Bastyr and NCNM are two of just five schools in the United State that are accredited to grant an N.D. – a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. When selecting a naturopath, it is important that your practitioner be a graduate of an accredited program.
Naturopathic Doctors are currently licensed in 15 states (practitioners in Colorado are actively working towards licensure), the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Dr. O’Connor is actively licensed in the State of Oregon.
At Bastyr University, Dr. O’Connor was founder and president of the Bastyr University Pediatrics Club, where she scheduled presentations on subjects like pre-conception care, food introduction, autism research, homeopathy and children, attachment parenting and adolescent medicine. Her actions resulted in the addition of an Advanced Pediatrics elective to Bastyr University’s curriculum as well as an off-site clinic shift dedicated to pediatric health care for low-income children.
Dr. O’Connor is also a Certified Professional Midwife who has participated in the birth of more than 100 babies – including two months in the labor and delivery ward of the only hospital on the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific. As a certified professional midwife, she cares for children (and their mothers) before conception, during gestation, at birth, and during the critical weeks and months post-partum – including support with breastfeeding and parenting.
Dr. O’Connor attended Denver East High School and graduated with honors, Phi Beta Kappa, from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
