I received my Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) where I studied Acupuncture, Chinese Herbology, Western Biomedicine, Zen Shiatsu Bodywork, and several other adjunctive manual therapies. I am a board certified Diplomate with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and a Licensed Acupuncturist with the Oregon Medical Board.
Coming from a Language and Performing Arts background prior to attending OCOM, I love dealing with the complexities of the human body. I have always believed that movement may be used as a tool for personal healing and growth. It is for this reason that I resonate with the individualized and tactile nature of acupuncture and Eastern medicine. It is my belief that by looking at each individual patient as a whole, rather than a list of symptoms, I may better serve them to achieve good health and balance.
When I’m not in the clinic, I’m often teaching dance or spending time with my loving family and our spunky corgis Una and Pippin.
I look forward to working with you to achieve your health goals.
