Professional History

Dr. Crosby grew up as a competitive athlete and discovered that diet impacted her performance above all. This led to her pursuing degrees in wellness, earning two bachelor's degrees, in Nutrition and Exercise Science, and a master's in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition from Montana State University in Bozeman. Before moving back to her hometown of Seattle to pursue natural healing degrees, she worked as a nutrition educator. She then attended Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington, earning her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and master's in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She has completed trainings in Craniosacral therapy and Visceral Synthesis techniques. Her focus during her professional training was gastrointestinal health and mind-body medicine.
