ResidentEmerald City Naturopathic Clinic

“Medical school gave me the basic building blocks, the foundation, and the passion for naturopathic medicine; my residency gives me the opportunity, the confidence, the experience, and, above all, the mentorship I need to actually be a successful physician. I am astounded at how quickly I have stepped into my role as a doctor, and, although I don’t always know what to do, I am so much more confident in my knowledge. Furthermore, any time I don’t know what to do, I simply walk down the hall and ask for help from docs with decades of experience. In addition, I am learning what it takes to run a clinic from the inside out, under the tutelage of my residency site director and her incredible team.”
