Naturopathy embodies her belief in the power of allowing our body to heal itself with the use of integrative medicine and nutrition. She was frustrated with the prescription drug model and felt that there had to be another way. After completing her B.S. in Nutrition Science at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Katie moved to Arizona. There, she attended the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (now Sonoran University) in Tempe and was the biochemistry TA and peer mentor.
Women’s medicine, chronic health concerns, dietary counseling, abused women, and the underserved community were her focus in Arizona. Working with a midwife and volunteering at a clinic in Mexico with Naturopaths Without Borders were experiences she won’t forget. Dr. Katie completed a month-long internship in California at the TrueNorth Health Center, a fasting clinic where she monitored very ill patients during a fast or detox. After completing her boards, Dr. Katie decided to brave the winters again and moved back to Minnesota in order to be closer to her friends and family. She is board-certified and registered in the state of Minnesota. Naturopathic Medicine is where her true passion lies, and she is very excited to be practicing in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area.
Dr. Katie and her husband Brian live in Victoria with their sons Macklin and Boden, and dog Romeo. As a Mom, Dr. Katie understand the challenges of fertility, pregnancy, being a parent, and raising healthy children.
