Greetings from Panacea, my sailboat that carried me to Orcas Island last November. I arrived here with a mission! After years of constant study, I finally got to leave the city, Masters in Acupuncture in hand, to share my love of Chinese medicine through my business, Heal~Flow Acupuncture.

My vision is to broaden the scope of acupuncture beyond the office and into the daily lives of people and communities. My mission is to make Chinese Medicine accessible by offering sliding scale pricing and mobile services. I feel blessed and honored to call these islands my new home and to offer my skills and my heart to this community.
