Anne has more than 10 years experience in complementary and alternative medicine. She began her studies in anthropology at UCLA where she fell in love with the philosophy of Chinese medicine. She received her master’s degree from Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California, and later served as a clinical supervisor for the school’s externship at Los Angeles Free Clinic. Anne has advanced training in acupuncture orthopedics from Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills where she collaborated with many western doctors including neurologists, rheumatologists, radiologists and chiropractors.
In addition to her clinical experience, Anne has been involved with complementary and alternative medicine research at both Stanford University and UCLA.
Anne’s particular interest in women’s health led her to Jane Lyttleton, author of “Treatment of Infertility with Chinese Medicine,” in Sydney, Australia, where she studied the integration of assisted reproductive technology with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Anne has successfully treated many gynecological disorders and is especially interested in polycystic ovarian syndrome.
At the heart of her practice, Anne loves to see her patients empowered to move through life’s challenges and encourages them to seek a supportive team of health practitioners. She is equally passionate about introducing Chinese medicine to the western medical community and has been invited to speak at Harbor-UCLA Women’s Health Care Center and UCLA’s Department of Psychoneuroimmunology.
Anne is a member of the American Association of Oriental Medicine and the California State Oriental Medical Association.
