About Me

I have been working in various medical settings (as an LPN in my native Germany) since 1995.

My professional life in the United States began over 7 years ago, when I began working as a Registered Dental Hygienist in Tampa. Throughout my careers, I have always strived to continue learning and perfecting my professional skill-sets.

During my intensive studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture during the past 4 years, I put myself through school, working as a permanent make-up artist, owning my own successful business.

A little over 4 years ago, I decided to follow my true passion for health and wellness and took upon myself a major career change, to become a Doctor of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. (graduated Dec. 2016, East West College of Natural Medicine).

I am in the process of finishing up my Florida State licensure as a fully accredited Acupuncture Physician, having completed my NCCAOM Board Exams in Biomedicine (completed), Foundations of Oriental Medicine (completed), Acupuncture w/Point Location (completed), with only Chinese Herbology (pending) remaining.

During my extensive, hands-on clinical externship experience, I have acquired and honed the essential and critical skills needed for competent patient care, treating patients in the various TCM modalities. (e.g. Intake/Diagnostics, Needling, Herbal Medicinals, Moxibustion, Cupping and Treatment Planning, Injection Therapy, etc.)

While attending school full-time for the past 3.5 years, I have created a solid reputation locally for setting the bar high for various types of common permanent makeup procedures and various forms of skin micro-needling, for purposes of skin rejuvenation. I enjoy an outstanding reputation as Master Artist, providing some of the best Semi-Permanent Cosmetics in the greater Tampa Bay area.

For my professional future, I am considering sharing my knowledge in some capacity, as well as running my own TCM/Acupuncture Clinic. Currently, I wish to focus my practice on areas of:

  • pain management,
  • rejuvenation,
  • infertility, and
  • nutrition.
  • I will also incorporate aspects of functional medicine into my practice.

 

Aside from my medical training, I am also an energy worker combining many modalities of Reiki (Usui, Karuna, Angelic Reiki and Kundalini). I use a combination of aids, including Crystals, Touch Healing, Sound Healing, and many other techniques that involve chakra balancing and healing on body, mind and spirit levels. I am a certified Reiki Master/Teacher direct from the traditional Usui line.  I am a registered teacher and practitioner of the International Association of Reiki Professionals. I enjoy working with clients in workshops and private settings.
