Naturopathy embodies her beliefs in the importance of nutrition and our health. She was also frustrated with the prescription drug model and felt that there had to be another way. After completing her B.S., Dr. Katie moved to Arizona where she attended the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe. Dr. Katie was the biochemistry TA and peer mentor.
She focused on women’s medicine, chronic health concerns, dietary counseling, abused women, and the underserved community. Working with a midwife and volunteering at a clinic in Mexico with Naturopaths Without Borders were experiences she won’t forget (see pictures below). Dr. Katie completed a month-long internship in California at the TrueNorth Health Center, a fasting clinic where she monitored very sick patients during a fast or detox. After completing her boards, Dr. Katie decided to brave the winters again and move back to Minnesota in order to be closer to her friends and family. She is board-certified and registered in the state of Minnesota. Naturopathic Medicine is where her true passion lies, and she is very excited to be practicing in Minnesota.
