Jenna has always been fascinated with holistic medicine.

She received her Masters in Eastern Medicine at Five Branches University, San Jose. She is currently enrolled in the doctorate program as well.

She had the opportunity to work closely with PTST, pain management, stroke rehabilitation, fertility, insomnia, stress, and women’s health. She finds it most rewarding to be able to help people optimize their health and improve their quality of life.
