Susan received her Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University. She has over 20 years experience as a RN, most of that time being in Critical Care. She spent about 5 years as a travel nurse, traveling throughout the country. She became interested in acupuncture while on a travel assignment in Seattle. However, she always had an interest in Alternative medicine. She grew up learning to use household remedies to help with different ailments. She believes that acupuncture and Chinese medicine encompass the whole person and can give a person a better quality of life. “It’s nice to treat someone and not have to use drugs that can potentially alter their mental state and their ability to function.” She also supports blending Western and Eastern philosophies.
