Stacie graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine in 2016 with a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and a master’s degree in global health and integrative medical research. Prior to her life as a naturopath, Stacie spent many years working in social services. While in school, she was an active member of student groups working to advance social justice on campus and increase inclusion of culturally specific topics into the curriculum of both the school of naturopathy and Chinese medicine. Since entering medical practice Stacie has worked within the community clinic network, providing care to individuals experiencing houselessness, substance abuse, mental health crises, and those navigating transgender health services. She has specialized training in transgender health and wellness, domestic and sexual violence advocacy, and injection drug use harm reduction.
Stacie approaches medicine by blending her experiences as a social services worker and medical provider. She believes that in order to live as a healthy society, we must simultaneously address systemic injustice and inequity while we make changes on the personal level. She uses a combination of nutritional counseling, emotional support, herbal medicine, and pharmaceuticals to treat patients and is committed to working in collaboration with patients to develop treatment plans that are achievable and effective. She practices from a place that honors the tenets of anti-oppression, body and sex positivity, gender-affirming care, and harm reduction.
