Born and raised in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, Dr. Visser grew up around nature. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from West Chester University of Pennsylvania with an emphasis in pre-medical sciences. She originally had the goal of attending conventional medical school, but didn’t feel she would be able to use her love of nutrition to treat her patients’ ailments. After one of her professors introduced her to naturopathic medicine and she saw the benefits of using it for her own chronic conditions, Dr. Visser instead chose to attend naturopathic medical school.
She spent five months in Jerusalem, Israel participating in an internship at a non-profit organization that provided natural health care to women and babies, and loved the model they used to treat patients.
She graduated from National University of Health Sciences with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND). She is currently planning to pursue a Masters in Clinical Practice and a residency in naturopathic pediatrics. Her passion is treating chronic conditions such as autism, ADHD, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, migraines, and genetic conditions.
In her spare time, Dr. Visser loves reading, writing her own stories, and cooking new foods.

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.
