After 10 years of working in a variety of positions in the non- profit world, I happily found Traditional Chinese Medicine. I loved many parts of my past community work, but I grew quickly frustrated with the limited resources. I began to explore herbs, massage, meditation, and thinking about what community care and healing justice looks like. These life detours all led me to community acupuncture! In my free time, I like to swim in rivers, sing to my plants, dance it out, drink coconut water in the sun, and hang out with my dog, Francisco. I am in constant awe of the power of Chinese Medicine, and I’m excited to share this medicine with you. Hope to see you in the clinic soon!
