In 1972, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in sociology, with a minor in psychology, from the University of New Orleans. At the end of this period, I decided I was going to study exercise physiology, as I planned on being a professional springboard diving coach. I received my master's in exercise physiology from the University of Southern Mississippi, with an emphasis in cardiac rehabilitation.

My interest in Chinese medicine was an outgrowth of a lifelong interest in Asian philosophy and culture. I first read Jane English's translation of the Tao Te Ching with my judo class in the eighth grade. In 1993 after completing a bachelor of science degree and a teaching certificate at the University of Colorado, I took a leave of absence from my teaching job and went to acupuncture school. I graduated from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1996. After graduation I traveled to Asia and returned to practice in Boulder, Colorado from 1997–2004.

My interest in Chinese Medicine began when I was in my 20s and working at the Chinese Acupuncture Clinic as an Acupuncture Assistant. In working around the medicine, I saw how profoundly it could change not only a person’s health but their spirit. It was these changes that became the driving force for my studies in Biology during my undergraduate years and then my later move to Asheville for Chinese Medical School. During my schooling, I continued to work at the Chinese Acupuncture Clinic as the Herbal manager which augmented my herbal education even further.

My journey towards Chinese Medicine began with my love of nature, healthy food and plant medicine, as ways to find peace and healing in my life. After graduating from college, I worked with children in the foster care system in Vermont. As part of our regular educational meetings, a local acupuncturist spoke about emotional healing with children through the lens of Chinese Medicine. This talk introduced a brand new and holistic way of thinking about medicine that led me to receiving acupuncture regularly. After realizing just how effective and multi-faceted Chinese Medicine is, I made the decision to move to Asheville for acupuncture school.

When my martial arts teacher suggested I see him for acupuncture treatments for the severe headaches I'd been having for years, I didn't know what to expect. The results were impressive and long lasting - I didn't have another headache for 10 years! I continued to use Chinese Medicine for years to address a variety of health concerns, but it took some time to make the transition from molecular medicine research to becoming a Chinese Medicine practitioner. I'm so glad I did. Mobilizing the body's own healing capacity to support emotional, psychological and physical health throughout the life journey is an enormous honor.

I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2008, I graduated from Pratt Institute and earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Jewelry and Metal Smithing. After college, I continued living in Brooklyn and began a journey of deep personal healing work throughout my twenties. In 2016, I completed a two-year Spiritual Herbalism apprenticeship with master herbalist Karen Rose. This program changed my life, and put me more in touch with myself and the plants around me than I had ever known was possible. After a profound healing experience with an acupuncturist in Brooklyn, I knew this path would be a natural continuation of my herbalism studies.
