Amanda Roe ND (she/her)
I am a nature fanatic.
I grew up in a small town in West Virginia where I spent time exploring the outdoors with my dad and many hours doing arts and crafts with my mom. My love of nature and creativity, in addition to a deep faith in the body’s innate wisdom to heal, led me to study naturopathic medicine and midwifery. I have a sincere passion for teaching people about their bodies, how they function, and how to best care for them.
I believe that nature exposure is a solid part of any sound treatment plan.
“DR. AMANDA MAKES TIME IN EVERY APPOINTMENT FOR OUR QUESTIONS AND TAKES ALL of OUR QUESTIONS SERIOUSLY.HER QUIET CONFIDENCE AND COMPASSION WERE THE REASON MY HUSBAND AND I DECIDED TO HAVE HER AS OUR FAMILY'S DOCTOr.”
I studied Biology at James Madison University in Virginia with a focus on pre-medicine, zoology, and research. While attending JMU, I fell deeply in love with the study of the human body. I moved to Portland in 2000 to specialize in Naturopathic medicine and midwifery at the oldest accredited school of Naturopathy, the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM). At NUNM, I completed a 2-year internship in natural childbirth, with an emphasis on pediatrics and women’s health.
“DR. ROE IS WONDERFUL, PROVIDING A FUN AND SAFE ENVIRONMENT TO DELIVER PREMIUM NATUROPATHIC CARE.
She MAKES ME FEEL SO COMFORTABLE. I KNOW SHE HAS OUR BEST INTEREST AT HEART, WHICH MEANS SO MUCH. THANK YOU!”
When I’m not being your doctor, I love spending time with my family-my husband Michael, and our daughter, Iris and our son, Harry. We love exploring nature here in the Pacific NW. When I’m in town, I love vegetable & herb gardening, trail & ultra running, forest bathing with the kids, and teaching. I look forward to helping you with your health care concerns. Until we meet, keep up with my news on my Nature Intervenes blog!
“I FINALLY FEEL LIKE MY VOICE IS BEING HEARD WHEN I MEET WITH DR. ROE…I ALWAYS FEEL SO MUCH BETTER AFTER OUR VISITS, AND EACH TIME IT REAFFIRMS WHY WE COME HERE”
The truth is, Nature Heals. We need it. We need to experience it and preserve it.
