I was born in Switzerland and explored Australia as backpacker in the 90’s. I fell in love with this place straight away. By chance, I found an acupuncturist who also ran a college and after my first session of acupuncture, I knew it’s what I wanted to learn. I was mesmerized by the whole experience. After the completion of my course in 2002, I had to return to Switzerland as I was unable to get a permanent visa to remain down under.

I persisted with my plans of migration and was successfully re-accepted into the country in 2008. Since then, my business journey in Australia has provided me with a steep learning curve and plentiful opportunities to connect, share and serve the wider community. I enjoy how I keep my finger on the pulse with my clinical practice – I couldn’t live without it. The connection to patients is powerful and provides so much insight. I use both acupuncture and classical herbal medicines to assist my patients with a variety of conditions.

More recently, I have started working with other practitioners who are after some guidance or ways to run their clinics/businesses. I love the deep and meaningful connections I establish with my colleagues. Together, we are so much stronger. I want to spend more time making our industry shine.
