Samantha Evans, ND
Education & Experience
Dr. Samantha Evans received her undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology and Chemistry Western New England College in Massachusetts. She went on to pursue a position as a phlebotomist which sparked an interest in chronic disease. It was there that she decided to pursue a medical degree at Bastyr University.
While studying at Bastyr, she developed an attraction to Naturopathic Neurology and studied under two other neurological specialists: Dr. Marco Vespignani and Dr. Laurie Mischley. While attending classes, Dr. Evans spent her time outside of school hours as a research assistant in Parkinson’s Disease for Dr. Mischley, volunteering for Parkinson’s support groups and observing patients diagnosed with a wide range of neurological conditions with Dr. Marco. These experiences broadened Dr. Evans’ knowledge in neurology until she graduated from Bastyr University. Dr. Evans is now Drs. Marco and Mischley’s 2nd year resident physician and cares for their patients as well as her own on a regular basis.
While at Bastyr University, Dr. Evans broadened her experience in mind/body connection. Dr. Evans individualizes her medical and physical treatments for each patient based on research, patient preference and traditional therapies.
More than anything, Dr. Evans strives to help patients understand what may be happening in their bodies. She finds that the better a patient can understand what is happening with their body, the more empowered they become and the more likely they are to take action on their health.
