Dr. Solomon worked in a small rural town in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California for 20 years. Initially, as part of a group and then for 10 years in her own integrative medical practice. During that time she took an additional interest in Addiction Medicine.

During that tenure she became Board Certified in Addiction Medicine. She went on to become the Medical Director and help open a dual diagnosis (Mental Health and Substance use disorders) Integrative day treatment center in Santa Cruz, CA.
In 2017 she decided “it was her turn to teach” and she did a nationwide search for the right fit. She was fortunate to be hired on as full time faculty at the Montana Family Practice Residency (part of WWAMI) in 2018 and is now also an Associate Clinical Professor through the University of Washington.
As a faculty physician she is able to further the education of Family Practice Residents especially in matters of Addiction and Integrative Medicine.
