My life's mission is to challenge and guide others to live the life they want through practical lifestyle and nutrition choices as well as having a healthy mindset. I have been mentored and taught from professors and professionals in the healing arts from around the world.In 2014, after ten years of owning and operating Heal Oriental Medicine, a women’s health and fertility clinic in Minneapolis and St. Paul, I went on a sabbatical to California. I invested my time in learning from other ancient healing cultures, as well as from experts in a wide variety of specialties. In spring of 2017, after two years of studying (and also having baby number two) my family of four moved back to Minnesota.Besides immersing myself, my family and my patients on this quest for a happy and healthy life, I enjoy spending time foraging and exploring the vast world with my children, homeschooling, and creating healthy food and medicinal concoctions in my kitchen.I hold my Masters in Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University and am a Licensed Acupuncturist by the Minnesota Medical Board. I am Board Certified with the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). I am a practitioner in Arvigo Technique of Mayan Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT)® and a Level II, Certified Reiki Practitioner.
