Meet Dr. Wendy
Naturopathic physician and acupuncturist
I was drawn to naturopathic medicine because I always believed that medicine and healthcare should be about so much more than only diagnosing and prescribing medication.
Imagine what it would be like to have a doctor that not only reviews labs and looks at symptoms but also digs deeper to help figure out the "whys" of what's going on while helping provide you with tools to build a strong foundation.
Imagine a doctor that spends the time to listen and gets to know you as an individual while creating plans that are designed specifically for you.
Imagine a life where you have all the energy you could possibly want, sleep great and find joy in the everyday.
This is my wish, desire and goal for every one of my patients and for you.
A little about me:
I was born in Mississippi but raised in Portland Oregon from the age of 4.
With one parent that was an intense animal lover, the other a lover of the outdoors and both believing I might not survive childhood due to my degree of clumsiness, I had a diverse childhood that included LOTS of dance, animals and many hikes in the Gorge.
While thousands of hours of dance classes did not resolve the clumsiness, I discovered a life long love and continued to dance through high school, college and beyond eventually meeting my husband in the first musical I performed in.
I knew early on that I loved helping people so receiving a degree in psychology from Portland State was an easy choice but struggled with finding what felt like my perfect fit in the medical field until discovering naturopathic medicine.
During medical school, I "accidentally" fell in love with Chinese medicine and so in 2007 received my doctorate in naturopathic medicine and my masters in acupuncture from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM).
I had my daughter in my last year of medical school so understand first hand what its like to juggle a demanding career with being a mom and all the joys AND struggles that come with a very full life.
I live in Lake Oswego with my husband, daughter and 4 fur babies (2 cats and 2 dogs), continuing to enjoy dance, the theater, spending time in nature and reading whenever I get the chance.
