I received my doctorate from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR, the oldest accredited naturopathic medical school in the country, and graduated with academic Highest Honors. In addition to my naturopathic clinical training, I completed a 1-year specialized internship in cardiac and pulmonary medicine at the Center for Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. I currently hold an Oregon State Naturopathic License.

Since 2005, Dr Fey has helped thousands of women, men, and children find real solutions to their health concerns. I truly believe that giving the proper care and nutrients your body has an amazing ability to heal. I am committed to finding the root cause of illness by utilizing a whole body approach not just focusing solely on presenting symptoms.

Before attending naturopathic medical school, I was very active in scientific research involving plant molecular biology at Cornell University. My introduction to natural medicine occurred at Cornell and was the culmination of a life long interest in science and medicine combined with a deep appreciation for plant science, the environment, and alternative healing.

In my spare time, I enjoy running and biking, spending time outdoors, experimenting with cooking, and traveling. Most importantly, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters.
