Jane was introduced to alternative medicine at the age of 11 when she saw a chiropractor for her injuries after falling out of a tree. Her experience led her to look into studying chiropractic medicine but “after working for an acupuncturist and seeing the full range of conditions acupuncture and herbology could treat I was fully persuaded to study Traditional Chinese Medicine.”
After receiving her BA from Binghamton University, Jane attended Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego where she attained her MSTOM. During her 4 years in California she assisted Donna Keefe, L.Ac. a renowned fertility specialist. Her studies also included an internship at the San Diego Hospice and Palliative Care, Senior Clinic at First Lutheran Church, a free, community style mobile clinic for seniors, and Integrative Health Nights: Community Clinic, a donation based, mobile clinic for underserved populations.
Jane is drawn to community acupuncture because “it allows people to get acupuncture often and that’s how acupuncture works best.” Her specialties include fertility and sports medicine. Outside of her work as an acupuncturist Jane’s interest includes supporting the growth of happy and healthy communities, cross-training, obstacle racing, yoga and lots of music.
I started getting acupuncture from Jane and for the first time in my adult life I went 3 weeks without getting a single headache.
