Dr. Kalli Keddie

Dr. Jessica Black My name is Kalli Keddie I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, naturopathic doctor… in that order. Simply put family is everything to me. When asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I always said a mom, knowing I wanted to care for others. Being a naturopathic doctor allows me to provide care for individuals and their loved ones; which brings me great joy.

I started my journey in natural medicine in 2007 as a colon hydro-therapist and digestive health consultant. I enjoy educating patient’s on nutrition and how their bodies work. My passion for education called me to return to school becoming a naturopathic physician. I completed my residency at A Family Healing Center in Portland and McMinnville, OR in May 2018. I graduated medical school from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Tempe, AZ in 2016. Prior to SCNM I attended National University of Health Sciences and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with an undergraduate degree in biomedical sciences. I have worked in numerous naturopathic clinics in Wisconsin, Australia, Arizona and now Oregon, where I currently practice at A Family Healing Center in Mcminnville, Oregon.

I like to work with a diverse patient population and really enjoy pediatrics. I utilize therapies in nutrition, botanical and homeopathic medicine. As a primary care provider I see women, children and men with general medicine concerns. This includes but not limited to GI health concerns, Diabetes, Weight loss, Women’s health, Thyroid concerns and Pediatrics.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with Alex (my husband) Bray and Toula (my children) and Reggie (our dog). I like to travel, run, cook, eat and enjoy a good glass of wine.
