In the year 2000, she became interested in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Due to injuries sustained from a car accident in 1995, shoulder surgery in 2004 and trauma from being a lifelong equestrian, she was constantly working with specialists on pain management. While working in her restaurant in Saratoga Springs, New York, she met an Acupuncture Physician by the name of Deborah Kozlowski of A New Leaf Traditional Chinese Medicine. Not long after beginning treatment, she was amazed by the results of this medicine, which was unlike any other she had encountered. For the first time, there were no side effects from drugs, no painful therapies, no increase in pain levels after treatment and no high priced medical bills. Instead, through Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, she had decreased pain for longer periods of time, no longer needed western drugs and the side effects disappeared. As added benefits, she noticed less stress and more peaceful sleep. This “new medicine” had her completely intrigued and impressed.
After selling her restaurant, she started training for her medical license in Traditional Chinese Medicine. During her time in medical school, she also started her career in aesthetics. With the benefits of both licenses, she has been able to learn a wide array of skin treatments. She Utilizes Chinese medicine to correct some skin issues from the inside and aesthetics to correct other issues from the outside. Anti-aging and skin correcting treatments have become one of her specialties.
