Dr. Kursteen Salter Price was born in France to Canadian parents studying abroad in art and political science.  She is proud to be the first official diploma doctor in her family.  Her great-great-grandfather came to Canada from Scotland and was a traveling, self taught "healer" for the Canadian island of Cape Breton.  She has had the privilege of living and working in Portland, Oregon for over ten years now with her husband and now two daughters.
