About Angela Ross,
Naturopathic Physician and Founder
Dr. Angela Ross is the founder and owner of Lifespan Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. Angela has lived in West Seattle since 2005 and was thrilled to serve the community by offering another health care option for 6 years from 2014 to 2020. Dr. Ross absolutely loved taking excellent care of patients, but she was recently offered an opportunity that she could not refuse: In July 2020, Angela was hired as the Executive Director of the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians (WANP). This full time position allows Dr. Angela to advocate for naturopathic medicine on a much larger scale than she was able to do while in private practice providing 1-on-1 patient care. On embarking on this new career adventure, Dr. Ross decided to take a hiatus from patient care. For the time being, she is not accepting new patients as she gets herself situated in her new position. Stay tuned for updates!
When she is not actively involved in protecting and advancing naturopathic medicine in Washington State, Angela enjoys remodeling her house, practicing meditation and qigong, cuddling with her two cats, socializing with her friends and family, dancing to her partner’s band (Holy Pistola!), exploring the greater Seattle area, engaging in meaningful conversation, and traveling to “the other Washington” (pre-quarantine) to visit her three (yes, three) niblings (official term for one’s sibling’s offspring). Since COVID hit, she has thoroughly enjoyed exploring area trails for regular jogs with her partner. She also rejoined her favorite local gym, HIIT Lab, and loves challenging her body and increasing her strength through physically distanced outdoor work outs.
Dr. Ross is incredibly passionate about naturopathic medicine and believes it has something to offer everybody. She is honored and delighted to be able to share this passion and knowledge with her patients, her community, and now with a much larger audience in her new role.
