I became acquainted with Acupuncture and Chinese medicine during a particularly stressful period. While initially seeking treatment for tennis elbow, I soon realized that many other aspects of my life were aligning physically and emotionally, and the lightbulb went on. This is what I'm supposed to do.
how I work
What’s your superpower?
I have always been drawn to reproductive health. Through my studies and work in the birth and postpartum doula world and having a daughter of my own, I became even more impassioned to help people achieve their maximum fertility potential and help navigate the perinatal period. The fourth trimester is a real thing!
who I am
What was before Six Fishes?
Before Six Fishes, I had my own practice in Chicago and worked in Theatre and Advertising for a decade. The Pandemic crystallized my desire to be near my family, and life brought my family back east to where I grew up.
