Dr. Thatcher is a licensed Naturopathic Physician in the State of Arizona. She holds her Naturopathic Medical Degree (NMD) from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) in Tempe, Arizona. SCNM is a 4 year, accredited medical school. Prior to medical school, she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from the University of Arizona with a minor in Chemistry. She worked as a Research Scientist at the U of A College of Medicine for 11 years which she truly enjoyed. During that time she was raising her young family using more natural methods. When she felt a calling for a career change, she knew allopathic medical school was not where her interests lie. She found SCNM almost by accident and decided to attend a “Discovery Day” at the school. From the moment she walked through the doors, she knew that this is where she belonged. She is very passionate about Naturopathic medicine and feels blessed by the opportunities it provides for true health and healing for her patients and her family.
As a Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Thatcher enjoys being a true family doctor by treating the whole family from pediatrics to geriatrics with an emphasis on preventative care for optimal health.
She lives in Tucson with her husband, 3 kids, 2 labradors and 2 naughty ferrets striving daily to improve lives by following the natural path.
