Health, Humor, Integrity and Love is my mantra. When all these aspects of life are given proper attention we lead a fulfilled and abundant life. This is a manifestation of how we prioritize our lives as well as how we interact with the world.
I am a scientist, holding a BS in Biochemistry and an MS in Organic Chemistry from the University of Oregon. I have done research in biotechnology, I have always been an inquisitive person. This background gives me a unique ability to see into and understand both Western Biomedicine and Oriental Medicine. I began my studies of Acupuncture at Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City. Due to life and family circumstances I transferred schools to finish my studies at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. It is here were I was able to delve deep into my herbal studies. Herbal medicine is my passion and the results I see from acupuncture are too great to not practice.
A huge part of Chinese Medicine involves dietary and lifestyle recommendations. I am sensitive to and have personal experience with special diets including; vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, sugar-free, paleo, diabetic, and food allergies. I have been a vegetarian for 20+ years, vegan for 5+ years and gluten-free for 4 years. I recognize that the same diet does not fit all people and can help you in an open and judgement-free environment.
