Ongoing Research Efforts
While pursuing my bachelor’s degree, I was also active in research relating neurotrophic factors to blood pressure regulation. This research experience fueled my hunger for solutions. I continued research while in medical school, and was involved in projects at Helfgott Research Institute and Portland VA Medical Center.

Clinical and basic science research is instrumental in providing adequate health care for individuals. As a result, I keep up to date on new treatments and diagnostic protocol developments in research so I can provide the best care possible, focusing on holistic ideals and naturopathic medicine.
