Dr. Petrelli is a native of upstate New York and completed her associate degree in Massage Therapy from Columbia Green College in Hudson, New York and her undergraduate degree in Business from Sage College in Albany, New York. After spending some time shadowing an allopathic physician and seeing first-hand how impersonal and rushed the traditional model of medicine is, she sought out to find something better.
She graduated from National University of Health Sciences with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND). After spending many years working with the geriatric population in assisted living facilities, she works with this underserved population to give them a better quality of life by helping them to better manage their medications and retain their independence. Additionally, she is very passionate about metabolic disorders and thoroughly enjoys working with those individuals diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, thyroid conditions, etc. In her spare time, Dr. Petrelli enjoys spending her time outdoors running with her dogs and cooking Italian food with her partner.

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.
