Dr. Brown was born on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Raised by a Registered Nurse, Dr. Brown was highly influenced by her mother’s life in the medical field and always dreamed of becoming a doctor.

Dr. Brown received her Bachelor of Science and Medical Degree from the University of British Columbia. She completed her Residency at Dalhousie University, in Nova Scotia. She is Board Certified in Family Medicine in both the U.S. and Canada. She received the Nevada County “Best Of” award for Best Physician two years running.

Dr. Brown has been serving patients with a diverse array of medical needs for more than 19 years. She began her career in Vancouver, Canada and after marrying an American, and love of her life, she accepted a position in Texas as a Family Physician; this is where she and Kevin grew their family over the next six years and welcomed their three beloved children. After this season, the Browns moved to Northern California to raise their children, where the culture seemed more in line with Dr. Brown’s Canadian roots.

As a highly sought-after Nevada County physician for the past 10 years, Dr. Brown has been addressing standard patient needs in a Family Practice setting and has specific interest and expertise in women’s health issues, hormone replacement therapy, complex thyroid disease, prevention and correction of chronic disease and international travel medicine.

Dr. Brown’s philosophy on creating a happy, healthy lifestyle is to utilize a combination of traditional medicine, routine exercise, healthy nutrition and supplementation, acupuncture/Eastern healing practices and psychotherapy.

Outside of her medical practice, Dr. Brown’s time is devoted to her family, their multiple sports programs and affiliations. She has a passion for travel, is an avid reader, a lover of the arts and theater and is interested in medical anthropology.

“I feel blessed to have the opportunity to join Placer Private Physicians where this direct care medical model embodies my vision of ideal patient care.”
