Jennifer (she/her) is a licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist, and naturopathic doctor. She earned her graduate degrees from Bastyr University and received her undergraduate education at the University of California, Berkeley. Jen found her way to Seattle after growing up in Massachusetts and Northern California.
Working with CAP allows Jen to be part of an incredible mission to increase the accessibility of acupuncture and herbs to the community. Highlights of her clinical education include rotations at the Neighborcare Health acupuncture clinic and the Consejo naturopathic community care site, both located in Columbia City. Jen also served in the Peace Corps in Paraguay, where she supported a rural women’s organization in community education and microfinance endeavors and co-founded a nationwide youth photography project.
Jen is passionate about constitutional medicine, internal medicine, adjunctive cancer care and Chinese herbal medicine. She finds that what makes Chinese medicine both a universal and individualized medicine resides in its ability to encompass a person’s constitution, lifestyle and environment in guiding treatment toward the balance point of health and well-being. Practicing this medicine also connects Jen to her own heritage as a Taiwanese-American. She speaks both Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. In her free time, Jen can be found on the water sailing with her husband or enjoying time at home with their floofy cat.
