Masters of Science in Tradition Oriental Medicine, MSTOM
(Pacific College of Oriental Medicine)
Multi-State Licensed Acupuncturist, L.Ac.
(California and Illinois)
My journey into alternative medicine began when I experienced deep personal healing when working with a Peruvian herbalist. This opened my eyes to the power of plants and inspired me to pursue a career in Traditional Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. My stove keeps a pot for cooking herbs on it ever since. I completed undergraduate coursework in aerospace engineering at the prestigious Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which is ranked first in the county in this field. The Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego,Ca is where I received my Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
I hold dual licensure in both Illinois and California. The areas of this medicine that particularly fascinate me and I find I have an affinity for are: psycho-emotional disorders, autoimmune diseases, dermatology, preventative care, and fertility. Working at a veteran's taught me how to care for psychologically shattered individuals and work to reclaim their lost joy.
In addition to Chinese medicine, I have received training and initiations in the lloque, pana, and chunpi paths of the traditional Andean Q'ero medicine. These teaching come from the lineage of Don Melchor Desa, Don Benito Qoriwaman, and Don Andres Espinosa and have been passed down to me by the dedicated author of the book, Masters of the Living Energy, Joan Parisi Wilcox.
