Dr. Bassett, a native New Englander, has been practicing Naturopathic Medicine in Portland Oregon for the last 25 years and has recently joined us at the BioMed Center of New England.
Dr. Bassett graduated from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (Now NUNM) and was a faculty member for 6 years. Though she enjoyed teaching, her true love is private practice.
After her undergraduate work at Mt. Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts, Dr. Bassett joined the U.S. Peace Corps. and served in rural Honduras. The acute and chronic illnesses incurred from her service had their own silver lining. She learned that without our health, everything in life takes more effort—thus began her path toward becoming a naturopathic physician. Dr. Bassett has committed her life to helping those who have chosen to make their health a priority because she believes that when we are “whole” we can more fully live the life we were given. Perhaps we made some less than optimal choices, or perhaps we simply had an unfortunate health event—either way Dr. Bassett would like to help you get back on the horse and finish the ride with as much joy as possible.
Though she loves all medicine, her current passions are mental health, women’s health, endocrinology, POTS, and cardiology (especially cholesterol issues).
