After moving to Canada, she received her pharmacy license in BC and worked as a pharmacist for 10 years. While working as a pharmacist, she really enjoyed helping her patients through symptom-based approaches of treatment, but she also had a passion for holistic healing methods.

Thus, she decided to change her path and pursue acupuncture. When treating her patients, she uses various modalities including acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, motor point acupuncture, scalp acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, cupping, Gua sha, and acupressure. She also does facial acupuncture and facial cupping and Gua sha for facial rejuvenation.
