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, for 30 years, beginning at age 14 assisting my veterinarian first in the dog kennels and then in the operating room. The act of healing holds never-ending fascination for me. I myself have healed from several critical auto-immune conditions, including Multiple Sclerosis, through the natural methods of Chinese Medicine and nutrition. 

My areas of special interest are:

+ Autoimmune/ Chronic or complicated illnesses

+Nutritional Therapy

+ Women's Health

+ Fertility Specialist, Reproductive Health

+ Pain Management and Remedy

+ Cancer support 

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!
