I am incredibly honored to continue the legacy of Martha Benedict, O.M.D., L.Ac., through my role as an Education Specialist for Benedictine Healing Products. Passionate about these well rounded topical formulas and power-packed tinctures, I incorporate these into my acupuncture practice, as well as working with local vendors to provide ongoing education.

I worked exclusively in the health care industry for over 15 years after receiving my BA in Psychology from Lewis and Clark College, and then graduated with my Masters in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Five Branches University and received my L.Ac. (License as an Acupuncturist) in California. I had two separate autoimmune complicated personal health crises that led me to my personal path of healing through addressing the body-mind-spirit connection.
