FARGO—When Tonya Loken tells people she is a naturopathic doctor, the most common response she gets is, "Oh, you don't have dreadlocks." "I get that a lot," she said. "I often do free 15-minute consults so people can meet me and realize I'm not a crazy witch doctor who has a cauldron in the back." Loken wants patients to know she didn't become a naturopathic doctor because she doesn't believe in modern medicine.
FARGO—Madison Christensen was the only girl in the sixth-grade tech club at Agassiz Middle School in 2004. Her friends didn't share or understand her interest in computers, but her brother encouraged her to stick with it. "I just remember my brother saying, 'Maddie, if you like it, do it. You don't need to follow what other people are doing,' " Christensen said. "I'm glad he did that."
