Dr. Adrienne Wood.pngI started at Carleton University studying Biochemistry and graduated with a Bachelor of Medical Sciences from The University of Western Ontario. From there I worked at a private boarding school in Ontario teaching Outdoor Education, then moved to Germany for a year. After this I began my postgraduate degree at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC.

I started at Carleton University studying Biochemistry and graduated with a Bachelor
of Medical Sciences from The University of Western Ontario. From there I worked at
a private boarding school in Ontario teaching Outdoor Education, then moved to Germany for a year. After this I began my postgraduate degree at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver, BC. I graduated in 2013 with a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine.

I was lucky enough to squeeze in a fair amount of traveling between my endeavors and consider this instrumental in shaping my choices and led me where I am today. I always wanted to have a career in medicine and, while living in Germany, I was exposed to herbal medicine and homeopathy; their doctors are trained in both western and natural medicine. It inspired me to pursue this in Canada.

I am practicing Naturopathic Medicine in my hometown of Windsor. Naturopathic
Doctors are medically trained, naturally focused; we play a role in preventative health
and getting to the root cause of disease. I have my own busy practice and feel lucky to
help others navigate their paths to health.

When I am not seeing patients in my office, I am teaching, hosting healthy cooking classes and retreats. I am also actively involved in the Town of Windsor. Individual wellbeing and a healthy community are inextricably linked; I plan to keep contributing to both in Windsor.

In the future I would love to become even more involved in the town and continue growing my practice. For the KES students: I would encourage them to figure out what brings them joy in this world. Ask questions, try new things, think outside the box, and bring awareness to what fills their heart and soul with happiness and passion. Then find a way to do this every day! We really do create our own experience in this life, and the biggest part of this is discovering what you want to create!
