Doctoral Program Assistant
Shelley quickly fell in love with Chinese Medicine 11 years ago while volunteering at a community acupuncture clinic in San Francisco. This led her here, to Yo San and earning her Master's in TCM and most recently completing an externship in Beijing, China. Her interest in health and the body have also been explored through dance, yoga, singing, meditation, and qi gong. Shelley is excited to be a part of the Yo San team and is looking forward to growing a private practice.
