I was raised in New Jersey, the youngest of a large and loving family. I studied Biology at Columbia University and later Ecology at MSU. My first career was in Conservation Biology, focused on the big picture of landscape conservation. After the birth of my kids, something shifted for me. I found myself needing to be more creative, to work with my hands in a positive, tangible way. I went to study Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in Gainesville, Florida. Upon receiving my degree as a Licensed Acupuncturist, I traveled back to Montana where I now specialize in combining Five Element acupuncture and TCM to treat a multitude of conditions that affect the body, mind, and spirit. I provide patients with the support and education they need to not only move toward bodily health, but also to experience a more vibrant life.
