I grew up in Seattle.  I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and cannot imagine living anywhere else. I'm 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. I wanted to be able to make an impactful change in a person’s life and gravitated towards helping people attain their best health.  The most important thing to me is my patient's well being.

In addition to my private practice, I am a Clinical Research Acupuncturist with the the Greenlee Studies Team at Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance's Integrative Medicine Program. My integrative oncology research explores the use of acupuncture to alleviate cancer treatment-related side effects and promote overall well-being.
