About Me


As a practicing licensed Naturopathic Doctor my goal is to combine medical knowledge with a holistic approach using natural therapies backed by scientific evidence so my patients can be healthier and happier.
I hope this blog helps extend these principles beyond my current practice and is a resource for my patients and others to fill in some of the gaps with useful and timely health information and recipes everyone can easily incorporate to their busy lives. 

While studying Biochemistry and pre-med at Boston College I discovered my passion for wellness care and healthy living rather than disease-centered medical care. Because conventional medical schools focus on disease management using surgery and pharmaceuticals rather than prevention and wellness, I chose to attend Bastyr University in Seattle, the world's leading naturopathic medical school.

Since starting my practice in 2006 I have consulted with patients with various health challenges although I most enjoy working with women who feel their bodies are in chaos because of hormone imbalances, stress, anxiety or a chronic illness. Finding the cause of their symptoms helps my patients become more in control of their health and feel more balanced and energetic.

While not working I enjoy cooking vegan meals for my omnivore boyfriend, Joe (still trying to convert him!), creating my own vegan recipes, reading, practicing yoga and meditation, playing field hockey and spending time at the beach with my family.

I am accepting new patients at Advanced Health & Wellness in Andover, MA. You can schedule an appointment by calling (978) 475-7676.

Tropical Coconut Lime Dairy Free “Yogurt”

Tropical Coconut Lime Dairy Free “Yogurt” 

2 cups young coconut meat ½ cup water or coconut milk Zest of 2 limes Juice of 1 lime 1 tablespoon maple syrup Contents of 2 probiotic capsules
If you purchased frozen young coconut meat, let it defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Add all ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender and blend until smooth. The mixture will be thicker than milk based yogurt but thinner than Greek yogurt, it will firm up over a few days in the refrigerator.
Young coconut meat is an excellent source of fiber and live enzymes. Because of the fiber content, this “yogurt” is filling, try a small serving (1/3 cup) at first. Top with fresh berries, ground flax seeds, hemp hearts, ground ginger, or fresh mint.
