She also holds a pharmaceutical prescribing licence in the province of British Columbia, a recent addition to the scope of practice for Naturopathic Doctors in BC. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology (B.Sc.) from the University of British Columbia in 1998, and later pursued a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) in 2000 at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto.

After graduation in 2004 and completion of her licensing exams in 2005, Dr. Sjovold returned to her home town of Hope, B.C. to set up a small practice. In 2008, she relocated and joined the team of practitioners at the Family Health Clinic in Langley where she worked for four and half years alongside Drs. Ted Sleigh and Cathy Carlson-Rink, two highly respected and experienced naturopathic physicians. In the spring of 2012, she joined the team of practitioners at the Integrated Health Clinic in Fort Langley, B.C. where she plays an integral part in providing nutritional consultation for patients of the Cancer Care Centre.

Dr. Sjovold’s practice encompasses general family medicine with a special interest in allergies, digestive conditions and neurotransmitter/hormone imbalances.  She is a member of the Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians (pedANP).  Dr. Sjovold strongly believes that Naturopathic Medicine should be an integral part of any health care plan. Having grown up in a family that has always embraced alternative forms of healing and having experienced chronic illness herself, she not only has a passion but a deep appreciation for the art of healing.
