Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be a powerful support for body, mind and spirit especially as we reach full maturity with a continued desire to live a vital life. With age and experience comes the promise of growth and wisdom which we manifest according to our unique gifts. Penny extends a warm welcome into her treatment room to everyone and is especially attuned to engaging and supporting mature adults to flourish in their days and years.
Penny trained internationally in Classical Five Element acupuncture at the College of Five Element Acupuncture in Dublin, Ireland. In the United States she continued to train at the Maryland University of Integrative Health in Laurel, Maryland. She volunteers at the CASA Pine Ridge Community Center in Silver Spring MD, where free acupuncture is offered to immigrants, refugees and other neighbors in need.
Penny also holds a Bachelors and Doctorate in Psychology with a specialization in the psychological and behavioral aspects of aging. Her professional experience spans clinical and health policy research, program planning, and policy development in federal government, university and not-for-profit settings.
T’ai Chi and mindfulness practice support Penny in her daily life which she gratefully and joyfully shares with her husband of 37 years.
