Education and Training

I am certified nationally by NCCAOM and in New Mexico as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. (Michigan certification in the works!). I earned a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine from the Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I began studying Ayurveda informally in 2002 when I was healing from my own life long digestive issues. From 2008-2010, I began my formal education of Ayurveda at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In 2009, I traveled to Pune, India to continue my clinical studies in Ayurveda under the expertise of Dr. Vasant Lad. In addition, I am grateful for my training with hormone balance expert Dr. Claudia Welch. I also hold a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. 

I am truly dedicated to helping women navigate through the many hormonal transitions we experience each month and over the course of a lifetime, whether that be menstrual issues and PMS, pregnancy--including pre-conception and post-partum care--enhancing fertility in both male and female partners, menopause and pediatric care.
