josieA transplant to Maine, Josie is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and Midwife. She grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota and went to college at the University of Montana before moving to Seattle. Josie graduated from Bastyr University with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, and her Midwifery Certification. She has attended over 150 births in her midwifery training, including an adventure to the small country of Vanuatu.

Josie’s love for Naturopathy and Midwifery stems from a desire to promote health with minimal intervention and maximum cost effectiveness- natural remedies treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.

After practicing in Philadelphia, Josie is looking forward to working with Dr. Ackerly, attending births and providing naturopathic primary care. Josie and her husband are excited to be living in such a beautiful and friendly area. They are avid climbers and runners, enjoy the outdoors, cooking, and drinking coffee.
