I practice at The Well Clinic in Oakland, and make house calls in the East Bay. In addition, I partner with Integrative Fertility, where I provide on-site pre & post embryo transfer acupuncture with PFC, UCSF, RMA, and Laurel Fertility. Previously, I practiced fertility acupuncture at Blue Ova Health, in San Francisco.

In addition to my work in healthcare, I hold a master's degree in computer science and studied classics as an undergraduate. While working as a software developer for a decade, I discovered my own fertility challenges.
With the help of a reproductive endocrinologist and an acupuncturist, I welcomed twins into the world in 2005. That experience marked a career change and sparked a deep interest and passionate study of Chinese medicine.
