Dr. Shannon Wood Gallegos
Medical Director, Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Midwife, and CEO
Dr. Shannon firmly believes that an individual’s support structure and surroundings are the most important factors in healing and achieving autonomy in life. She takes great pride in the powerful sense of support and community flourishing within her practice. Dr. Shannon empowers her patients with the necessary knowledge to make the best possible choices for a healthy, balanced lifestyle. This philosophy of empowerment and support is the fundamental premise for her relationships with all of her patients.
Although Dr. Shannon knew very early on that her path would be in medicine, it was her graduate work in nutrition that inspired a unique approach to healing. Dr. Shannon provides a supportive environment with in-depth discussions, attentive and intuitive listening, as she truly treats each person as as individual.
Dr. Shannon received her Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry from the California State University, Chico. There, she went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Nutrition and Food Science. This provided her with a new direction for her medical training, as she realized the true importance of preventative care. Dr. Shannon graduated as a Naturopathic Physician in 2005 from Bastyr University. She also completed the Naturopathic Midwifery program. Dr. Shannon has assisted her clients in hundreds of births, including extensive work internationally.
After graduate school, Dr. Shannon had the opportunity to explore her other passion, travel. She was a flight attendant stationed in New York City for three years. This allowed her the opportunity to see and experience cultures throughout the world. In 2005, Dr. Shannon participated as a midwife in a local hospital on the island of Vanuatu. This clinical experience combined both her love of travel and her passion for childbirth and women’s health.
