Lauren grew up in the Hudson Valley region of New York where she studied Political Science at Marist College. After receiving Acupuncture during her college years, her attention shifted to medicine and exploring a career that was still service-oriented, allowing her to make a direct, positive impact on those she worked with.
Lauren was inspired by how Acupuncture promoted wellness instead of just combating disease, and how it took a person's lifestyle, diet, and even psychology into account while treating the underlying factors contributing to imbalance for sustainable relief. Years later, she still uses her spirit for advocacy to help patients reach their goals while regaining control of their health.
She earned her Master of Science in Acupuncture from The Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at NYCC and passed a series of Board Exams to earn her License and National Diplomate through the NCCAOM. While practicing full-time, Lauren continued her education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine to earn her Doctorate of Acupuncture (D.Ac).
Lauren is passionate about bridging the gaps in understanding between Traditional Chinese Medicine and Bio-medical paradigms. She incorporates current research and evidence-based approaches to treat patients with the highest standards of care.
