For more than 25 years Dr. Teri Collins has been educating healthcare workers and caring for patients. Dr. Collins—a board certified naturopathic physician and registered nurse—lives on a 100-acre ranch in rural east Texas. In 2003, she received her doctorate from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Arizona and in 1997 she received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Armstrong Atlantic State University in Georgia.
During her career, Dr. Collins has taught in graduate and undergraduate, technical, and hospital-based programs, and in programs for the general public. As a care provider she has worked with patients in both conventional and alternative medicine settings. Her primary area of focus is in the conventional medical arena, and as a registered nurse she's focused on emergency and cardiac medicine. As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Collins has maintained a private general medicine practice that draws various clients with a wide range of conditions.
When she is not teaching or caring for patients, Dr. Collins enjoys spending time with her husband and four boys on their ranch where they raise feathered horses, labrador retrievers, chickens, and a pygmy goat named Bugsy.
