SACRAMENTO – Two women face felony charges in Nevada County for allegedly practicing medicine without a license.

An investigation led by the Department of Consumer Affairs’ Division of Investigation Sacramento Field Office found Catherine Miller of Sacramento was falsely claiming to be a Naturopathic Doctor and Nancy Naumann of Grass Valley was falsely claiming to be a Physician Assistant. Each also faces a felony conspiracy charge and four misdemeanor charges.

Investigators found that in 2011 and 2013 Miller and Naumann advertised on Web sites with false and misleading statements about their qualifications. In 2007, Miller had been previously issued a citation by the Board of Registered Nursing for misidentifying herself as a Registered Nurse.

Miller and Naumann were ordered to appear in Nevada County Superior Court on October 6, 2014. Naumann was arraigned and her next court appearance is scheduled for November 20, 2014. Miller failed to appear in court and a warrant for her arrest has been issued.
