She is a member of both the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine AAAOM and the Oregon Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine OAAOM.

A. from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, and trained in massage therapy at the East West College of Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. While attending acupuncture school, she practiced as a Licensed Massage Therapist with a focus on chronic pain relief. Her adept palpation skills and sensitivity to the bodymind inform both her practice and instruction of Oriental Medicine.
