Katy Wallace will speak on "Overcoming a Sensitive Stomach Naturally." Katy holds a Doctor of Naturopathy (ND) degree from Trinity College of Natural Health and became a Certified Natural Health Professional in 2007. In addition to her coursework in traditional naturopathy, she apprenticed as a nutrition consultant with a naturopathic clinic. There she cultivated a special interest in the use of food to address health issues. She has since completed over 200 hours of continuing education in the area of holistic nutrition. She also holds a Master's degree from the Institute for Environmental Studies at the UW–Madison and a Bachelor's degree in Geology and Environmental Sciences from Carleton College in Minnesota.
