Randi acquired her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture in 1998 following an intensive three-year program at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, Maryland (now known as Maryland University of Integrative Health, in Laurel), the oldest accredited acupuncture institute in the United States. She was subsequently invited to join the faculty, where she taught and supervised clinical work until 2003. Known for her compassion and exceptional ability to create a nurturing environment, Randi excels at fostering growth and well-being, whether in the treatment room or the classroom.


With over two decades of experience, Randi also offers specialized animal acupuncture services, having obtained her certification in 2001. She was also  instrumental in teaching and later directing the animal acupuncture program in Maryland until 2015, and continues to contribute to the training of acupuncturists seeking licensure to treat animals.


In addition, Randi completed a Masters Degree in Thanatology, the study of death, dying, and bereavement, and is also certified as a hospice acupuncturist. Drawing upon her extensive education and experience, she offers compassionate and comprehensive holistic care to patients, their families and pets that are facing end-of-life challenges, as well as those dealing with loss, grief, and bereavement. Additionally, Randi is certified as an international oncology acupuncturist, further expanding her expertise in the field.


When not devoting herself to her practice and teaching, Randi can often be found on a hiking trail with her family, seeking to connect with nature and push her boundaries, whether by exploring the Grand Canyon or scaling Mt. Whitney.
