Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with sadness and excitement that I share the following news with you. Even though my intention was to return to Carp Ridge after maternity leave in April my plans have changed. Now that we have two little ones, we are really feeling the distance from family more than ever. Therefore, we have made the bittersweet decision to move back stateside so that our children can grow up knowing family better, and we can have that “village” support in raising them.
This decision is exciting and difficult at the same time. Carp is where I began my naturopathic career path and you have been the wise teachers that have guided me along the first few bends. I will never forget the lessons. It has been my true pleasure to work with each of you, and I thank you from my heart for sharing your lives with me. What a privilege.
Carp Ridge boasts a very talented staff of practitioners. Kealy Mann, ND has been seeing patients in my absence and I have full confidence in her ability to foster your healing journey. Martha Ahmadi, ND has been at Carp Ridge for several years and would also be an excellent choice. Seth Yates, ND is at Carp one night per week for those with tight daytime schedules. Katherine Willow, ND is not taking new patients at this time, but as our veteran ND she had always made herself available to consult on difficult cases.
It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with each of you. I will very much miss seeing each of you and watching you and your families grow. I wish each of you fulfillment, wellness and much joy in 2011. Thank you for all you have taught me along the way.
Yours in health,
Rebecca R. Word ND
