While Dr. Jennifer Tuttle’s love for medicine began at an early age, it wasn’t until college that she was introduced to naturopathic medicine. As a collegiate athlete at the University of Portland, Dr. Tuttle has experienced firsthand the importance of having strong, healthy feet. Drawn to naturopathic methodologies, working at Northwest Foot & Ankle is a perfect opportunity to marry her interest in an active lifestyle with her passion for holistic health.
After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Dr. Tuttle continued her education at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon where she graduated with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and a certificate in Natural Childbirth. In 2010 she participated in a volunteer medical brigade with Natural Doctors International on the island of Omatepe , Nicaragua. Inspired by the community, Dr. Tuttle helped contribute to the donation of uniforms and equipment to a local women’s soccer team on the island.
Closer to home, while Dr. Tuttle’s greatest joy remains helping her patients reach their health goals, she also continues to love all things soccer. When she’s not playing or watching the game with her husband, she can be found coaching at the youth level. Giving back to the community and watching young players develop a passion for the game is one of the most rewarding experiences. Life as an avid soccer fan, player, and coach has given her a unique perspective on foot health. When not engaging in soccer-related activities, Dr. Tuttle also enjoys exploring the outdoors with her and her husband’s cunning Coonhound and expanding her succulent garden.
Dr. Tuttle is excited to work with you towards optimal health.
