Kimberly grew up on the East Coast and graduated from the College of William and Mary with a B.S. in Biology. She completed an M.A. in Ecotoxicology at Duke University and worked in the environmental consulting field before finishing her N.D. and M.S.O.M. degrees at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2004. She came to study Naturopathic and Chinese medicines through her own healing journey, after the drugs of caring and well-intentioned doctors failed to provide benefit, and physicians ran out of ideas. Kimberly herself has hypermobile EDS, POTS, MCAS, and has had release surgery for an occult tethered cord, so she understands complex health conditions. She attributes her current level of personal health to what she’s learned and the changes she’s made in her life based on her studies and clinical experiences with these forms of medicine. She continues to move toward truly optimal health today, and uses her personal health experiences to better relate to and understand her patients.
Kimberly works with patients with a wide variety of conditions, rather than specializing on a particular condition or body system. Her naturopathic practice is based in the philosophy of Biotherapeutic Drainage, and as such, her treatment modalities focus on UNDAs, Plex remedies, Gemmotherapy, and Phytogen therapy as well as basic naturopathic treatment guidelines, nutrition, and homeopathy. She utilizes the best of modern Western medicine research and science while appreciating and valuing patient ideas and intuitions. She has also been trained in Cranial Fluid Dynamics by Solihin Thom, has Reiki Master attunement, and has studied many types of energetic healing. Her Chinese medicine education is grounded in the classical traditions with additional focus in Seven Dragons treatment of the Five Element tradition. She combines her love of science with her curiosity, intuition, and desire to serve others. She is passionate about health care and brings great energy, caring, and dedication to her relationships with patients. Her strong scientific background acts as the medical foundation to her practice. The art of her practice comes from her desire to know her patients and think outside the box to help them achieve their health and life goals.
