Patti Bartsch, M.A., Ph.D.

Patti Barsch

Patti Bartsch, M.A., Ph.D. fell in love with biology in 7th grade when she learned about the skeletal system. A few years later she entered a special program where she studied Animal Science beginning in 10th grade. She went on to earn a bachelor's degree in Animal Science, a master's degree in biology and two doctorates; one in Natural Health and Wellness and one in Animal Naturopathy. She is passionate about natural health and wellness for both humans and animals.

Unique for someone in the natural health field, Dr. Bartsch spent nearly eight years in the biotechnology industry conducting oncology and pharmacology research. She talks about how when she started in the field, they were looking for a cure for cancer but by the time she left the industry they were no longer looking for a cure; they were looking for a drug that would keep your cancer from growing and spreading so you would need to take that drug for the rest of your life or your cancer would spread. She left that career for a position as an Animal Nutritionist specializing in equine nutrition and she went on to become a high school teacher and department head for biotechnology and animal science departments at two schools in Massachusetts.
