My Story

I've worked in advertising, non profit, and finally acupuncture for the last 10 years. I love my profession and and deeply care for people. This medicine helps people utilize their innate healing capabilities. I still marvel at the results of seemingly simple treatments with very complex cases. I have worked with a business partner, in two large group practices, in a hospital, and now my own small practice. Running a small business can be a challenge although I prefer it over larger settings. I think most patients, or at least the ones I attract, appreciate a small, intimate setting in this otherwise frenetic world.

It takes a bold leap of faith to undergo 4 years of training and hope that you can build a business. It's important to have a combination of empathy, book smarts, business acumen and deep commitment to others' well-being. Because there is a considerable amount of patient contact, you also need to be the type of person someone who others will look forward to seeing again. I love the profession and working with people so much I'm prone to burn-out. If that's my biggest gripe, count me a lucky professional!
