Why did you become an acupuncturist?
I was exposed to healing arts as a young girl when my mother, a shiatsu practitioner, taught me about meridian theory, and how to massage certain points to feel better. After graduating from Douglass College at Rutgers University, I had a formative experience working with Tibetan refugees in northern India. Seeing first hand how effective regular access to acupuncture could be, I decided to formally study acupuncture and Chinese herbology upon my return to the states.

What distinguishes you from other acupuncturists?
What distinguishes me from all other practitioners is my hands-on experience and training in another country which gave me the opportunity to see how needed the practice of acupuncture is. I have the opportunity to provide community medicine that is affordable and accessible.

What do you enjoy most about your work?
What I enjoy most about my job is being able to witness patients’ healing processes and see them become empowered around their wellness. I truly believe healing comes from within.

What is the biggest misconception you hear about acupuncture?
That the needles are huge! Often people expect a syringe, when actually acupuncture needles are practically hair thin, solid, and quite flexible.

How do you stay healthy in your own life?
Eating well-balanced meals that are in sync with the season, staying active, and receiving regular acupuncture of course!
