Natalie is a board certified licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) and Chinese herbalist. Originally from Thailand and Hong Kong, Natalie's interest in Chinese Medicine began at a young age.
Her passion for healthcare led her to work for Johnson & Johnson and McNeil Company in New York where she worked in marketing and advertising for several national pain relief brands.
Along the way, Natalie realized that she wanted to engage in health in a more personal way and therefore decided to go back to her roots and pursue the studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a medicine which the understanding and the treatment of the whole body and the mind has a special appeal to her. She received her Masters in TCM and Acupuncture from Yo San University where she graduated with honors and was a professor of Chinese Herbology and Acupuncture for several years. She also received her B.A. and graduated Cum Laude from Johns Hopkins University.
Natalie continued her post-graduate clinical studies with Dr. Gong in Shanghai, China, focusing on gynecology, infertility, and autoimmune diseases.
She also volunteered at the Venice Family Clinic, in an integrative medical setting with other Medical Doctors, Psychiatrist, and Chiropractors, treating low-income patients with pain, anxiety, depression, diabetes, and insomnia, to name a few.
Natalie takes a special interest and has advanced training in pain management, and in gynecology, hormone balance, fertility (female and male) ~ natural and Assisted Reproductive Technology (IVF, IUI, Frozen Embryo Transfer, Donor's cycle, Surrogacy), recurrent miscarriage, pregnancy support, and post-partum care, and menopause.
