Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
— Confucius

I graduated from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, California at the top of my class, receiving a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine.  I am California and National Board-Certified as a  Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist. I also have my Ph.D in Chinese Medicine from ACTCM in San Francisco. In addition to my postgraduate work, I hold a Bachlors of Science in Cell and Developmental Biology, and a Bachlors of Art in History from UCSB. I also taught college level anatomy and physiology and have an Associates degree from SRJC.

My areas of specialization include internal medicine, digestive disease, nutritional care, orthopedic and pain management, as well as women's health and fertility. Further, I have focused much of my studies on nutrition and exercise development.

I am committed to the development of a caring, innovative, and successful practice where my patients feel relaxed and nourished. I wish to serve the community and the Oriental Medicine profession by treating illness and promoting health and wellness. I work to enhance and maintain your health with a high level of ethics utilizing a broad depth of knowledge, diversity of skills, and quality of care. My goal is to provide the best possible care to each and every patient. I believes I am  uniquely suited to treat others, because I myself have benefited from the therapeutic qualities of Chinese Medicine.

When I am not in the office, I enjoys activities such as jogging, climbing, hiking with my dog, painting, and creating art.
