“I have been interested in complimentary alternative medicine my entire life,” Heather declares. “I sought out Chinese medicine for the first time 17 years ago for chronic respiratory infections and found the strength of Chinese herbs over powered all of the western pharmaceuticals I had been treated with in the past.”
Her Chinese medical doctor also linked her respiratory infections to an emotional event that was occurring at that time. He treated the emotional state by treating her mind which then led to the healing of the internal pathology. At that moment it became clear that her passion in life was to heal people as a whole, mind, body, and spirit.Graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Kinesiology and a minor in Nutrition from California State University Fullerton,she became a strength and conditioning coach, fitness instructor and nutritionist for 13 years for high school, college and professional athletes all over Southern California; teaching hundreds of boot camps and a variety of fitness classes throughout the years in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Orange County. Heather then proceeded to finish massage therapy school and opened several successful massage therapy practices in Newport Beach, Anaheim and Long Beach California.
During that period, Heather began graduate school at Southern California University of Health Science (SCUHS). SCUHS is one of the highest ranking Chinese Medical Schools in the country with a rigorous 31/2 yr full time program and it stands the highest ranked school in that field in California, being ACAOM and WASC accredited. Heather graduated Valedictorian of her class and also received the highest of honors, the prestigious Chinese Herbology award, Shen Nong, which is given to one student each year which is presented to the one student that shows exceptional skills in Herbal Pharmacology, raw herbal formula prescription, and herbal pharmacy management.

She then completed a 3-year internship program at the University Health Center of Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles interning under some of the top doctors in the world. During that time she was chosen to run the Alternative Medicine department for California State University Fullerton’s Health center.
