I am an educator, clinician, writer and publisher in the field of natural health care.
My purpose is, through clinical practice and teaching, to co-create a world of vital, resilient people who boldly make their contribution in the world. I believe that if every natural healthcare professional embodied excellent patient care and had a successful practice, we would, together, create a culture shift to a new default lifestyle of nature first, drugs last.
I hold New York licenses in acupuncture, dietetics-nutrition and massage therapy, a Colorado license in acupuncture, and am a Doctor of Acupuncture in Rhode Island. I combine clinical nutrition, acupuncture, herbal therapy and Asian bodywork to help people heal, grow and evolve.
I earned my Master’s degree in acupuncture from the New York College of Health Professions (nycollege.edu) where I was a faculty member for ten years. I also received undergraduate degrees in massage therapy, health sciences and advanced Amma therapy (Asian Bodywork Therapy). I am a Certified Instructor and former state representative of the American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia (aobta.org).
I am also a pianist and composer. My passion is to give, love and serve through teaching, hands-on therapies and writing. I seek to help patients and health professionals live and serve from the place of their greatest potential.
