Meet Dr. Kennedy
I was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Massachusetts. I graduated from the University of Vermont, and headed west to work in various national parks and wildlife refuges for several years. I returned to the northeast and earned my master's degree in Environmental Studies from Antioch/NewEngland in Keene, New Hampshire, as well as a massage certificate from a local massage school, and ran my own massage therapy business for five years. During that time, my health began to suffer, and I sought out the help of Dr. Janet Beaty, a Massachusetts naturopath. I worked with her for about eighteen months, and felt like I had my life back. By this time, I was doing massage therapy in Dr. Beaty's naturopathic office, and I filled in as her secretary while she looked for a permanent replacement. I was privileged to meet and interact with the patients in Dr. Beaty's practice. By the end of three months there, I knew I was headed for naturopathic school.
I studied at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (now the National College of Natural Medicine) in Portland, Oregon, graduating in 2003. It took several years, but I made my way to Great Falls, Montana, and have been practicing here since March, 2007. I have learned to downhill ski, and love to hike, kayak and watch birds. My favorite thing about Montana is the hot springs, especially after skiing on a cold day.
Naturopathic Doctors Are Your Functional Medicine Experts
Naturopathic medicine is a stand-alone primary health care discipline that focuses on prevention, treatment, and achieving the highest level of health by supporting the body in its drive toward self-healing. Naturopathic physicians combine both traditional and modern forms of medicine to achieve optimal results.
Naturopaths are guided in their practice of medicine by six principles:
The one thing I wanted most from a health care provider was to feel a sense of trust and a sense of comfort in the presence of the person. I found it all in "Dr. Kate" Kennedy--a compassionate, knowledgeable, and professional person. Dr. Kate always listened to me, then offered some options for addressing my health concerns, bringing about positive health results! For thirteen years she has been a shoulder to lean on, and a thoughtful, caring doctor, for whom I am so very grateful!
