Learn More About Dr. Willi
In fact, the art of medicine was one of her first interests. As a child, she invented and mixed-up concoctions made of natural substances –mud, plants, water, and the occasional egg – called them “appergicians” and she was the “appergicianist”. It was medicine to her. Wisely enough, she was not allowed to taste her own medicine or give her younger sister a dose!
At age 17, she read of naturopathic medicine and decided that she was going to attend Bastyr University and become a naturopathic doctor.
She lives on Bainbridge Island with her husband and their 5 chickens. Together, they have several projects underway including the restoration of a 1966 Volvo. She enjoys hiking, traveling, reading, and painting.
