I then found myself getting my Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR. After graduating I traveled abroad to Tanzania for an acupuncture externship in a government run hospital treating a variety of conditions from back pain, to post-stroke sequelae, to over-active sweating to name a few. I then came back to the US and within a year began my private practice in Central Oregon. Wanting to be closer to family and where I grew up, I returned to Madison in 2016 and began my practice here.
All of these experiences have come together to encourage me to reach out to those who also have found themselves struggling, physically mentally and emotionally with their current circumstances and offer the same support that was offered to me.
I find I am happiest when I can have new experiences whether it be with friends, family, food, or traveling. When I’m not in the clinic, I’m usually out on a hike, bike ride, at a watering hole, climbing or just relaxing in a sunny spot with my dog Izzie.
