I am deeply interested in the mind-body connection, as well as how the body's natural energy affects overall health. I first explored this connection as an undergraduate at U.C. Santa Cruz, majoring in Neuroscience. I then earned my Masters of Science degree in Chinese Medicine from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM), here in San Francisco. In addition to clinical experience at ACTCM's Community and Auricular Clinic, I have worked at Jewish Home for the Aged, California Pacific Medical Center (post-acute rehabilitation). Since 2007 I have worked at Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic, providing Chinese Medicine to low income women with advanced cancer. Within the hospitals and community clinics in Hangzhou, China at the Zhejiang Chinese Medical University I further advanced my training with a focus on orthopedics and neurological disorders.
