Dr. Jessica Schule is a naturopathic doctor that is dedicated to empowering and educating patients while providing high-quality naturopathic care. She received her BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. She used her Biochemistry undergraduate studies as a stepping-stone completing her medical pre-requisites, allowing her to continue her medical education at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, New Westminster, BC, Canada.
However, before she began formal training, Dr. Schule has practiced naturopathic medicine at an early age through her Native American background. During her time as a youth, sports were a major highlight, as she spent most of her time playing high-level competitive soccer, provincially, nationally, and internationally. It was during her injury and recovery that she spent time learning and applying the principles of physical medicine, nutrition, and botanical medicine.
Dr. Schule utilizes a patient-centered care approach in her practice. She believes in finding the root cause and gathering resources for medically informed decision making based on her patient’s unique needs.
Dr. Jessica Schule received her Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry from the University of Saskatchewan. During her time in her undergraduate studies, she volunteered with SWITCH (Student Wellness Initiative Towards Community Health), played varsity soccer with the University of Saskatchewan Women’s Huskies Team, and worked with the Northern Medical Services to strengthen their cultural sensitivity program with doctors in Northern Saskatchewan communities.
Dr. Jessica Schule graduated from Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine (BINM). She held the First Nations Initiative Chair with the Global Health committee, bringing in Indigenous speakers and elders to lecture at BINM. During her medical studies, Dr. Schule was an integral part of building community relationships which led to the first student initiative for an external clinic site with Katzie First Nation. (BINM)
Graduating from Boucher Institute in 2016 Dr. Jessica Schule developed and expanded her skills in physical medicine, botanical medicine, and nutrition. She has experience with Native American and HIV/AIDS populations, along with women’s health, mental health, endocrine health, and musculoskeletal injuries.
