Why did you become an acupuncturist?
The reason I became an acupuncturist is very simple. I wanted to help people. My desire to help was and is not limited to a certain demographic, disability, or cause. That is where acupuncture comes in; it is limitless in its ability to heal and whom it helps. Acupuncture helps everyone. No matter the illness (or lack there of), the injury, the emotion, race, money, or age. Everyone will benefit from acupuncture. Everyone.
What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
I am not just an acupuncturist. I am a mom. I am a wife. I am a dancer. I am a certified Kundalini (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) yoga instructor. I am a southern girl who spent most of her adult life living, loving and learning in New York City and Brooklyn. I am understanding and know the challenges that come with leading a balanced, healthy life. We are all a work in progress and I get that.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
The people. I love being with people and watching them heal and learn about themselves. I am only a small part of a person’s journey. They do all the true work themselves. I am there to support, care, and encourage as the healing process moves forward.
What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
That it does not work. Most people who think this have either never experienced acupuncture or do not understand it.

How do you stay healthy in your own life?
I love to exercise with my family, so my husband and I do a lot of jogging and yoga with our little one. I also dance and eat a balanced diet. I am very particular about what I feed my daughter, so I try to make food choices based on whether it is something I would feed her. I also get weekly acupuncture treatments to stay healthy.
