“My first exposure to Eastern medicine occurred when I was growing up and witnessed my mom go through years of symptom focused medications that left her in a state of untreatable mental fog, suicidal depression and extreme fatigue. She met an Acupuncturist who determined that her organs were toxic and multiple systems were injured. After four short months of treatment with emotional work, detox, Acupuncture, nutrition and Chinese Herbs she was able to eliminate all her medications. Long story short, I got my mom back and to this day she is one of the most positive, inspirational people in my life! Her process had a huge impact on me and as a result I fell in love with this amazing medicine!
My interests involve any rigorous outdoors activities; backpacking, camping, skiing, rock climbing, cycling. I’m a nerd about eating healthy and cooking with fresh organic ingredients. My family is extraordinarily important to me and I consider some of my closest friends as family!”
