Dr. Reddy received her Naturopathic Doctorate degree from Bastyr University, one of the leading, accredited Naturopathic Medical schools in the United States.  Prior to medical school, Dr. Reddy attended Cornell University, in New York, where she discovered her calling to practice holistic medicine and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Human Development and pre-medicine.  Dr. Reddy’s medical education has been augmented by over 1000 hours of formal training in the yoga tradition of Krishnamacharya.  She actively integrates the philosophy and practice of yoga into her daily life, as well as her Naturopathic practice.

Before joining the team of practitioners at Coastal Acupuncture and Natural Health, Dr Reddy ran a private practice in Newport Beach. She moved to Southern California 4 years ago after practicing in Oregon. Originally from Chicago, she has also made her home in New York, India, the Pacific Northwest, and California.  When not in her office, Dr. Reddy enjoys being mesmerized by her baby boy, walking her dog on the beach, and cooking healthy food to enjoy with her friends and family from around the world.
