     I graduated from Amherst College with a B.A. in Asian Languages and Civilizations before completing the Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine and the Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine degrees at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. In 2013 I received the Golden Flower Award for excellence in herbal medicine. I am board certified by state and national standards, and I continue to hone my skills by studying with international masters such as Shoji Kobayashi, Suzanne Robidoux, and Ann Tam.
