Dr. Lee started her career as a pharmaceutical chemical engineer, sourcing raw materials for vaccines and black widow antivenin, as well as minimizing mad cow disease risk. After being faced with the possibility of her parents having to take cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives, she left corporate America to seek a more efficient and natural way to heal human beings.
She enjoys finding creative, innovative strategies that produce results for optimal health. Dr. Lee has helped many realize their dreams of growing a family as a natural fertility expert, and has become passionate about helping those with the greatest potential to pass healthy habits down generations. “The cause of illnesses includes mental, emotional, and physical factors that all need to be addressed.” Her patients say her genuine approach involves listening to all health concerns and helping them to understand their bodies for optimal health.
Licensed Naturopathic Doctors
A licensed naturopathic doctor (N.D.) attends a four-year, accredited graduate level naturopathic medical school educated in all basic sciences (e.g. physiology, pathology, biochemistry, gross anatomy, microbiology) in addition to clinical nutrition, acupuncture, botanical medicine, homeopathy, psychology, counseling, and physical medicine. A naturopathic doctor additionally completes over 1,000 hours of clinical work and takes professional board examinations to be licensed by a particular state.

Because Dr. Lee is not a medical doctor (M.D.), advisement of a medical doctor, M.D., in addition to the care received by Dr. Lee is recommended and encouraged.
