Dr. Huepers is a proud military spouse and a native of the great state of Texas. She attended Sul Ross State University in Alpine, TX to complete her Bachelor of Science in Biology, where she served as Vice-President of the University’s Society of Biologists. Upon graduation, she served for 3 years as a Research Associate for the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, TX. Following this, she attended allopathic (MD) medical school for 1 year, but was ultimately dissatisfied by the perpetual cycle of covering up symptoms with a myriad of prescription medications while not addressing the root cause of those symptoms.
Her passion for oncology stemmed from a life riddled with personal exposure to cancer. Her great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, and brother were all diagnosed with various forms of cancer. When she was 17, she had her own run-in with cancer. Fortunately, herself, her mother and her brother were able to overcome their diagnoses through a combination of conventional and alternative supportive therapies. Seeing her loved ones suffer so greatly from these ailments drove her to seek a career helping others to overcome this often terrifying diagnosis.
She graduated from National University of Health Sciences with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND). She specializes in consulting with patients utilizing both conventional and alternative therapies. In addition to this, she provides counseling services for her patients and their families. Environmental medicine is another one of her passions and she consults with those who have been unable to manage their diseases and disorders through conventional methods and are seeking natural alternatives.
In her spare time, Dr. Huepers enjoys spending her days with her husband of 12 years, her 2 cats, and 2 dogs (a chocolate lab and a corgi). She is a fan of the outdoors and loves to go hiking and simply being in nature.

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.
