I was first exposed to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) while taking classes on the healing arts of energy work and was immediately fascinated by its simplicity of categorizing disease and illness through the elements around us. I truly enjoy the beauty and magic of Chinese medicine and it was actually one of the first things that really resonated and made sense to me given how often I felt lost in the chaotic western world in which I grew up. So, I jumped right in, decided to make it my living and have never looked back!
I have nearly ten years of healing experience in the wellness field. I received my Masters of Traditional Oriental Medicine from one of the leading schools in the industry, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM); studying and building my clinical skills at both their Chicago and New York campuses. During my time at PCOM I sought out professors and mentors with years of clinical expertise and received hundreds of hours of firsthand experience partnering with them in their private practices.
While I love everything TCM, my passions and interests lay in community acupuncture and herbal medicine. I really came to appreciate the healing power of this communal modality while working in a health clinic in rural Nepal. Making this ancient and powerful medicine available and affordable to everyone is my top priority. Being a lover of plants, and understanding their restorative potential, I find it beneficial to use their healing properties to increase the effectiveness of treatments. I excel at preparing custom made herbal formulas, and every formula I create is specifically designed to maximize wellness and balance each patient’s unique body and energy.
It is my goal in life to help everyone realize his or her maximum potential, reach this potential and to smile along the way. I am a huge advocate of spreading positivity and empowering you to be accountable and in control of your own good health. Together with Lisa’s and my knowledge and expertise, this amazing medicine can help you and our community, live and fulfill our perfect existence.
