You might expect a wholesome girl from the great state of Wisconsin to have pursued a more conventional career path, but that’s not how things turned out for me. I’m anything but conventional: from flying on a trapeze to climbing human water ski pyramids or performing in the Mermaid Parade, I’ve always followed my adventurous and oftentimes nonconforming instincts.
Patients usually want to know, how did I get into this? The answer is pure luck. Almost 20 years ago, a friend gifted me my first acupuncture treatment. I didn’t have a clue what I was in for, and I wasn’t suffering from any maladies at the time. But it sounded culturally exotic and piqued my curiosity. After that initial treatment and the feeling of uncommon serenity and balance that followed, I was hooked. I had found my calling, passion, and purpose.
Every day, Traditional Chinese Medicine continues to fascinate and inspire me. The time-tested methodologies, philosophies, and insights inform not only what I do in my clinic, but how I embrace life, respond to adversity, parent my daughters, and nourish my body and mind. It’s not a religion, trend, cult, or club. It’s simply a blueprint for a healthier, more peaceful way to live – which we all understandably yearn for amidst the chaos of our modern experience.
