I am an Alberta-licensed ND who also holds a Master’s of Science in Nutrition. I offer nutritionally focused care and have a special interest in digestive issues and supportive mental health care.

I grew up in Kamloops, BC and after graduating high school, studied Ecology and Environmental Biology at Thompson Rivers University (TRU). While at TRU, I started volunteering with St John Ambulance Division 518 as a Medical First Responder, providing first aid coverage at community events.

My experiences with St John Ambulance prompted me to consider a career in medicine, but my studies in ecology and environmental biology swayed me to seek a holistic approach so I completed a dual-degree program at the National University of Natural Medicine, in Portland, Oregon, USA, obtaining both a Masters of Science in Nutrition and a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine.

After graduating with honours in 2017, I moved to the Cariboo region of BC and began practicing as a Naturopathic Doctor in the towns of Williams Lake and 100 Mile House.

After 3 years in the Cariboo, my partner and I (and our cat) relocated to Southern Alberta in the summer of 2020 to be closer to family. Now in Lethbridge, I am excited to begin practicing at The Medicine Tree and offering high quality, nutritionally-focused care to residents of Lethbridge and beyond!

I am excited to work both with people seeking to improve their health and with people experiencing health challenges seeking to improve their quality of life and wellbeing. As a Naturopathic Doctor, I try to assess the underlying reason(s) for a person’s health concerns, and then find ways to help their body function better so that those health concerns don’t happen in the first place – treating the cause, if you will.

My approach to almost all health and wellness concern is a nutritional one, seeking to help build the body up so that it works better and health challenges improve.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitat nne to reach out to to info@drkatiedegroot.ca or book a complementary 15 minute “meet and greet” to discuss how my approach to naturopathic medicine may be able to help you!
