Associate Dean, School of Naturopathic Medicine, Director of Residency Program
Dr. Geyer brings an array of experiences to her position as Associate Dean of the School of Naturopathic Medicine. She has a true passion for nature cure modalities, which is complemented by her strong expertise in integrative and conventional modalities, such as minor surgery.
Dr. Geyer also has a solid understanding of the needs and demands of a strong residency program. She completed a family practice residency after graduating from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM). Following her residency, Dr. Geyer began seeing patients in private practice, focusing on pediatrics, family practice and women’s health. In 2008 she joined the SCNM faculty as an adjunct instructor and supervised students on rotations as an attending physician in SCNM’s clinic.
Dr. Geyer was intricately involved with SCNM’s new integrative curriculum development, serving as chair for the clinical skills committee. She also helped design the college’s GPA exams. Her academic background will allow her to bring a fresh perspective to some of NCNM’s most pressing curriculum issues.
Beyond private practice and academia, her deep interest in community and global medicine led to her involvement in Naturopaths Without Borders (NWB). She has played a key role in that organization’s growth and development, including supervising more than 20 monthly medical mission trips to Mexico since 2009. In 2011, Dr. Geyer was appointed executive director of NWB, which opened its first Portland community clinic last year and will open its first full-time clinic in Haiti this year.
Finally, her commitment in advancing the medicine is demonstrated by her advocacy for legislative policy development as an AANP House of Delegates representative.
