Heather’s own journey with healing through Traditional Chinese Medicine began in her mid-twenties when she was experiencing challenges to the health of her reproductive system. Amazed by the results, she knew she wanted to pursue further studies and once she moved to Central Texas in 2001, she jumped at the chance to study at the Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin.
Heather has over 20 years of experience in the healthcare field both as a Registered Nurse and a Licensed Acupuncturist. In addition to a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Virginia and her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from AOMA, she completed an internship in Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine at Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chengdu, China.
Her extensive background in the Western medical field coupled with her knowledge and experience in traditional healing methods allow Heather to view and treat patients using an integrative approach to their illnesses or conditions. Heather has collaborated successfully with physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, nutritionists, massage therapists, and other practitioners to ensure the best treatment outcomes for her patients.
