Dear friends,

I am so excited to be able to offer a very individualized, holistic approach to veterinary medicine.  From my first acupuncture class in the fall of 2012, I knew it was an invaluable approach to healing. It rebalances our pets to give them ideal health and quality of life.

When my son had a severe reaction to penicillin several years ago, I became interested in a more holistic approach to medicine. Since 2009, my family has focused on alternative methods of healing ailments and on cultivating strong immune systems. I wanted very much to do this for my veterinary patients! The opportunity came when the Chi Institute brought a day-long acupuncture seminar to Baltimore. That day changed my professional life and how I think about veterinary medicine.

I am amazed on a daily basis how well our pets respond to acupuncture and other natural modalities.  The more I learn, the more excited I get about what the future could hold for my patients. I look forward to sharing the principles of integrative/holistic veterinary medicine with you as we work together to give our special dogs and cats the balanced, ideal lives they deserve.
