About the Practitioner
Our goal is to help you achieve a healthier, better you!
After completing an Associate’s degree in Massage Therapy at Columbus State I became licensed and have nine years’ experience as a Board certified Massage Therapist. I continued my education and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Language Arts from The Ohio State University. After graduation I continued working as a therapist for a chiropractor’s office. An opportunity arose for me to work for a local wellness and acupuncture office in advertising and communications. As I worked with the master practitioner I became very interested in the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine which includes acupuncture and Chinese herbs. This experience helped me to continue my true passion which is working to educate and help people optimize their health and wellness goals. I began my studies at the American Institute of Alternative Medicine (AIAM) and graduated in January 2016 with a Master’s degree in Acupuncture (MA). I accomplished my certification through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and licensed through the Ohio State Medical Board.
My studies at AIAM has prepared me to competently make:
- Appropriate diagnosis and treatment plans according to the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine
- Administer various acupuncture, moxibustion and other healing modalities from the oriental medicine treatment process
- Have a working knowledge of Bio-Medical Science as it is related to Acupuncture diagnosis and treatment
After graduation I had the opportunity to study abroad in China and Japan to advance my Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine clinical skills. The studies specialized in pain management, muscular disorders, gastroenterology, and endocrinology.
I plan to continue my focus on helping individuals find natural alternative options for pain management and treatment of common illness. Our purpose at the Panda Acupuncture Clinic is to provide high quality yet affordable alternative options to help educate patients on safe and effective holistic treatment plans that embrace and promote wellness.
