I attended the Northwest School of Botanical Studies where I completed a “Professional (Western) Herbalist Training.”In the years following I attended Five Branches University and received my Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and certification in Five Elements Acupuncture. I then passed the California acupuncture exam and the national exams for Oriental medicine and received certifications as a California licensed acupuncturist (LAc), and a Diplomate of Oriental medicine. After many years of practicing I returned to Five Branches University and completed my doctorate degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine (DAOM), with a specialty in women’s medicine and pain management.
