I have always been labeled the weird one in my loving family. But, I prefer the term special instead, because aren't we all special in our own way? :)
Growing up in rural East Texas, fed my appetite for the wonders of nature. I vividly remember thinking, "God, in all of His infinite wisdom, has to have given us ways to heal naturally." Thus my passion for learning about herbs, vitamins, food as medicine and how the environment affects us, began.
After attending SFASU for 6 years, earning 2 degrees and ending an exceptional Track & Field (strong emphasis on Field) athletic career, I sought a profession that truly embodied true health and healing. Add to that years of suffering with my own personal health issues like oh-so-attractive acne, severe heartburn, painful periods & more, and being told to take medications perpetually, I knew there had to be a better way.
Upon researching Naturopathic Medicine and seeing that its philosophy and therapies resonated with me completely, I was in love! I immediately applied and thankfully was accepted into 1 of only 7 accredited naturopathic medical schools in North America, at that time.
Bye bye Pinewoods of East Texas and hello Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM), in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona.
I loved the naturopathic medical training that I received at SCNM! First of all, I learned how the human body works, along with how to restore normal function... 2 tenets that are of great importance for me to HELP you! Secondly, it introduced me to the ancient health system of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which includes acupuncture, cupping, nutrition and more. Thus, leading me to further my education by earning a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) at AOMA Integrative Graduate School of Medicine, and completing additional training in China.
I have undergone a lot of training and continue to do so, because I want to offer YOU the best, most effective, natural options that promote health and healing.
If you are ready and willing, I look forward to partnering with you to become the best YOU: mentally, emotionally and physically.
