Sara Alvarado naturopathic doctor and midwifeDr. Sara Alvarado
Naturopathic Doctor and Licensed Midwife

Dr. Sara hails from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. She wanted to be a health care provider as long as she can remember and most of what she did in her formative years was aimed at discovering what kind of practitioner and human she wanted to be. During college, she worked as a health educator and a labor organizer for a health care workers union. “My heart has always been in grassroots organizing and my college years were filled with this.”

After graduating from college, Dr. Sara spent a year working as a case manager with AmeriCorps for individuals experiencing homelessness in Austin, Texas and strategizing about how to best provide quality healthcare for families and increase access to such care. This led her to Naturopathic Medicine and Midwifery at Bastyr University.
