I am looking forward to gardening here in Nicaragua...experimenting at least. This is the plot right now surrounded by a living fence made of tree cuttings and barbed wire. We'll have to prep the beds by pulling out all the weeds or using a machete or double digging. We aren't quite sure what will grow. I hope to do some companion planting to deter insects and make some natural insecticides. Any suggestions or resources on tropical gardening are much appreciated!

I am a naturopathic family physician, a graduate of naturopathic medical school at Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. After many years of feeling a call on my heart to pursue further education in health care to better serve in the developing world, I attended naturopathic medical school a few years after earning my Bachelor's of Science in Biology from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota.
My passion is learning from and serving my community as a physician, friend and educator. I focus on helping my patients discover the root cause of illness and improve their overall mind/body/spiritual health.
I also enjoy being active outdoors, backpacking, soccer, skiing, photography, cooking, gardening and working with medicinal herbs. Living simply, sustainably and creatively are important to me as well as song, laughter, music, friends, deep discussions and growing within a supportive community...and, I love to have fun.
