Jesse Rich, M.S.
My passion for health began at an early age. I was lucky enough to be raised in a household where homemade family dinners were regular and physical activity was essentially required. At the age of 21 I began trail running competitively in the beautiful Wasatch Mountains in Utah. Taking my body to new limits required honing in on my diet and recovery so I could sustain energy through 50 mile without feeling dead the next day. I have had to learn through trial and error and most definitely have had my ups and downs through the process.
I began my academic journey investing my interests and time in the medical field. With the goal of becoming a Physician's Assistant, I received my medical assisting certificate to begin clinical work. While exposed to the fast paced environment of the clinic, I felt that effective patient care was lacking and my interest in the field declined. I then pursued my interests in literary arts and obtained my Bachelors degree in Spanish from Utah State University. However, after graduation I still had a yearning to work in the medical field, but I needed to find a different way. I was lucky to have found naturopathic medicine. A holistic approach to health that takes the whole body into account and investigates the root cause of the problem rather then just the symptoms truly resonated with me. I moved to Oregon and graduated from the National College of Natural Medicine with a masters in nutrition. I continue to push my limits on the trails and enjoy sharing what I have learned through my body and my education with others.
