Professional Narrative

East Asian medicine has been part of my life since I was around 8 years old when I received my first treatment. My interest in herbal medicine also started at a young age, when I would curiously look at all the herbs stored in glass jars at my grandparent’s health food store. This passion followed into my undergraduate studies where I studied cultural anthropology, and spent time in China, Niger, and Fiji, studying history, folklore and about medical practices, and medicinal plants. This would eventually lead me to pursing a degree at the Tai Sophia Institute.

Upon graduating I was eager to learn about all that this medicine has to offer and dive into the roots of the medicine. Studying with Jeffrey Yuen, Dr. Richard Tan (may he rest in peace), Lonny Jarrett, Heiner Fruehuaf and Damo Mitchell. I have worked closely with Z'ev Rosenberg one of the first generation of practitioners of Chinese medicine in the US as his editor and contributor to his books "Returning to the Source: Han Dynasty Medical Classics in Modern Clinical Practice", "Ripples in the Flow: Reflections on Vessel Dynamics in the Nàn Jīng 難經" and his upcoming book "Afterglow: Ministerial Fire and Chinese Ecological Medicine".
