"Having been a musician and athlete for most of my life, I know about the intimate connection between body, mind and spirit. Maintaining that free-flowing connection, is the foundation of Eastern medicinal practices that I have dedicated my life to bringing to patients from varying communities and in collaboration with the Western medical world. Committing to walking the path towards well-being with each patient is an energetic exchange and partnership that I value greatly. It is with honor and duty, that I continue to be of service, utilizing acupuncture and acupressure medicine to empower each individual on their “path of zen” as they awaken to their own innate ability to heal themselves."
I graduated from Mt. St. Mary’s University in 2003, earned my Masters in Acupuncture from the Tai Sophia Institute in 2011 and my Doctorate in Acupuncture from MUIH in 2019. From 2011-2013, I became certified as a NADA Detoxification Specialist, received training in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, and completed my Reiki Master and Integrative Reflexology Certifications from the Holistic Massage Therapy Institute. Since 2016, I have served as the Main Acupuncturist, Clinic Manager and Supervisor of Acupuncture/AOM Internships at the Kaufman Cancer Center at UM Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, MD., as an MUIH faculty member and contracted practitioner, where ATA has been recognized as an approved modality. In 2019, I began training in Jin Shin Jyutsu. I was accepted to attend an Observership at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and completed their Oncology Acupuncture Certification. I was asked to present at the Susan B. Komen Metastatic Breast Cancer Symposium at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. In 2020, I had compositions published in “Acupuncture Today” and the "Journal of the American Society of Acupuncturists". To support colleagues and patients during the pandemic, I developed ATA courses that have been recognized by the NCCAOM and NCBTMB.
