I began my undergraduate education at St. Mary’s University and finished out of state, where I received my Bachelor’s of Arts in Education and Spanish. While still passionate about teaching, I now enjoy teaching others about their health and helping patients reach their wellness potential. I received a Master’s degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine at Austin, Texas. I am a holistic licensed acupuncturist, Nationally Certified Chinese Acupuncturist, and Herbalist (NCCAOM), serving San Antonio and surrounding areas. I am also the only female and bilingual fellow of A.B.O.R.M. (American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine) in San Antonio. I have specialized experience treating women’s fertility issues from interning and working at the Texas Center of Reproductive Acupuncture in Austin, Texas. I built a succesful private women’s health, fertility, and family practice in El Paso from 2013-2019. While there, I integrated Traditional Chinese Medicine with Western Medicine to collaborate with physicians, gynecologists, reproductive endocrinologists, midwives, and psychologists in order to provide the best care possible for my patients and their families.  I have had the opportunity of treating over 2,200 patients for an array of health issues, and I have gathered nine years of experience treating patients for a variety of illnesses; including, women’s health, IVF/IUI support, fertility support, stress/anxiety, depression, immune support, airborne/food allergies, pediatrics, alleviating cancer treatment side effects and other chronic/acute ailments. 

My style of practice is a holistic approach to the whole person and not just treating the symptom. At Alma Acupuncture, I provide quality health care by improving the overall well being of each person. My primary goal is to provide patients with individualized care for their specific needs.  I work with each patient in order to formulate a wellness plan that includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, and/or food recommendations in order to promote physical and emotional well-being. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have a cumulative effect on the body, and these treatments produce healing results. I am dedicated to building a relationship with each patient to better create a renewal of wellness within each person.
