In 1972, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in sociology, with a minor in psychology, from the University of New Orleans. At the end of this period, I decided I was going to study exercise physiology, as I planned on being a professional springboard diving coach. I received my master's in exercise physiology from the University of Southern Mississippi, with an emphasis in cardiac rehabilitation.

My interest in a health profession began while in college, where I was preparing to apply to chiropractic college. It was during this time that I took a course in massage therapy, which led me in the direction of studying massage further. In 1993, I received a massage therapy certification from the Garden State Center for Holistic Health. In 1994, I moved to Asheville, where I worked at the Chinese Acupuncture and Herbology Clinic as an assistant to the practitioners while I built my massage practice. I was truly inspired by the results I saw as an assistant and decided to study Chinese medicine.

I have had two careers, the first in early childhood education. I enjoyed teaching in public elementary schools for ten years, and then received my master’s degree in education and spent some time in the private sector. I was moved to work with a variety of age groups and discovered being a business manager at the Chinese Acupuncture and Herbology Clinic allowed me to connect with people while observing them on their healing journeys.

When I started college, it was with the intent of studying medicine in graduate school. My father and grandfather are at the core of my inspiration to study medicine. They are osteopathic doctors who practiced family practice medicine in rural communities. They also continued the hands-on practice of osteopathic manipulative therapies, which is a method of adjusting the bones of the sacrum, spine, and cranium to provide optimal flow of cerebral spinal fluid to prevent and treat illnesses.

My interest in Chinese medicine was an outgrowth of a lifelong interest in Asian philosophy and culture. I first read Jane English's translation of the Tao Te Ching with my judo class in the eighth grade. In 1993 after completing a bachelor of science degree and a teaching certificate at the University of Colorado, I took a leave of absence from my teaching job and went to acupuncture school. I graduated from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1996. After graduation I traveled to Asia and returned to practice in Boulder, Colorado from 1997–2004.

My interest in Chinese medicine began 20 years ago when I came to the Chinese Acupuncture and Herbology Clinic for treatment. I was experiencing several challenges to my health and I wanted an alternative way of working with my symptoms. I was treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine.

My journey to Chinese medicine began the day I was born, as I was born in the Orient in Osaka, Japan. Since that time I have been drawn to Oriental philosophy. Even though I grew up on many military installations both in the United States and abroad, I have always been fascinated with the poetry of Zen and the discourses of many Eastern teachers. Throughout my life I have sought experiences where I could experience this outlook on life firsthand, whether spending time in a Zen monastery in California, or studying aikido with Yamada Sensei in New York City.
