Dr. KARA DIONISIO, B.Sc, M.Sc, ND
Naturopathic Doctor & Clinic Director
Dr. Kara Dionisio B.sc, M.sc, ND is a self-proclaimed science and medicine nerd. She is a badass lady doc on a mission to elevate medicine by adding 'health' to healthcare through empowerment, collaboration and logic. She balances the letters behind her name with a dose of creativity and an unsuspecting sense of humour. She is the clinical director of Health Squad where she is curating some of the coolest health professionals around 'The Sound.’ In her spare time she is mom to two adorable feisty kids Elly and Leo, and wife to some unfortunate Irish dude who really yearns for some potatoes instead of a gluten free goddess bowl.
IF you want the "official" version, here it is:
