The Final Push

Hi Followers! Friends, family, and people who’ve found me along the way…

I can’t believe it’s finally my last year of med school, only half a year left to go! I recently passed my clinic exit exam, so there’s not much standing between me and graduation… except a bunch of papers, tests, precepting hours, community education hours… tying up the loose ends! And man does it feel good.

It’s been a busy time in my life. This past fall I got elected to the board of the Oregon Association of Naturopathic Physicians (OANP) for 2017, became the chair of a committee, and I couldn’t be more excited to be getting involved with my local leaders! Then I had Christmas on the Oregon coast, a whirlwind ski trip to Bend for my last annual NCNM getaway, took an inspiring business course for naturopaths, and am looking forward to a week-long seminar in April studying and being inspired by┬áplant medicines.

Graduation is coming up on July 1st. If you want to come celebrate, there’s plenty of room, please come, and let me know so I can find you there!

Thanks for following along with my journey! It’s been long and circuitous, but finally coming close to an end, and on to the next phase of dreaming and inspiration. If you’d like to receive my professional newsletter (coming soon!) you can email me at doctorashleend@gmail.com.
