Philosophy of Care

As an integrative practitioner, I provide both hands on care, as well as education and resources for you to gain autonomy over your health.

My philosophy is that YOU are the most integral part of your treatment team.

Meet Your Practitioner

Hi, and thank you for being here! I began my career at the Mayo Clinic as a pediatric nurse in 2011. As much as I enjoyed the experience working with families from all around the world, I quickly realized that our modern healthcare system's reactive approach was taking a toll on both my patients and myself.

 

While searching for advanced degree options, I started getting acupuncture treatment for insomnia related to working alternating day and night shifts.  Acupuncture and the other modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) quickly opened my eyes to a comprehensive system of medicine, and a whole new approach to health. Although 3000+ years old to other cultures, TCM was new to me, and didn’t take much convincing that this was the philosophy of medicine I wanted to both live, and practice for my patients. I am still practicing nursing, and feel fortunate to have my feet in both doors of medicine. 


Growing up on one of Minnesota’s lakes, I enjoy as much time outside as I can get. Gravel roads and wooded trails are home to me, and practicing a philosophy of medicine that sees beauty in the relationship to our environment is truthfully fulfilling.


I believe that a happy, healthy life is achievable through community engagement, ancestral nutrition, moving, meditation, and guiding one’s Qi into balance.


When I’m not practicing medicine, I enjoy hiking, camping, foraging, cooking, traveling, singing silly camp songs, spending time with my husband, son, and zoo of furry animals, and enjoying all of the beauty that southern Minnesota has to offer.


Conditions I enjoy treating: stress, anxiety, insomnia, menstrual health, fatigue, prenatal and postnatal care, digestion, and preventative health.

*In its original content, the term “oriental” was used to indicate land lying East of European settlers, and therefore used in racial inferiority. 
Wild Integrative Health is committed to racial equity and supports a change in the use of this term.
