In private practice, Dr. Queen utilizes evidence-based medicine in the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic medical problems to manage disease and promote health.

Dr. Queen is a doctor by day and an idealist by night. “Night time is the time when I dream about how to make the world a better place for people to live healthier lives.” “I care about people and the Earth and my passion for helping, nurturing and teaching inspired me to my career; my vocation”. Her personal motto is “docere, sanare” to teach, to heal.

Her experience in a rural Northern California community shaped her philosophy of food as nutrition and food as nature, and she learned the value of consuming regional, seasonal and organic foods. “Growing up poor, I am sensitive to the issues of food access, food justice and food sustainability.” In her teaching and my writing, she tries to inspire others to think deeply about their relationship to food as a source of nutrition, nature and culture.
