My story

I have always known that I wanted to help people and work in healthcare, I just didn't know how exactly. Just before I graduated college a family member sought out holistic medicine to help alleviate severe allergy symptoms. This opened my eyes to a whole new world of medicine and down the rabbit hole I went.

Traditional Chinese Medicine immediately clicked with me. It is a safe, effective and radical form of holistic healing. It's ability to treat such a wide variety of disorders will never cease to amaze me. I have always known that there is more to getting better than just taking medication. After graduating from Pacific College and working for a few years in Chicago, I knew that I had developed the skills and the passion and I was excited and ready to bring my favorite healing  modalities back to my home state.​ I am so happy to be rooted here in northern Michigan with so much natural beauty and such an incredible and supportive community.

To be able to help people find relief by using teeny tiny needles as a self healing mechanism is  I am grateful to practice this medicine every day. I am honored to be a part of each and every patients health journey. I do not take it lightly that each individual trusts me to be a part of their care team. You've go to take your health into your own hands, find a team that works with you, and supports you to make you feel your best. I look forward to seeing you on the treatment table.
