About Me

I grew up and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Boulder. After graduation, I lived in Crested Butte, Oregon, and Alaska; taught English in Japan, and travelled extensively in Asia. When I decided to finally choose a profession, I attended one of the top Acupuncture colleges in the Western Hemisphere in Santa Cruz, California. I elected to do additional study in China, where I was able to observe hospital-based Traditional Chinese Medicine in Cardiology, Nephrology, Gastroenterology, OB/GYN, and Primary Care. 


From 2003-2017 I had a fulfilling private practice in Boulder. In addition to that, I created an acupuncture program for Boulder’s homeless and working poor. I then converted the program to an externship program for Southwest Acupuncture college, where I was an Associate Professor.


In partnership with the University of Colorado Athletic Department, I supervised the acupuncture treatment of hundreds of student athletes at the University of Colorado. I have performed acupuncture on athletes ranging from 98 pound runners to 225+ pound Linemen; on Olympians, NFL players, and professional basketball players. I have taught classes on Acupuncture Orthopedics and Sports Medicine locally and nationally. 

 

About My Practice

I am thrilled to have joined Kaiser Permanente and love the integrated approach to care. The melding of the precision and instrumentation of Western Medicine with the subtle but powerful intervention of Complementary Medicine in many cases serves the needs of the patient best.


How I thrive

I love being outside in the mountains in my free time.  I cross country and telemark ski in the winter, and still backpack in the summer.  I have a bit of crazy cat lady in me, and love spending time with them too.
