Since I was very young, I’ve had a strong connection with animals and knew that my calling was veterinary medicine. I have always been drawn to holistic healing methods and during middle school I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) through my beloved horse’s battle with cancer. I found a wonderful mentor and briefly began my studies in TCVM in high school. After graduating veterinary school and working for several years, I found that I wanted to be offer my patients the benefits of TCVM and other holistic healing methods in addition to the best Western medical care I could offer, and resumed my studies of TCVM, receiving my acupuncture certification in 2013.
Each patient and situation are unique, and I believe the best outcomes come by taking advantage of the strengths of both TCVM and Western medicine together, in an integrative approach to restoring health and maintaining wellness for our four-legged friends. TCVM works wonderfully as an adjunct therapy to traditional treatment for a variety of endocrine diseases, cancers, musculoskeletal conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, dermatological issues, auto-immune and inflammatory conditions, and many others. By working with your Western veterinarian, my goal is to help my patients heal as quickly as possible and maintain that health.
I currently offer acupuncture and am working towards my herbal therapy certification. During your appointment we’ll discuss both TCVM and Western approaches, and find a comprehensive approach together. I look forward to meeting you and your pet!
