Dr. Brinkley completed her Bachelor of Arts at UC Berkeley, majoring in Integrative Biology. While studying at Berkeley she was inspired to become a Naturopathic Doctor after interning with a holistic medical doctor. After graduating from Bastyr University she practiced in Seattle where she saw a wide variety of patients. Having grown up in California she was eager to move back and has been practicing in the Sacramento area since 2014, 9 years of that time in a larger group practice. She is excited to be one of the founders of Integrity Naturopathic to continue to serve her patients.
Although Dr. Brinkley enjoys general family practice, she has a special passion for working with women and children. Jamie has always been fascinated by the intricacies of the human body, especially the female reproductive system. Through additional training in midwifery she has gained tremendous experience in this regard, including a unique appreciation of the value and application of natural health strategies during and after pregnancy. This includes breastfeeding concerns, emotional changes, and physical issues following pregnancy.
Dr. Brinkley provides well woman care and helps women struggling with menstrual irregularities from adolescence to menopause. She is also dedicated to helping women optimize their fertility using non-invasive, natural methods such as herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutraceutical supplementation, diet and lifestyle modification, and physical medicine when appropriate. She believes in an individualized, patient-centered approach and seeks to empower her patients by emphasizing education in her office visits.
When not practicing medicine, Dr. Brinkley is at home spending time with her husband and young son, or reading the latest fiction novel. She is also a huge movie buff.
