I am a Licensed Acupuncturist at Life in Balance Acupuncture and I have been teaching Tai Chi & Qigong classes since 2009. I believe we are part of a wonderful ecosystem - everything is connected. Providing Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, and Qigong are ways for me to contribute to a peaceful, thriving planet by empowering individuals to be happier and healthier.
My passions are grounded heavily in personal cultivation including: nutrition, exercise, study, qigong, mindfulness, and connecting with nature - none of which stop me from joking around and having fun :) These pursuits bring me joy and help me do a better job of serving others. I originally moved to Corvallis because it felt like a place where I could live my values: grow my own food, get out in the woods as much as possible, and get involved in the sustainability movement, which I thoroughly enjoy.
