On her meandering journey through life, she has been a ballet dancer, musician, amateur theologian, master gardener, mountaineer, cyclist, and a circus artist. Her passion is the fusion of paradigms and disciplines. As a naturopathic physician, acupuncturist and student of permaculture she focuses on a “whole systems” approach to health challenges of the individual and the human condition as a whole.
Dr. Andrews received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and Masters of Acupuncture at Bastyr University in 2003. She is a graduate of the Boulder College of Massage therapy and also holds a BA in psychology from the University of Kentucky (1992). Prior to practicing in Austin, she was medical director of Mosaic Natural Health Clinic in Seattle, WA and served as faculty at Bastyr University. She has advanced training in environmental medicine, IV therapy, chelation, injection therapies, massage therapy and permaculture design. She has apprenticed with master herbalists, and native healers around the globe, and led a medical volunteer team in Kenya. She has served on the board of directors for both the Washington and Texas Associations of Naturopathic Doctors and was the education coordinator for the American Botanical Council. She currently offers naturopathic consultations at Peoples Rx in Austin and serves as faculty at AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine.
In addition to faculty appointments, she offers lectures & seminars for public, government, corporate, student and professional health education. Her practice specializes in complex, chronic and "difficult" cases, especially relating to digestive health, fatigue, hormone balancing, mood and detoxification. She works extensively with MTHFr and related genetic challenges as well as environmental illnesses from mold, heavy metal, and chemical exposures. Her combined training in massage therapy, acupuncture and naturopathic medicine give her a unique and multi faced approach to treating chronic pain and injuries. Her decade of primary care experience in Seattle gives her special insight into combining naturopathic, traditional western and eastern paradigms with conventional medical approaches. In addition to seeing patients and teaching at AOMA, she has a "secret" life as a trapeze artist.
