With a commitment to helping others actualize their full potential and wellbeing, I have been a licensed acupuncturist and practitioner of integrative medicine since 1999. My private practice has focused on the use of East Asian Medicine, nutrition and aromatherapy in the treatment of fertility, anti-aging/rejuvenation, sports therapy, and over-all well-being. For several years I worked with the San Diego Fertility Center offering pre and post Assisted Reproductive Therapy (ART) treatments and in 2013 I was invited to join the Mind Body Medical Group at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California, as a specialist offering acupuncture.
In addition to my private practice, I share my passion for natural medicine as a professor, and clinical supervisor, at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California. Classes I have taught include: Master’s Program classes – Acupuncture and Channels 1, 2 and 4, Western Nutrition, Medical Report Writing, Intro to Clinical Observation, Intro to Associate Internship, Associate Intern Diagnosis and Evaluation, Oriental Medicine 7/DTD4 (Gynecology and Obstetrics); Doctoral Program classes – Practice Based Learning.
My formal education includes a BA in Business, a Master’s Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, with my research and clinical trial focused on combining aromatherapy with acupuncture. In 2010 I founded Gem Elixirz TM a company offering unique aromatherapy products that combine the power of aromatherapy and gemstones for the purpose of transformative healing and well-being.
As an approved Continuing Education Provider for acupuncturists, I hold various workshops on subjects such as: Incorporating Aromatherapy into your Practice & Life, Ageless – Ancient and Modern Day Secrets to Longevity & Facial Rejuvenation, The Art of Practice and The Business of Acupuncture. In addition, I am a guest speaker and lecturer at The Chopra Center, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, Palomar Hospital and other community venues. I'd love to speak at your venue just contact me.
A native to Southern California, I love surfing, running, biking, snowboarding/skiing, SCUBA, triathlons (IRONMAN finisher Arizona - 2008), yoga, meditation and traveling abroad. I am also a certified group fitness instructor specializing in indoor cycling classes.
