A little about me...
I am often asked by patients "what made you want to become an acupuncturist?" I love the idea of seeing the body as a whole and looking to treat the root of the problem, as well as the symptoms. This is a beautiful, complimentary medicine that can help people heal. By working closely with MD's, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists I believe a team approach can help anyone achieve their health goals regardless of how much they may be struggling.
My whole life has been centered around the concept of living a healthy life. From a young age I was a competitive gymnast who learned very quickly that health is achieved by becoming fit, a healthy diet, work life balance and most importantly a mind-body-spirit connection.
I am a born and raised Calgarian who after studying psychology for 4 years, decided to go back to school for Traditional Chinese Medicine. After completing my doctorate in Traditional Chinese Medicine I decided to take my education one step further by completing my Sports Medicine Acupuncture (C.SMA) certification. So off to California I went, to train with one of the top sports medicine acupuncturists in the world! Since then, I have been fortunate enough to treat athletes from all over the world. This experience has been unreal!
