Specializing in Naturopathic and Functional Medicine Solutions to Autoimmune Conditions and Digestive Health
Meet Dr. Angela
Board Certified Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine
Throughout my life I have developed and deepened my connection to nature. I grew up in a very small town in upstate New York where I spent a lot of time outside, riding my bike and playing sports. In college I discovered Environmental Studies, the only thing that resonated with me at age 18. We studied the local trees, wetlands, ecology, the natural world and how everything is connected—the story of nature.
After graduating from college, I was fortunate to live in and explore many places, including a remote community in the North Cascades National Park that could only be accessed by a boat or float plane, Washington, New Mexico, Arizona, Montana, and Oregon. I hiked in the remote wilderness every day. To this day I commit to hiking every single weekend and rarely make an exception – my health and wellness is that important to me.
I became a Naturopathic Doctor, at first, to quench my unrelenting desire to understand nutrition and physiology. The numerous natural supplement choices at health food stores were confusing. Everyone I spoke with recommended their own favorite supplements which made things even more confusing. So, I read, studied and created a personal goal to become an expert in cracking the natural health code.
During these post grad years my love of nature and desire to promote a health and a work-life-nature balance came together in my calling to become a Naturopathic Doctor. I enrolled in a Doctorate program at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon.
It was a struggle to maintain my balance and connection with nature during the rigors of medical school. The many hours spent in study and in front of the computer began to take their toll on my health. My weight crept up, my physical conditioning and overall connection with nature began to fade. Stress increased. This all gave me a renewed appreciation of the value of maintaining a healthy work-life-nature balance.
I opened my practice as a board-certified Naturopathic Physician in Las Vegas with the mission of supporting people to live happy, stress free lives through reconnecting their bodies with nature and the natural world.
