Dr. Pearce grew up as Danielle Phillips-Dorsett in southern Vermont, skiing (and mostly snowboarding), hiking, camping and developing an admiration of the natural world. She was drawn west for college and quickly learned to appreciate wide-open spaces and endless mountains! She was a student athletic trainer, coached the women's lacrosse team, swam and played soccer for Whitman College. After graduation she became a licensed massage therapist, worked for the court system as a case manager and spent a summer as a wildland firefighter, all while searching for a profession to leave an impact on others.
When she learned about naturopathic medicine, it was a no brainer to jump right in! Combining the laws of the natural world, the science of the human body and the art of working with others to find the best in themselves- she couldn't think of a better fit. The practical Vermonter in her said, "this makes total sense, this is how I want to help others and create a career of lifelong learning." Danielle completed naturopathic medical school at Bastyr University in Seattle, WA. She took advanced training in hormonal health, women's health, environmental medicine, whole foods nutrition and preparation, botanical medicine, IV therapy, sports medicine and integrative oncology.
She went on to a 2 year residency in Billings, MT with the Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic (YNC) and Frontier Cancer Center, now Cancer Centers of Montana- St. Vincent. She primarily saw patients with cancer through St. Vincent's and complex chronic disease, women's health and pediatrics at YNC. The six years spent at YNC was under the mentorship of Dr. Margaret Beeson, one of the premier naturopathic physicians in the country. She became Dr. Danielle Pearce when she decided it was a good idea to marry a railroader (she's still smitten). Along with a move to Whitefish in 2020, came their first child, what a year!
Before opening a clinic in Whitefish, coming 2025, Dr. Pearce is taking time to raise her children while starting to see patients in a limited capacity in the privacy of their home. She looks forward to serving the community. You may see Dr. Pearce out on the Whitefish trails with her husband, little ones and chocolate lab. Please say hi!
Mountain Valley Naturopathic will be opening a clinic in Whitefish, Montana in the coming years. Right now Dr. Pearce is working part-time while spending time with her children in their early years. When open, you'll be able to schedule for the full complement of naturopathic family medical services, including women's well exams, pediatric appointments and specialized treatment.
