“The obstacle becomes the path.”
Dr. Tremblay was called to practice naturopathic medicine after experiencing her own health crisis. During her late teens and 20’s, Dr. Tremblay suffered from chronic reactive EBV, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and psoriatic arthritis. During this time she was also in 8 minor motor vehicle accidents (only at fault for 1), and 3 rock climbing accidents. Dr. Tremblay reclaimed her health and well-being with the skilled care of naturopathic and chiropractic physicians, lifestyle changes, and her body’s own healing response. When patient’s struggle with their health concerns and the process of healing, Dr. Tremblay understands because she has been there too.
A life time resident of East King County, Dr. Tremblay grew up near Avondale road and spent her childhood summers swimming in the Snoqualmie River. The twin loves of plants and healing took root early in her life, with herbal medicine making, gardening, and practicing reiki at the forefront of her adolescent pursuits. Dr. Tremblay graduated from high school with an associate’s degree in horticulture and worked as a gardener for 10 years before returning to the healer’s path to finish her schooling and earn a doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University. Dr. Tremblay also holds a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies from The Evergreen State College.
In addition to the rigorous medical coursework at Bastyr University, Dr. Tremblay pursued advanced training in reiki, homeopathy, craniosacral therapy, biofeedback, and botanical medicine. Some of her mentors in these fields include: Dr. Marja Eloheimo (TESC), Dr. Sheila Kingsbury (BU), Dr. Brad Lichtenstein (BU), subiyay Bruce Miller (Skokomish Tribe), and Elizabeth Czhubirka (reiki).
In her spare time, Dr. Tremblay can be found around town with her husband, Ryan, and Catahoula dog, Jubilee, or at home in the garden with her two cats Tenzi and Kula. She is an avid outdoor enthusiast, gardener, musician, and table top gamer. Dr. Tremblay volunteers with the Mindfulness Impact Group of the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network. Dr. Tremblay maintains professional memberships in the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and the Association of Applied Psychosphysiology Biofeedback.
