At about the age of 5 my mother said I drew the picture below and she wrote down what I told her at the bottom.
I was born and raised in Bismarck. Graduated Bismarck High School in 1992 and went off to study biology at the University of North Dakota. While at UND I visited the student health clinic several times for minor sniffles and sneezes.
Every time I walked out of there it seemed I was offered an antibiotic and birth control! I became disillusioned with “health care.” In my simple mind I became worried that I would be bored if all I had to offer people were antibiotics. I realize that this is a simplistic view of medicine, but hey I was 20 years old! During my senior year my sister took me to see a chiropractor who did kinesiology. I was fascinated by his knowledge of my body by just pressing on my arm, but I knew I was not meant to be a chiropractor. After completing my biology pre-health degree I moved out to Oregon to be near my junior high sweetheart Aaron. I worked at a ski area and learned to snowboard, but the desire to help others didn’t go away.
I turned to prayer and asked God to give me a sign of how he wanted to use me. The sign came one year later while back in Bismarck for a friends’ wedding. I wanted to go for a walk by the river but my car ended up at the library. I walked inside, went down a row of books and grabbed one off the shelf. I opened it and read a one paragraph description of homeopathy looked up and said “You’re close!” Then turned the page and it was a one paragraph description of the principles of natural medicine. I closed the book and my heart just soared! Finally, a medicine I could believe in!!
I attended Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington graduating in the fall of 2003 with a License in Massage Therapy, a Master of Acupuncture, and a Doctorate in Natural Medicine. I joined Dakota Natural Health Center in February of 2004 and worked there until December of 2017. January 1st 2018 I moved to my current location and started Evergreen Natural Health Clinic.
I am happily married to my sweetheart Aaron and have 2 sons Elias and Aksel. Our boys are both in hockey so we are on the go. In my spare time I enjoy walking my dog Ridge, snowboarding, water skiing, shooting sporting clays, and laughing with family and friends.
I love my job and feel so blessed. My mission is to restore clients to optimal health and to have a great time along the way!

PRP is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue. PRP treatments are 100% natural. They use your own blood platelets to accelerate your healing.
