Laura’s Education & Training

I often joke that alternative medicine practitioners are education junkies. We love school and every single Chinese medicine practitioner seeks to gain a greater understanding of a medicine that takes a lifetime to master.

I am currently pursuing certification with the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine. This requires specific continuing education credits, clinical experience and the passing of a board exam.

Below is my curriculum vitae. You’ll see specific course work and relevant work experience. Please contact me if you have any questions about my training.
