More About Me:
It was my personal challenges with autoimmune disease that led me to acupuncture. Going to my first acu appointment changed my ideas about what healthcare could be: gentle yet effective, and capable of connecting the dots of my range of symptoms. I knew I wanted to learn and share the natural strength of this medicine.
Along the way, I've come to understand that mental health, trauma, and socioeconomic factors play a huge role in healthcare outcomes. This led me to complete additional training in acupuncture for trauma recovery, acupuncture as an alternative to opioids, and in gender-affirming practices in healthcare settings - and am committed to continuing to learn about accessibility, inclusivity, and community care.
I'm a graduate of the Alberta College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the University of Calgary, and the Nutritional Therapy Association.
