Meet Dr. Stephenie

A lifelong pursuit of optimal health.

Dr. Stephenie is a passionate advocate for holistic health and a firm believer in the power of proactive wellness. She is the mother of 2 young adults, now navigating the path of parenthood beside them, grateful to be part of their journey and success as they launch into the world.

Dr. Stephenie graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S. in Engineering and spent nearly a decade designing medical devices. Her path to becoming a Naturopathic Doctor began with a personal curiosity about Environmental Medicine—how our surroundings impact our well-being. Graduating from Bastyr University in 2004, Dr. Stephenie dove headfirst into the world of natural medicine, driven by her belief in the profound connection between what we consume and how we thrive.

For Dr. Stephenie, wellness isn't just a profession—it's a way of life. She's a living testament to the principles she practices, infusing her daily routine and medical approach with the same dedication to healthy living. From mindful eating to nurturing lifestyle choices, she knows that true health starts with the small, consistent actions we take each day.

In 2015, Dr. Stephenie moved her practice to Truckee, opening the doors to High Sierra Naturopathic Medicine, Inc. Here, she's not just treating patients; she's fostering a community centered around proactive health and well-being. As Truckee's premier Naturopathic medical office, Dr. Stephenie and her team are on a mission to empower individuals to take charge of their health and lead vibrant, fulfilling lives.

Additionally, she expanded her medical education through training in Cranial Sacral and Visceral Manipulation through Upledger Institute, as well as Nalbudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET), used to treat allergies and sensitivities through a combination of applied kinesiology and acupressure.
