I have some big news to share! This summer, I am moving out of Chicago to head back to the South; specifically, Roanoke, VA. My husband and I have been discussing this move for a long time, and this spring it all came together. It has been an exciting 12 years in Chicago, and the last 3 years at Five Point have been some of the most rewarding, challenging, and fulfilling to date. My husband is excited to get back to teaching, and I am excited about backyard chickens, being closer to nature, and a slower pace of life. I will continue to practice Chinese Medicine, hopefully at one of the community acupuncture clinics in the area, and am hoping to work with one of the local hospice organizations for end of life care.
Before I leave, I am headed to France for a month-long meditation retreat under the guidance of a wonderful teacher. I am hoping this time will give me a chance to reflect and transition to a new phase of my life. My last day working at Five Point is May 20th, but you might see me around now and then for my own treatments while I recover from retreat and get ready for the big move to VA.
I will sincerely miss my partners, friends, and patients here. You have all shaped me as a person and clinician, and I look forward to coming back for visits as the years go on. Good bye Windy City; Hello Blue Ridge Mountains!
