About the Owner

Dr. Karrina Wallace, ND

Dr. Karrina Wallace is passionate about providing comprehensive and effective natural health care options. Since a child, she aspired to become a doctor in order to help others. As a young adult facing illness of her own, she discovered the healing power of natural remedies when conventional healthcare offered no help. This healing experience empowered her to become a naturopathic doctor to provide natural healing modalities.

Dr. Wallace is an active member of the COAND and on the board of directors for 2023-2024.

She is passionate about expanding the practice of naturopathic medicine in order to provide better access to integrative medicine.

In her free time, Dr. Karrina enjoys being in nature at her home in Evergreen, CO with her two dogs and partner. Some of her favorite activities are hiking, rafting, and traveling to enjoy other cultures and environments.
