At the racetrack, she first became interested in acupuncture as a therapeutic and diagnostic tool. She practiced in the Lexington area for ten years. Over time, her practice shifted from a traditional Western medicine practice to an integrative approach encompassing both Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and Western Medicine. In 2013 she returned to Dallas and opened an ambulatory acupuncture practice servicing horses and small animals.
