Following medical school, she completed a competitive two-year residency at the Yellowstone Naturopathic Clinic in Billings, MT – the leading natural medical center in the Rocky Mountain Region. During her residency, Dr. Brayko worked with an array of conventional medical specialists and gained extensive experience treating a wide range of conditions in men, women, and children.

Prior to medical school, Dr. Brayko graduated magna cum laude with a Master’s degree in Architecture and practiced extensively in MT and CA. It was then that she discovered biomimetics, a science that studies nature’s models and then applies these designs and processes to solve issues of the human body. While exploring the complex systems and structures of the human body she became hooked. Dr. Brayko continues to look to nature as a teacher, as an inspiration, and as a “design solution” to bring us closer to optimal health.
As a native of Montana, she loves all things nature and when not in the office she can be found adventuring in it. She is excited to continue to discover all the amazing offerings of the great pacific NW.
