To find our calling is to find the intersection between our own deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger. -- Frederick Buechner
Before becoming an acupuncturist I was blessed with two amazing careers of service. I proudly served 12 years in the United States Air Force and, following an honorable discharge, transitioned to a career as a customer advocate in the Executive Branch of the US government. I enjoyed many aspects of those careers, earning a wealth of experience, and it soon became clear to me that there was more.
After a profound spiritual awakening I enrolled at Tai Sophia Institutute, now Maryland Universtity of Integrative Health (MUIH), and earned a Masters degree of Acupuncture (M.Ac). I spent thousands of academic and clinic hours learning and embodying the intricacies of acupuncture and chinese medicine through first-rate instruction and extensive internship. I'm licensed to practice acupuncture by the State of Maryland, an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist (ADS) from the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA), and a member of the Maryland Acupuncture Society.
Out of gratitude for my fellow veterans, I lead a volunteer program offering free auricular acupuncture treatments to members of the Maryland National Guard. For more information about that program, click here.
I believe being an acupuncturist is my life calling; it is why I am on this earth. My years of training and my own transformation prompt me to live a bigger and more meaningful life. Today, I know the possibilities are endless and with continual exploration the next chapter unfolds.
I'm eternally grateful for the entire journey that has brought me to this moment and I look forward to walking with you as you discover your full potential.
