Joseph Marcello, ND

Graduate, University of Bridgeport School of Naturopathic Medicine

“The biggest challenge I faced during school was balancing family and schoolwork. Thankfully, I have an incredibly supportive wife who is understanding of the time required to obtain a graduate degree. We frequently reminded ourselves that it was only temporary. At the beginning of my third year of ND school, my daughter was born. My weekends changed significantly. I found that prioritizing my work during the week freed up a lot of time to spend with them on the weekend. I continued the same travel schedule for the remainder of my education and moved back to New Jersey after graduation to be a full-time husband and father while studying for NPLEX II.”
