“My first exposure to this medicine occurred when I was growing up and saw my mom go through the years of unnecessary medications that left her in a state of mental fog, emotional stagnation and extreme fatigue. She found an Acupuncturist who put her on a liver cleanse along with Acupuncture treatments and was able to get her off of all of her medications. Long story short, I got my mom back and she continues to be one of the inspirations of my life! This had a huge impact on me and I fell in love with this amazing medicine!
My interests involve any rigorous outdoors activities; hiking, backpacking, camping, skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, cycling, swimming. I love Mexican, Italian food and enjoy cooking at home with fresh organic ingredients. My family is extraordinarily important to me and I consider some of my closest friends as family!”
