My appreciation for alternative medicine began with my own health issues. For years, I had been suffering from lingering knee and shoulder pain, relying on strong pain medications to see me through. Hoping for a better option than a lifetime of pills, I turned to acupuncture and Chinese medicine and soon found relief.

The experience was a turning point for me, both in my approach to my own health and in my career. Having worked in research libraries for over 20 years in Iran and the United States, I decided to pursue a degree in Chinese medicine. That came as surprising news for my friends and family, many of whom were doctors, but I was committed to pursuing this new passion.
While working full-time during the day, I spent my nights attending classes at South Baylo University. Within four years, I had graduated, passed my board exam and received a license to practice as an acupuncturist and herbalist. I opened Green Wellness Acupuncture in 2009 and have since helped hundreds of patients find an alternative path to health.
