Licensed Acupuncturist, Licensed Massage Therapist
I'm originally from a small town in the Rocky Mountains of southwestern Colorado. Growing up, I always enjoyed helping people and helping them feel better. I knew that I wanted to go into healthcare, but I also knew that I wanted to practice something that help the body to heal without having to perform surgery or prescribe drugs.
The answer came when I first met an acupuncturist. The way that she described the body from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine made complete sense to me. I knew that practicing something that helped the body to heal and regulate itself through the use of needles and herbal medicine was exactly the approach that I wanted to take.
I began my education at Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington when I enrolled in their Masters degree program in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I graduated in the Fall of 2018. I am nationally certified by the NCCAOM, and have received my license to practice from the Oregon Medical Board.
