Our Team

We at Mission Naturopathic Clinic, are a group of three female Naturopathic Physicians that have partnered together to provide a more optimal environment and experience for our patients. We all have experience prior to opening our clinic in different work environments, and desired to come together to collaborate our knowledge and tools and give more options to our patients. We also looked to achieve balance in our own lives between work and home, and our clinic has provided us the ability to do just that. We continue to strive to learn and expand our skill sets, as our goal is to provide our patients an atmosphere of integrity and innovation.
