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.
