My passion for medicine has been lifelong. I knew at a young age that “when I grew up” I wanted to care for and help people. My journey began at the University of Vermont studying Bio/Pre-Med. Then the gypsy in me, led me to California. At Humboldt State University, as a Botany major I studied Western Herbology, and built a solid understanding about the medicinal properties of plants. I was introduced to Chinese Medicine at this time and combined my learnings to pursue the path of becoming an acupuncturist.
I graduated from Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, NM in 2006. Following graduation I completed clinical internships in Beijing at China Japan Friendship Hospital and at the Beijing Traditional Medicine Training Center. I have been practicing for 13 years now and I can honestly say, that I fall more in-love with Chinese Medicine everyday. I love working with people, assisting them to live their very best lives. As a yoga and barre teacher, and a practitioner of meditation, I incorporate all of my knowledge along dietary and lifestyle recommendations to create the most comprehensive and individualized treatment for each of my patients. I feel honored and humbled to do this work. I would love to talk with you more and guide you on your path to health, happiness & peace.
