I'm a Michigan native. As a young child, I played a game with my sister Carrie where I would mix up healing 'potions' made of sticks and leaves found in our backyard. I pretended to be a healer and prescribe the 'potions' to patients. These early childhood games were the first underpinnings of what would eventually become a life-long study and practice of Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, and Qigong.
I am deeply passionate about bridging the gaps between Traditional Chinese Medicine and Biomedical paradigms. I participated in NIH funded clinical research in acupuncture at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
My practice style is ever-evolving to include the latest research findings and recommended protocols, as our understanding of the medicine grows. This growth happens against the backdrop of my TCM diagnostic skills, offering you a rich and valuable experience.
