I like to say that Traditional Chinese Medicine found me as opposed to the other way around. In the midst of studying pre med and bodywork, I had my first introduction to Chinese medicine theory through meridian massage and yin yang theory. The very first time I experienced acupuncture and cupping, I was hooked.
Studying Chinese medicine has changed the way I view and think about the world and life, and I love to share the insights and connections its given me. While in school, I trained in multiple specialty clinics including Oncology, HIV/AIDs, and Addiction/Methadone. I have studied under practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Japanese Acupuncture, and Five Element. While in Shanghai and Chengdu, I studied with Doctors of Chinese Medicine in multiple specialities including cardiology, gynecology, fertility, dermatology, pediatrics, rheumatology, and traumatology.
I love to combine all of these modalities and tools to offer patients the best treatment possible. Coming from a background in bodywork, I believe in the power of touch, the body's natural ability to heal itself, and the ancient art of Chinese medicine to gain the optimum level of health and enjoyment from life.
Through my time with the practice and all that comes with being a small business owner, I've come to realize my love for design and am currently pursuing a degree in fashion design. Jackie and I remain fully committed to keeping Pulse running with the same care and love we started it with, and we can't wait to make our way back to all of our wonderful and supportive community at Pulse.
