While there, she joined a homeopathy study group started by good friend and life mentor, Vicki Lockwood. Currently she has a private practice, North Shore Naturopathic and Acupuncture.
Cronin completed her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and masters in Acupuncture at Bastyr University in Washington, the leading accredited university for science-based natural medicine.
