Jeana Kimball, ND, MPH
Jeana Kimball, ND, MPH grew up in the state of Oregon. She explored her rural neighborhoods, learning to appreciate the power and beauty of nature. She trusts and uses the healing power of nature to help her patients find balance, get healthier and live life to its fullest. She began work as a dental assistant at age 16. Her parents urged her to learn a trade. At 19, she became one of the youngest persons in the state of Oregon to gain licensure as a dental hygienist. Her experience as a hygienist stimulated her interest in healthcare approaches that focused on systemic issues. Dr. Kimball earned her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND) from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington in 1989. She graduated with honors in counseling. She believes relationships are central to healing processes. Believing that doctors should know how to deliver babies and desiring to learn the skills, she pursued a midwifery degree (LM, Bastyr, 1991). She travelled around the world after graduation from Bastyr, living and doing births in southern Texas, India, Holland and England. She soaked up different cultures while circumnavigating the globe.
