Trisha Lee is a graduate of the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, OR, where she received her Doctorate in Natural Medicine in 2015. Trisha's exposure to natural medicine began after her mother was diagnosed with aggressive stage 3 breast cancer. It was through this process of caring for her mom and researching alternative supportive therapies, that her desire to become a physician was born. Prior to NCNM she worked at consulting firm that focuses on practice management. She spent 5 years working with doctors in private practice and realized that she needed to go back to school for something that she truly believed in. As a medical intern, she completed a three year internship in the areas of primary care, woman's health, IV therapy and environmental medicine. Trisha's medical philosophy utilizes both natural and conventional care to provide her patients with the most comprehensive care possible.
