Dr. Alisma was born and raised in the sunshine state of Florida. She completed her undergraduate degree in Biology at Florida State University in 2009. Shortly after graduating, she ventured into the sales and insurance industry, but kept her spirit for serving others nourished through volunteering at local hospitals and community-based programs for underserved populations. After having to seek alternative medicine to aid in her mother's health and witnessing its benefits first hand, she decided to return to school to begin her journey into the world of naturopathic medicine.
She graduated from National University of Health Sciences with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND). She is drawn to internal medicine and has a special interest in endocrinology. In her spare time, Dr. Alisma enjoys spending time with her family, trying out new workout routines, and exploring new foods and flavors. She is fond of sharing knowledge and empowering others to take back control of their health. She looks forward to helping you to optimize your health!

Currently, 22 states, five Canadian provinces, the District of Columbia, and the US territories of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands have laws regulating naturopathic doctors (NDs). In these states and provinces, naturopathic doctors are required to graduate from a four-year, in-residence naturopathic medical school and pass an extensive postdoctoral board examination (NPLEX) in order to receive a license or registration. Licensed naturopathic physicians must fulfill state- or province-mandated continuing education requirements annually, and have a specific scope of practice defined by the law in their state or province. States currently offering licensure and registration to naturopathic physicians include: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington.
Scope of practice regulations vary among licensed/regulated states, as do the parameters and restrictions for practitioners located in as yet unlicensed venues. Legal provisions still allow naturopathic doctors to consult with patients, making recommendations and suggestions based on prior diagnosis, in several of the yet unlicensed states and provinces.
