About the Author
Born and trained in Canada, I graduated from the University of Toronto School of Medicine in 1990. I completed my internship and residency at the same institution and qualified as a specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1995. My first position as an OB/Gyn was in Guam. There, I met and married my husband, Rob, who was serving in the Navy.
Rob served two tours of duty in San Diego where my interest in Oriental Medicine was ignited while collaborating with Dr. Darcy Yent, naturopath and acupuncturist. In 2009, with Dr. Yent's encouragement, I certified as a Medical Acupuncturist through the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the Helms Medical Institute. I enjoyed incorporating acupuncture into my practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
I have since completed a Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine at the Institute of Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Honolulu. In 2015, I opened my clinic in Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii.
