Maggie was born and raised in Bozeman, Montana and has always felt a calling to help people. Her interest in Chinese Medicine began when she was struggling with recurrent migraines. Receiving acupuncture treatments on a regular basis was very effective in eliminating the pain of her migraines as well as reducing their frequency. Inspired by her results with acupuncture Maggie attended The Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM), which is ranked the #1 school in the nation by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM). Having received her Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from OCOM, Maggie returned to Bozeman.
Maggie is licensed as an Acupuncturist by the Montana Board of Medical Examiners. She is certified as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), meaning she is board certified in both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. Maggie has a particular passion for treating neurological conditions, especially migraines and pain management. During her studies at OCOM, she was research assistant to Connie Presson, DOM. Dr. Presson’s research on treatment frequency and efficacy for headaches gave Maggie the opportunity to delve more deeply into the power of acupuncture for the treatment of headaches. Maggie is an insightful, compassionate and dedicated practitioner with a deep sense of empathy for those who are struggling with health issues.
"I love Chinese medicine for its natural beauty, profundity, and ability to describe how forces of Nature also apply to the body, linking the micro and macrocosm."
