"My interest in serving the community and helping others has long been a passion of mine. Prior to acupuncture, I was an educator and health professions adviser, guiding students in achieving their own educational goals and aspirations. While living abroad for several years I enjoyed learning about other cultures, where I served as an English teacher. It was then I was introduced to acupuncture by a Chinese medical doctor from China who had started me on a path to relieving migraines that I had been suffering with for many years. Together my experience and education lead me to further enriching my knowledge and learning how to help others in achieving their own pathway to health with Chinese Medicine."
