Her desire to practice Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) never ceased to grow throughout this time. After searching for a medical school that would allow her to follow her passion she then found the specialty of naturopathic medicine and left her career in medical research after enrolling. In order to compliment her studies in conventional medicine and CAM, she then sought to acquire a strong foundation in eastern medicine, leading her to also pursue an education in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Her search to become a holistic practitioner lead her to simultaneously attend naturopathic medical school at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) and her Masters at the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture (PIHMA) in Arizona. With much dedication in attending two professional programs simultaneously, Dr. Ferreira was able to obtain her professional Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at SCNM and her Masters of Science in Acupuncture at PIHMA. Upon completion of her medical boards, she then completed the STAIR Integrative Residency through Bastyr University, which was sponsored by Integrative Therapeutics.
During her downtime, Dr. Ferreira enjoys being outdoors by participating in hiking, trail running, snowboarding and practicing the art of fire poi. These are only a few of the activities she loves. Her greatest passion has been in the kitchen, creating nutritious dense foods that are packed with flavor. She also enjoys practicing spiritual meditation and is an active member in her church and congregation where she also volunteers in various affiliated activities.
