I grew up in Seattle. I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and cannot imagine living anywhere else. I am so grateful for the beautiful, nature landscapes and the rich array of coffee.
I have always been passionate about helping others and those in my community. My father is a physician and the path of medicine was a natural choice for me. I wanted to be able to make an impactful change in a person’s life and gravitated towards helping people attain their best health. I was first introduced to acupuncture when I was 12 years old. I was rear ended and incurred neck and lower back pain. It was only when I tried acupuncture that I received long-term relief, which is when my interest in East Asian medicine was sparked.
I respect all types of medicines and practitioners. I firmly believe in an integrative health care approach, because each branch of medicine has its own limitation, but together they can supplement each other and provide a stronger, holistic treatment. The most important thing to me is my patient's well being.
