Kellen Shade is currently a 3rd year naturopathic medical student at Bastyr University California. She completed her undergraduate degree at The University of California, Davis in Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior. After graduating, she worked for a year in Dr. Godby’s Sacramento Naturopathic Medical Center before going to medical school. She originally became interested in naturopathic medicine due to her own health journey and was drawn to the thorough, empathetic approach that she saw her mentors use with their patients. She looks forward to graduating from Bastyr in the spring of 2019.
