More About Me

I created The Contemporary Herbalist because, like you, I wanted simple, high quality, transparent, and trusted skin care and self-care products and information.

My promise to you and to our community is that our plant-derived products and blends are 100% clean, pure, and lovingly created to make wellness and self-care less complicated, more transparent, empowering, and fun.

The Contemporary Herbalist is a wellness brand committed to empowering people to live healthier, happier, and more conscious lives.

I have been a practicing herbalist and acupuncturist for more than 25 years. During that time I have worked with, and coached thousands of people to improve their health, wellbeing, and lifestyles. Drawing on the ancient traditional Asian theories of balance and wellness within the body, mind, and spirit, I have continually incorporated contemporary modalities into my practice.

I received my education at the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and have been in clinical practice in Colorado and Hawaii since 1993, providing Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, and dietary and lifestyle counseling in both the private practice and teaching clinic setting. I completed two clinical internships in China, both with an emphasis on Chinese herbal medicine and received my clinical doctorate in acupuncture and oriental medicine (DAOM) from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2014. I have been teaching acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in Colorado and Hawaii since 1995. Courses I specializes in are TCM Diagnosis and Differentiation, TCM Internal Medicine, Chinese herbal materia medica and formulas, TCM Gynecology and advanced clinical supervision.

I am passionate about sharing my wisdom, extensive clinical experience, and herbal medicine knowledge, to support those on the lifelong journey of balance, wellbeing, and health. I am available at my clinic in Denver and for consultations by phone. Click here to book an appointment, or email me at
