My Story

I was born in Tianjin, China, the fourth of five children. As a child, I fell in love with the idea of becoming a doctor while watching my Mom work as a doctor at the local hospital.  I saw how people loved and respected her, and all the help she gave them. I wanted to following in her footsteps. Initially, I wanted to go into Western medicine, but my Mom encouraged me to learn Eastern Medicine. So, I studied at Tainjin College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China for 5 years to become a specialist in both traditional Chinese and Western Medicine. I believe I've learned the best of both worlds.

After graduating from medical school, I served for 17 years as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine in inpatient, outpatient and emergency room departments at HeDong Traditional Chinese Medical Hospital.  During this time, I served as a physician, and also supervised every aspect of the Internal Medicine Department. As a supervisor, I was responsible for training over 50 new medical school graduates as they transitioned from classroom theory, to the reality of treating real patients with serious illnesses.  After 15 years of working in this capacity, I was promoted to Chief of Staff of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  With this promotion came greater supervisory and training responsibilities. As a result, I specialized in the difficult cases that physicians were not comfortable treating, including cancer.

Always seeking ways to improve patient care in both eastern and western medicine, I poured myself into research. Some of that research was published in Tianjin Traditional Chinese Medicine and The Practical Traditional Medicine Journal.

My family moved to the United States in 2001, where I trained at South Baylo University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles and received my California Acupuncture License. I then received my Colorado license, and opened my clinic in Colorado Springs. Although limited by license to practice only specific forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments, I still use my reservoir of wisdom and knowledge in assessing and diagnosing illnesses and medical problems.

It is a privilege and honor serve the community of Colorado Springs.
