WHY ARE YOU AN ACUPUNCTURIST?
“It was at my mom’s constant suggestions and the urging of my family doctor who was a D.O. that I get into healthcare. My mom suffered from migraines when I was a teen and tried everything the doctors suggested, prescribed, etc. to no avail. So when she was suffering at home I would rub her neck and shoulders because that is what she would do for me when I was sore from sports. She would swear was the only thing that gave her relief and as I got closer to graduating from college she would often suggest I consider massage therapy as a career path. A year after being in Breckenridge I was searching for what to do with myself and decided to try massage therapy since my mom was so persistent. And from there my eyes were opened to how incredibly intelligent the body is and how it really can heal itself if we support it. Something clicked, I loved learning all about the body and how intricate it is and yet how connected everything is. Fast forward a few years and I started to receive acupuncture for my own migraines which helped tremendously and I was intrigued and curious so I decided to get my masters in Asian medicine. In my studies I learned about a teacher, Matt Callison, out of San Diego that was combining western sports medicine with Chinese medicine which was right up my alley having done orthopedic & sports massage for so long. I have been studying and teaching with him ever since.”
