"Dr. Bull is a dedicated physician with compassion and enthusiasm that serves her well in working with older patients."
Dr. Bull is a graduate of Bastyr University and works alongside Dr. Iller as an associate naturopathic doctor. She left a comfortable but unfulfilling career in finance to pursue a life-long interest in health and wellness and chose naturopathic medicine for its patient-centered philosophy. Dr. Bull recognizes that health care is personal and enjoys working with the unique needs and challenges her patients present with.
Dr. Bull received her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University where she studied psychology and biology with a focus in genetics. She maintains a strong interest in genetics and continues to pursue education in the area of genomic medicine.
Additionally, Dr. Bull has a special interest in geriatrics and is currently working toward a Certificate of Gerontology through the University of Washington for which she was awarded the H. Asuman Kiyak Endowed Student Support Fund Scholarship. She has completed clinical rotations in geriatrics at the Senior Care Clinic at Harborview Medical Center, Aegis Assisted Living and Memory Care, the Ballard Community Senior Center, and the Vital Aging Clinic, in addition to a Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes specialty rotation at Bastyr Center for Natural Health. Dr. Bull also helped to co-author the first integrative geriatrics textbook available as part of the Andrew Weil Integrative Library in collaboration with Dr. Mikhail Kogan, M.D. and several other practitioners.
She is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the Washington Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the Naturopathic Association of Primary Care Physicians, and the Gerontological Society of America.
Dr. Bull is excited to join Functional Medicine Northwest and looks forward to working with you in your journey toward health.
