My partner and I graduated from Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. With over 3,000 hours of course work and clinic internship, we acquired a strong background in not only acupuncture, but also herbology, moxibustion, cupping, auricular therapy, scalp acupuncture, and tui na. A series of events brought me to the healing field. While studying Mandarin in California, I began to study the eastern esoteric practices of yoga and qi gong. I had never scoffed at the idea of qi, ki, or prana, but nevertheless, I felt they might just be ideas or concepts. However, after 6 months of intense practice with such energy work, I could no longer chalk it up to imagination. I felt definite changes in my body: emotionally, physically, and spiritually. After completing my schooling in California, I planned to return home to my family in Texas. Unfortunately, I still had not found what I was looking for, educationally or career-wise. As fate would have it, a close friend gave me some parting advice: try acupuncture. I did, and I have not regretted it since.

As a teenager I suffered from chronic debilitating headaches. I saw many doctors and received many prescriptions, but nothing helped. I eventually took matters into my own hands and researched alternatives therapies for headaches. That was how I discovered acupuncture. I felt that it was my calling to help others who suffer from chronic pain. Little did I know then just how many ailments can be helped with Chinese medicine. After graduating from Winthrop University with a BS in Human Nutrition I attended the Texas College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Austin. I completed over 3,000 hours in curriculum including Chinese medical theory, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, western biomedicine, and clinical training. I graduated with a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I am nationally board certified in Oriental Medicine (which includes acupuncture and Chinese herbology) by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I am also a certified NAET practitioner. I no longer suffer from headaches.
