Dr Michelle Simon, Ph.D., ND
Dr. Michelle Simon graduated from Bastyr University with a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and has been practicing as an ND since 2002. She also holds a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her work there focused on ion-selective microelectrodes used for cardiac research.
Since her time as a Biomedical Engineer, her perspective on healthcare radically expanded to include recognizing the amazing, inherent healing ability of a body in balance. This inspired her completion of the four-year Naturopathic Medicine program at Bastyr University and a family practice residency in Seattle.
Dr Michelle Simon currently serves on the Washington State Health Technology Assessment Program Clinical committee. She is also the Co-Director of the Communities in Need/Integrated Care Options Project, a project of the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians (WANP). This program is designed to bring alternative forms of medicine to rural and under-served communities around the state of Washington.
Dr. Simon grew up in Vermont, where she learned an appreciation of the beauty of nature. That appreciation continues to grow here in the Pacific Northwest where she enjoys hiking, motorcycling, and travel.
Dr. Kelly Baker, ND, L.Ac
Dr. Baker spends a great deal of time working to educate her patients, writing articles and giving talks throughout the community. She was diagnosed with celiac disease after college and has been strictly gluten free ever since, which helps her to have a keen understanding of the role that healthy eating and living can play in each person’s life.
Hailing from Michigan, Dr. Baker loves spending time outdoors (even in the rain!) in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two young children. Some of her additional interests include cooking, swimming, traveling, and eating. She looks forward to sharing her knowledge of naturopathic medicine and the human body to help her patients along their paths to improved health.
