Personal Information


Currently Teaching (2017-2018)

I am committed to helping students refine their knowledge and skills in Chinese medicine. From their first term in acupuncture point location to their final preparation for their professional boards, I am dedicated to ensuring my students are well-prepared and on their way to becoming capable practitioners. I stress the importance of accurately identifying the details, but also looking beyond the presenting symptoms to get a picture of the patient’s overall health.

In addition to teaching, I treat patients at the Acupuncture Health Center in Edina. I have a concentration in women’s health and wellness, including, but not limited to, cases of infertility as well as cosmetic acupuncture. I am devoted to lifelong learning and you can often find me reading the latest research or textbook - synthesizing useful information which I impart to both my patients and my students.
