I graduated from Bastyr University in 2000 with a Master’s of Science Degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. For the past 11 years I have practiced Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine at integrated multidisciplinary clinics in Seattle specializing in pain management, sports medicine, traumatic injury and women’s health.
I was born in Seattle, raised in San Diego- moving back to Seattle in 1979.
I enjoy skiing, travel, reading and volunteering; I have discovered the immense pleasure one feels when volunteering my time, labor or skills-it is positively addicting. I have provided acupuncture services with the UW Adolescent Medicine and Children’s Hospital Free Teen Clinic at the Country Doctor on Capital Hill, traveled with Acupuncturists Without Borders to New Orleans for the Katrina response in 2006 and volunteer my time as needed for the Seattle Men’s and Women’s Chorus, the Seattle Art Museum and Gilda’s Club in Seattle.
