I am committed to creating a healthier, happier world to live in by changing one life at a time. My practice is based on the following core values:
I am particularly interested in (but not limited to) helping…
I studied medicine at Georgetown University in Washington DC and trained in Family Practice at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, CA. I completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center in the underserved area of Lawrence, MA and am board certified in Family Medicine as well as in Integrative Holistic Medicine. I have also completed a Healing Touch Level 1 course, trained in medical acupuncture with the Helms Institute of Medical Acupuncture, and am a certified corrective exercise specialist by the National Association of Sports Medicine.
I’ve worked in various environments including community and private hospitals and clinics, Indian health reservations, and in New Zealand as a General Practitioner. I’ve also participated in medical missions to Nicaragua and Haiti. In addition to work and travel, I have competed internationally in taiji and started several free community classes in California, Massachusetts, and New Zealand which have continued on without my presence. My passion is helping others see the physical-emotional-mental-spiritual connections in health and life. I strive to inspire people to be who they are by empowering them through experience.
Most recently, I received my health coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.

I love being outdoors and in nature. As a result, I try to get outside at every opportunity I can. I believe it’s important to feel connected with the earth we come from and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. Breathing in the sun fills me with warmth, love, and happiness. I would love to share this experience with you.
