Dr. Veronica M. Skedd, Naturopathic Physician
Dr. Skedd enjoys seeing patients of all ages and conditions, with particular interests in mood disorders and digestive conditions. Dr. Skedd’s other areas of interest include hormone therapies (thyroid, adrenal, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy), functioning as a whole; this includes identifying food sensitivities, nutrients an individual may be lacking, and helping educate each patient to be more in tune with their body and take charge of their health.
Dr. Skedd grew up in Nevada, where naturopathic medicine is not yet widely available, and as a result, was not aware that naturopathic medicine existed as a profession when she began her pre-medical studies at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Dr. Skedd realized her increasing passion for nutrition and alternative medicine were not congruent with the prevailing model of conventional medicine, which led to her pursue a different course. Months before graduating with her degree in business marketing from UNLV, Dr. Skedd attended a talk given by a local ND and instantly knew naturopathic medicine was the type of health care she had envisioned herself practicing. After earning her bachelor’s degree, Dr. Skedd moved to Seattle to attend Bastyr University and earned her doctorate of naturopathic medicine in 2011. She completed a two year residency at a busy naturopathic clinic and has been in practice since.
