Meet Dr. Brittney Lesher, ND
Greetings! My name is Dr. Brittney Lesher and I'm looking forward to working with you on your health and wellness at Alpine Integrated Medicine.
I grew up on the small island of Oahu, Hawaii and battled with severe asthma, anxiety, and allergies all throughout my childhood. I spent a lot of time worrying about my health and depended on various medications at a very young age.
As I got older, I learned about all of the other ways that people took care of their health and became fascinated with complementary medicine, so much so that I decided to shadow an ND practicing in Honolulu in hopes of learning more about alternative forms of healthcare. I saw how much time and care went into each patient’s visit and how each treatment plan was customized to the patient’s unique needs: blending the best of both conventional and traditional therapies. From that day on, I was hooked and decided to become a Naturopathic Doctor.
I left Hawaii to follow my dreams and went on to receive my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington, where I was trained in primary care medicine.
During my program, I received extra specialized medical training in IV therapy, oncology support, rheumatology, and various women’s health conditions. I am also very passionate about physical medicine or what I like to call “hands on medicine” and worked as a licensed massage therapist throughout medical school, developing my ability to help with managing pain naturally.
My main goal as a doctor is to provide a supportive and interactive environment that promotes an active engagement with your healthcare. We all know that what fosters true health are the day-to-day decisions that each of us make and I want to help you make the most well-informed decisions that work for YOU and your unique needs.
Outside of the clinic, I enjoy spending time with my favorite people, exploring more of Washington and my new neighborhood, and keeping busy with various hobbies.
I am very excited to be the resident physician at AIM and am so looking forward to meeting you all in the near future!
