My practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine has evolved over 20 years of experience in the alternative medicine field. The scope of my practice includes acupuncture, western and eastern herbal medicine, dietary therapy, exercise and healthy lifestyle changes. Chinese medicine is a system of healing which facilitates each patient’s unique healing process. Traditional Chinese Medicine offers the grounding of a 3,500-year-old medical model of healing which does not exclude the benefits and advances of biomedical medicine.
I started my study of complementary medicine with a traditional midwife and herbalist as an apprentice. I studied the herbs of North and South America Traveling between North America and Central America to study and work with plants. This knowledge was passed down by traditional methods and is invaluable to me in my practice today. After four years of studying Western Herbal Medicine, I felt it was essential to now become an expert in not only biomedical medicine but Acupuncture and Eastern Herbal Medicine as well. Pacific college’s rigorous program allowed me to accomplish this.

I earned my Masters degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York City and I am currently enrolled in the Doctorate program at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
