ABOUT DR. MONROE
Dr. Monroe has been practicing medicine since the early 1970's when she graduated from UOHS Nursing School. She started her business in October of 1993 when she opened her practice in Elk Grove, CA. In January of 1996, Dr. Monroe moved her office to Sacramento where she is currently practicing. Dr. Monroe takes every opportunity she can to educate people wherever she is.
Dr. Monroe worked as a Pediatric Intensive Nurse at the Children's Hospital in University of Oregon Health Science Center in Portland, Oregon. When she left UOHS, she worked in Orthopedic Surgery at Kaiser. She also spent time in Augsberg, Germany Army Hospital where she worked in a medical surgical ward and helped open a pediatric unit there.
Like so many Naturopaths of her time, Dr. Monroe had to evolve to the concepts from her own health needs. In my late 30’s after having 3 children in two years and caring for my mother as she was dying from cancer, I developed adrenal fatigue with many of the accompanying conditions that go with it.
Chronic sinusitis, frequent colds, irritable bowel, food allergies, insomnia, hormone imbalance, and asthma. Traditional medicine wasn't able to help me, so in my quest to help myself, I found the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and knew that's where I belonged as a student.
DOCTOR OF NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE
It was a 5-year process of learning about health, as I came from a family where my mother was a career women, most of our food came from a box or a can. I didn’t have much understanding of nutrition, nor how to prevent illnes. Fortunately, my family and I all benefitted from this knowledge.
