She is the co-founder of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, where she currently teaches nutrition/biochemistry and pediatrics.

Currently she focuses on overall prevention of illness. She also supervises acupuncture and naturopathic students at the naturopathic school clinic. She is also currently writing a book about integrating natural and conventional medicine. Dr. Ambrose tries to utilize natural therapeutics as well as lifestyle counseling to address patient's symptoms when they come. Patients' pain leads them to discover their physical weakness, which can be countered by changing lifestyle. Illness can lead to a deeper understanding of self and if addressed appropriately prevent potentially fatal illnesses in the future. Illnesses like autoimmune disorders, neurological diseases, infections, chronic pain, can be treated gently and naturally without toxic medications. This takes support, encouragement by the physician, and determination on the patients' part. Overall the most utilized medicine of all in her practice is love and laughter. Dr. Ambrose is working with several colleagues to found a hospital which uses integrative care.
