Amanda Daniella Garcia is a third year Naturopathic Medical Student at Canadian College of Naturopathic medicine in Toronto. Born and raised in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, she has always valued community and knowledge. These values ultimately brought her to medicine after realizing her true passion lies in educating and empowering people with knowledge on how to live healthier lifestyles.
She got involved in her local CCNM NMSA chapter from the beginning of her naturopathic journey as the social media chair, then president-elect, and now president. She is excited to work alongside her board this year to strengthen connections within the community and hopefully host in-person events. When she isn’t studying for classes, planning NMSA events, or uncovering new places to eat, she is working on her small business, SANA Plantas Curan. Her business is all about educating people on herbal properties in English and Spanish, and selling some homemade herbal products on Etsy.
