Dr. Fabianna Marie, ND, affectionately known as “Dr. Fab,” received her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree from Bastyr University with the goal of holistically restoring her patients to health with the kind of commitment and devotion that only someone who has walked through the fire could understand.
In 2005, happily married with a one-year-old daughter, Fabianna Marie was diagnosed with BRCA1-positive, triple-negative, metastatic breast cancer.
What began with a lupus diagnosis following her complicated pregnancy quickly escalated to the discovery of a tumor, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Three months after completing treatment, she received the horribly unexpected news that the cancer had spread and was given only a few short years to live. In an effort to save her life and combat the side effects of over 150 rounds of chemo and a deteriorating kidney, the twenty-seven-year-old former pageant queen turned to naturopathic medicine where she discovered the power of nature and her passion for wellness.
Today, Dr. Fab treats clients nationwide through virtual sessions with the same unmatched dedication and attention to detail that began her personal journey. Her quest for the best products available to support patients going through cancer treatment and managing conditions such as autoimmune disease, hormone imbalance, chronic pain, and anxiety led to the creation of her wellness line, ZenVeda.
Dr. Fab continues to thrive with breast cancer every day, armoring herself with knowledge. With over twelve hundred hours of continuing education and counting, she has earned certifications from Harvard, Yale, and Johns Hopkins in advanced education for breast cancer, mental health, and autoimmune disease. She also became a best-selling author when she took her story to print as an inspirational resource for other warriors with the launch of her first book Fabulously Fighting in November 2016 and its second edition Fabulously Fighting Uncensored in October 2020.
A sought-after voice in her community and beyond, Dr. Fab is a beacon of hope through her unique experience as a survivor, doctor, and an entrepreneur. She has been a guest speaker at many charity and fundraising events for national cancer organizations like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Susan G. Komen, and Breastcancer.org, and has appeared in a national ad campaign for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Dr. Fab has been a featured wellness expert on ABC and NBC, a contributor to Woman’s Day magazine, an inductee into the National Association of Professional Women where she received the 2017 Women of the Year Award and 2018-2019 International Woman of the Year Award, and in 2020, she received the extreme honor of becoming a Global Health Ambassador for the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians. Never losing her passion for performance, Dr. Fab has sung the national anthem for the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, the Boston Bruins at TD Garden, and has headlined entertainment for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides walk on the Hatch Shell stage in Boston, MA. Though she notes these as some of her proudest accomplishments, Dr. Fab’s greatest pride comes from witnessing her patients become empowered in their health, laughing every day with her husband, Dave, and watching their beautiful daughter Kenzie, now seventeen, grow up.
