My gateway to healing began with traditional Western Medicine.  In 2003, I graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine.  I completed residency in Family Medicine at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital in 2006.  During the next two years I expanded my family and practiced Family Medicine through two volunteer clinics in the Indianapolis area.  In 2008, I began practicing in a concierge medical practice.  

Through an emotional awakening in my own life, I became aware of the deep connections between the mind and body.  I began to explore these connections with my patients, which opened a new direction for healing.   It was also during this time that my family moved from the midwest to the east coast.  My professional journey began with the Center for Mind-Body Medicine.  I started teaching Mind-Body Skills groups in 2008 and became a Certified Practitioner of Mind-Body Medicine in 2011.  

To explore deeper healing to the level of spirit, I began training in Tao of Medical Qigong with completion of certification in 2010.  When I experienced the concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine through the Tao of Medical Qigong, I felt drawn to pursue acupuncture training to bring this invaluable healing art to my patients.  I completed medical acupuncture training in 2009.  In April 2011, I became a certified Dragon’s Way Qigong Instructor.  In 2013, I completed a year long apprenticeship with Nan Lu, OMD of the Tao of Healing in New York City a Master of Taoist Chinese Medicine.  2013 also brought my family full circle with a return to the heartland, Indiana.

My view of Western and Eastern Medicine is like the symbol of the Yin/Yang.  They in some ways are opposites; however, they contain elements of each other, balance, and support each other.  This reflects my holistic approach to your health and healing.
