Sierra's interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine began at a young age. She grew up with many allergies and sensitivities (food & environmental), she was often sick, frequently taking antibiotics or medications that did not help her condition, and many times had adverse reactions to the modern medicine prescribed to her. While in her teens, she began looking into other alternatives including natural medicine. She soon discovered Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She knew this was exactly how she wanted to help others who have experienced similar situations in their lives. Her personal experience with TCM continue to fuel her dedication to helping others maintain their health in a natural and safe manner while understanding the importance of Western Medicine when appropriate.
Sierra is very passionate about learning and will continue to learn to enhance the treatments of her patients.
