My name is Natalie DeWitt. I’m an Assistant Professor of Community Health at Western Oregon University in the Division of Health & Physical Education. My students call me Dr. D!
I earned my PhD in Health Behavior, with a minor in the Anthropology of Food, from Indiana University in 2013. My masters degree is in School and College Health Programs (also from IU) and my undergraduate training resulted in a BS in Secondary Health Education. I am licensed to teach 7-12th graders health & safety in Indiana.
I live in Salem, Oregon, with my partner, Tyler, and our two cats (Bitty, 8 and Reggie, 5) and dog (Arlo, 1 1/2).
I’m an Indiana native–I grew up in the rural areas outside of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and I spent 12 years living in Bloomington, Indiana, one of the greatest cities on earth!
I enjoy baking & being creative, Minecraft, Foo Fighters, and Doctor Who. I’m a geek at heart.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
