Meet Dr. Carlson
Board Certified Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine
I grew up in a very small town in Upstate NY. My family did not have a lot of money and my Mother worked tirelessly to afford us every opportunity that she could. After completing high school, I attended Binghamton University and became the second person in my family to earn a college degree.
In college, I studied ecology and was fascinated with the interconnections of the natural world. I sought every opportunity that I could to travel. 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 have always had a passion for learning and studying and could frequently be found with a textbook taking notes in my free time. My favorite subjects were Nutrition and Physiology and I had a strong desire to understand how the body works.
When I was introduced to Naturopathic Medicine, it was an immediate perfect fit. I had finally found a profession that would allow me the opportunity to combine my passion for nature, nutrition, and physiology, while also providing a career path in which I could help others!
