The Way We Care

Finding answers about your health and fertility can feel like a rollercoaster ride that never stops. We are here to change that with care geared towards your unique, whole self.

We are partners in healing

We work with you to learn as much as we can about you, which is a welcome departure from what you go through in traditional Western medicine practices. Here, you will experience a warm, welcoming environment, where we support you through your frustrations and celebrate your successes – without judgment.

We’re Team Inner Peace.

We love what we do, and want you to love the experience of working with us.
When you’re here, you are part of our team. Together, we help to make your health
and wellness more understandable, manageable, and better than it’s ever been.

Healing is our passion and the thread that runs through everything we do, on the
clock or off. You’ll find that we’re well-rounded, down-to-earth, a bit goofy, and over-
joyed to be part of your life, even if it’s just for a short while.

Inner Peace Acupuncture exists because I once was in your shoes.

I know what it feels like when you’re confused, overwhelmed with advice and information, and scared that you won’t get to experience motherhood. That’s why I made the decision to dedicate my whole career to fertility.

It makes me happy knowing that every day, I help to create life and to make someone’s dream of parenthood come true.

The decision to study Chinese medicine and acupuncture was a return to my roots: I was born in China, and my mother was a Chinese medicine doctor. (She now practices in Charlotte and helps out around the office.) Her work exposed me to medicine from an early age. I remember drinking—shall we say “strong-smelling” herbs whenever I got sick, and despite the lousy smell, they always worked.

With a doctor in the family, I hadn’t considered a career in Chinese medicine until I had to turn to acupuncture and herbology as an adult when I had trouble with my own health. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and I didn’t want to take birth control pills because that was a Band-Aid and not a solution. I also didn’t understand much about the condition because my doctor at the time said “Can’t do anything about it, just ride it out.” Despite the struggles, Chinese medicine worked for me!

After that experience, I knew I’d found my mission to help others, especially women. I knew that I wanted to help them work through their challenges and to achieve their goals with less stress, anxiety, and heartache.

This brings me to you.

To help you get to know me better, here are five fun facts about me:

  • I’m a Stitch Fix addict! My box of “Fix” arrives monthly and I usually keep everything!
  • I’ll never say no to a glass of Pinot Noir.
  • The first thing I do when I wake up is to check my phone for texts, emails, and Instagram notifications. But doesn’t everyone do this? ????
  • I’m obsessed with Downton Abbey. I’ve watched every episode three times. And I own four books about the British Edwardian era.
  • When I was five, I got my head stuck in a cage at a zoo where brown bears were kept. (We’ll talk about this one in person if we ever get the chance.)

I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to work with you. I know that together we’ll get there by jumping over hurdles one by one. I don’t believe in infertility. I believe that all women are essentially fertile and that you ultimately have the power to take action, take charge, and become pregnant.

I feel blessed to have a job where I can help women achieve their goals of motherhood.

There is nothing more heart-warming and rewarding than to hear a woman say, “I’m pregnant!” after years of trying to conceive.

I didn’t always believe in Chinese Medicine. My great-grandfather was a Chinese herbalist who exported Chinese herbs from China to various countries throughout Southeast Asia. I grew up smelling these bitter herbs cooking in the house but never put much thought into them. It wasn’t until I reached my teenage years and suffered from irregular menstruation and eventually amenorrhea. I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) at 19 and the only solution my OB/GYN had was to place me on birth control pills. She also stated I would have difficulty conceiving in the future. That was a huge wake up call for me; I knew there had to be something out there that could help me. Thankfully my aunt introduced me to acupuncture and I was able to kick PCOS to the curb!

After my experience with Chinese Medicine I knew I had to study this medicine and help other women suffering from reproductive disorders. I felt it was my calling to educate women and let them know that they don’t have to suffer from PCOS, endometriosis, painful periods, or infertility because Chinese Medicine can help!

In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, and our 5-year old chocolate lab, Kona. I also enjoy reading and watching crime docuseries.

You have no idea how great you’re designed to feel!

 was told growing up my irregular and uncomfortable symptoms were normal and easily fixed with a pill. I always knew there was another way, a way that aligned with my beliefs and addressed the true imbalance at hand. 

While in acupuncture school, I went on a journey to understand my symptoms and with the knowledge from Traditional Chinese Medicine, I began to feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life. I now feel very confident my diagnosis of PCOS will not hold me back from becoming a mother in the future. 

My passion is to help you harness your healing capabilities to reach your health and fertility goals- whatever that might look like to you. 

Some facts about me!

  • I’m an adrenaline junkie and will never say no to a fun thrill
  • I’m Scuba certified with around 100 logged dives. I used to visit the Florida Keys in the summers and do Coral reef restoration work.
  • My favorite reality tv show is Love Island UK
  • I broke my ankle in 2020 trying to learn how to skateboard. I couldn’t walk (much less run) without pain daily for almost 2 years until I met a doctor that changed my life. I believe this experience has made me a better practitioner. 
  • I’ve lived in Georgia, Florida, Hawaii, and now I’m a resident of NC!
