Suzanne was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. Upon completing high school, she traveled to Olympia, Washington to attend Evergreen State College. Suzanne studied environmental science and completed her Bachelors of Science degree in 2002. Following graduation, Suzanne worked for the U.S. Forest Service for several years. She conducted plant species surveys throughout Washington State, Oregon and Northern California.
Feeling the need to serve the community more directly, Suzanne shifted her focus to medicine. She studied nursing at South Puget Sound Community College and received my nursing assistant certification in 2004. Suzanne then worked at the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City.
Around this time, Suzanne’s father began to visit an acupuncturist. Seeing his success with Chinese medicine, she decided that this was something she wanted to learn more about. In 2005, Suzanne moved to Boulder, Colorado and began her studies at the Southwest Acupuncture College.
While at S.W.A.C., she had many opportunities to practice Chinese Medicine in the school’s in-house clinic. Through experiences in these clinics, all with different focuses, Suzanne became passionate about acupuncture for women’s health. She started my practice in Boulder specializing in OB-GYN. In 2014, Suzanne joined the staff at Partners In Health and expanded her practice from Boulder into Lafayette.
Suzanne is in our office on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings by appointment only!
