Education

Annie received her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University. She is licensed in the state of Washington and is NCCAOM board certified in Acupuncture and Chinese medicine.  She completed an externship at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, specializing in gynecology and women’s health.  Annie completed the practitioner training in the Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy (ATMAT) at the Arvigo Institute, LLC in New Hampshire. While there, she was inspired to extend her training with Dr. Rosita, learning even more about ‘Supporting Pregnancy from Pre-Conception to Post Partum’.  Annie’s specialty training in the treatment of women throughout their pregnancy led her to complete the Big Belly Services Doula Program in the summer of 2009 where she gained more insight into how to support women during this time.
