I fell in love with Chinese Medicine while working as a veterinary technician back in 2001. This particular vet was quite ahead of her time, utilizing acupuncture and herbal medicine in her practice. I watched a Great Dane be carried in on a stretcher, his arthritis made it hard for him to walk on the slick floor. After his acupuncture treatment, he walked himself right out of the clinic.

I was pre-vet at the time, but was so impressed by the work she was doing I immediately changed my plans and enrolled in Chinese Medicine school at Yo San University in Marina Del Rey CA. I completed the 4-year Masters degree program in 2008 and became California State Board licensed in 2009.

I have worked in the field of medicine, human and animal, Western and Eastern, since I was 14. The act of healing holds never-ending fascination for me. I myself have healed from several critical auto-immune conditions through the natural methods of Chinese Medicine and nutrition. 

When I am not doing the work I love, you will most likely find me out riding and spending time with my horses, my other passion!
