From a young age I was fascinated with health, medicine and the human body. One of my first jobs was working in a women’s health clinic. My interest in Chinese Medicine started at the age of 21 when I came down with Bell’s Palsy. With only two acupuncture treatments and some Chinese herbs the Bell’s Palsy was gone. This introduction to acupuncture and herbs spawned my interest in integrating women’s health with Chinese Medicine. More recently, I was able to overcome ovarian cysts and have a healthy pregnancy and baby using acupuncture and Chinese herbs. My responsibility as a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner is to help patients achieve their goals by meeting them at their comfort level. I take the time to get to know each patient and then design treatment plans that move them through their journey to better health. Like any other path in life, personal health is a practice. Initiating this practice begins by taking small steps every day. I am a California licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine. I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of San Francisco. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Masters Degree from Emperors College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2007 and opened a successful acupuncture practice in San Diego. I have also interned with some of the top fertility practitioners in California. A native of San Francisco, being closer to family was the main reason for my relocation back to the Bay Area. A new resident of Santa Rosa, I am committed to providing compassionate quality healthcare to people in Sonoma County.
