Laura has a deep passion for kids and absolutely loves being a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. She also has a passion for mission work. On four separate occasions, she has served on the ground in Desarmes, Haiti with an organization called Breath of Life Haiti.

Amanda Watters, ND
Amanda Watters, ND joined Integrative Pediatrics as the first Naturopathic Doctor provider in 2018 after nearly 4 years of mentorship from Dr. Paul. She is also an attending physician and Course Co-director for Pediatrics & Geriatrics at National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM). She graduated from NUNM where she then completed three years of residency, and was the Chief Resident in her final year. In 2017 she also served as the University’s Lead Pediatric Clinician for the Soy Sano/I’m Healthy Grant, which helped provide access to medical care for uninsured pediatric patients.

Dr. Watters offers workshops on Suicide Prevention and trains medical providers and students to skillfully invite an open dialogue on the subject. She finds that the first place we must all start is with ourselves – we have to become more comfortable and skilled in having conversations about mental illness before we can expect others to do the same. When not practicing medicine, you can find her spending time with her partner exploring the Portland Japanese Garden, frequenting their favorite Thai food restaurant, or planning her next adventure abroad.

When she’s not practicing medicine, Dr. Surprenant can be found either in the woods hiking with her dog Lucas or in her kitchen putting an anti-inflammatory spin on favorite recipes.
