I enjoy being with patients. Before becoming an acupuncturist, I worked as a counselor and as a swimming teacher and coach. I do acupuncture at Duke Integrative Medicine as part of a phenomenal team. I have teammates close by for consultation when I have questions about my patients. This greatly enhances my ability to provide valuable care. I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) because it is practical and relevant for public health. I also found it essential in restoring my own health and vibrancy. My intention is to offer each patient thoughtful care as well as options for well-being that are sensible, safe and personalized.
