A little about Anne (pronounced "Annie"):
“My transformative experience on the path to becoming an Acupuncturist occurs, maybe unsurprisingly, near the origins of Acupuncture itself…Upon graduating from UW-Eau Claire with a Kinesiology degree, I knew that I wanted to travel the world. And it wasn’t long after accepting my diploma that I was on an airplane to Gwangju, South Korea, off and away to teach English to Korean children. I learned many amazing things from Korean culture. It was there, in fact, in the Land of the Morning Calm, where I first engaged with the healing powers of acupuncture. While long-distance running, I suffered an acute leg injury. I made an appointment with an acupuncturist in my little Korean neighborhood. Leg injuries can be dogged, but after a session of needles, cupping, and plum blossom, I was back to the trails. My pain was gone, and in its place, there was a new found love for Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through the course of my remaining stay in South Korea, I become engrossed in healing my body as a whole with foods, herbal remedies, and acupuncture. By the time I returned to American soil, I was determined to find a place where I could continue to learn more about treating the body as an entire system and not just disjointed pieces. Every morning, I wake up excited to do the job I love—sharing, treating, and healing—at an amazing clinic with wonderful patients.”
