Dr. Babette Saenz (MPA, DOM, MITS) was a renowned Doctor of Oriental Medicine in Albuquerque and a strong proponent of integrated medicine. She was deeply committed to the profession of healing and continued to give of herself even beyond her physical life here on earth through her decision to become an organ donor. Babette was an active member of Legacy Church and local community and impacted many lives through her selfless dedication to others. After the tragic loss of her son at the age of 16, Babette felt called to guide other mothers through loss & provided grief counseling in her church community.
