Like Nature itself, our equilibrium state is one of balance, harmony, productivity, and diversity.   It is a privilege to partner with clients on their journey towards optimum health and full, vibrant Life.  I cannot think of a more rewarding way to spend my day! 


Education & Experience

Master of Acupuncture (M.Ac.), Traditional Acupuncture Institute, 2000
Diplomate in Acupuncture, National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), 2000-present
Post-graduate training, Shanghai Institute for Traditional Chinese Medicine, July 2004
Fellow, American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM), 2013

My acupuncture practice was established on Capitol Hill in 2001.  For several years, I also worked at the Sign of Jonah Acupuncture Clinic in Columbia Heights, treating people living with HIV/AIDS and/or addictions, and later, under contract to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, researching acupuncture’s effectiveness for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in Iraq War veterans.  Working with our wounded warriors is one of the greatest honors I’ve experienced.

Continuing education (CE) is very important to me, and I regularly take courses to stay abreast of this ancient and evolving field.

My first career was in public drinking water supply.  I worked for many years for public utilities in Southern California, and later, with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) on water supply issues in the Middle East.  In preparation for my water resources career, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Zoology from Drew University in Madison, New Jersey, and a Doctorate in Environmental Science and Engineering from UCLA. My first career was fascinating to me--and I could hardly have imagined that practicing acupuncture would be even more so!


Outside the Office

I grew up in northern New Jersey, and most of my four siblings and thirteen nieces and nephews are there. Since 1993 I have lived on Capitol Hill, and my life is delightfully Hill-centric at the present time! My interests include reading, working out, visiting with family and friends, supporting local sustainable agriculture, and international travel. I am a member of the Capitol Hill Association of Merchants and Professionals (CHAMPS).
