Associate Clinic Faculty

Special Interests

  • Chinese and Western herbs
  • Nutritional supplements

I operate a private practice in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis and supervise acupuncture interns at the University's teaching clinics. I have also worked as a practitioner of Oriental medicine at Fairview University Medical Center’s Mind Body Spirit Clinic and have served on the board of directors for the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Association of Minnesota. I've been licensed since 1999.

For several years I mentored with a third generation native Vietnamese practitioner of classical Oriental medicine. Though I am primarily an acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, my knowledge of Western herbs and nutritional supplements assists me in guiding my patients. I developed this knowledge working in the natural health care retail industry. 

I enjoy working with a wide array of health conditions and am particularly interested in how the emotions and spirit influence physical health. I enjoy helping people find their path to wellness through encouraging peace and joy.
