the importance of women understanding their hormones in a simplified way so they can feel more empowered to take control of their own health especially when they are told everything is ‘normal’ but they don’t feel ‘normal’.
What do I say I do?
I'm a modern doc with a holistic bent who appreciates the best of both worlds. I wear heels and take herbs. My primary goal is to help educate those who want to feel happy and healthy again (and maybe get their sex drive and energy back in the process...)
What do I really do?
I help hormonal women feel less crazy.
I am a Naturopathic Doctor with a Master’s in Public Health having over 10 years in the field of functional and integrative medicine focusing on women’s health and their hormones. I am a regular contributor to the women’s health online resource, Empowher and have been published on both Yahoo! and Yahoo! health several times. I am a regular speaker at both conferences, events, and podcasts on the subject of hormones including fertility, PCOS, adrenal health, thyroid health, peri-menopause, and menopause. While in private practice outside of Portland, Oregon, I was named as one of the Portland Monthly Top Docs. Currently I am the Medical Director for a prominent international hormone testing lab working with health care providers all over the world. I'm married to the love of my life who is an Officer in the Army and we are stationed at Joint Base Lewis McChord outside of Seattle, WA. I have 2 amazing step-kids and a dog who is too smart for his own good. I was born in Michigan, raised in Lexington, KY but lived the last 16 years in the Pacific Northwest. Go Seahawks!
It's nice to meet you! Girl, I understand...
