My first exposure to acupuncture was at Breitenbush Hot Springs and the experience blew me away. I was young, living in community, and working on complex renewable energy systems. After deciding to study Chinese Medicine, I moved to Berkeley where I found the love of my life, and a new community of vibrant and inspiring people. I am a life long learner and enjoy diving deep into acupuncture theory, reading fiction, discovering music, and dancing Argentine tango. In my spare time I hunt for hot springs and someday I will find the words for the feelings that come while exploring the expanse of granite in the Sierras and the solitude of alpine lakes at sunset.
