Spending time in the great outdoors, laughing with good friends and family, traveling and exploring, livin’ and lovin’.
What made you decide to become an Acupuncturist and DTCM?
Witnessing first hand my mom’s experience and struggle with breast cancer sparked in me the desire to be of service to those around me. Life is full of activity, work and daily stresses and I understand the value in maintaining good health and well being, preventing disease and treating illness and injury so that we may all be our best for ourselves, our families and our community. I love helping people to feel good and am honoured to assist them in their healing.
