I am involved in research in acupuncture and Chinese medicine’s impact on cancer treatment-related side effects and improving quality of life during cancer treatment and survivorship.
Initially, I was drawn to the whole-person orientation of integrative medicine. I chose to specialize in acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine because it is rooted in the philosophy of individualized treatment and wellness plans that can address many health conditions.
Prior to joining Fred Hutch, I practiced at the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic working with patients with complex and chronic conditions. I saw the many positive benefits of acupuncture in the oncology setting, especially how acupuncture treatments can help patients have a better experience through challenging times and difficult medical treatments.
