Shortly after graduating I moved to San Francisco to manage two Belgian restaurants. I wasn’t sure exactly what path I wanted to take and thought this would be a nice little break from schooling and a good experience. After about a year and a half I decided that as much as I enjoyed my time in San Francisco and all the interesting people I interacted with while being a manager I didn’t feel fulfilled.
I then had a lightbulb go off and decided that I would study acupuncture. I was always interested in medical practices of other cultures as well as the folklore. Which both are rolled up into acupuncture very nicely, because each acupuncture point has a medicinal function as well as a story behind it. I moved back east to Maryland and went to to TAI SOPHIA now Maryland University of Integrative Health, one of the first acupuncture schools in the United States. I just completed my Master’s degree in Acupuncture and will be continuing my education in January by getting a degree in Chinese herbal medicine.
Dr. Jordan, Dr. Bates and Dr. Dalton all helped shape who I am today, my time at Longwood and especially all my anthropology classes
