About Jack

I became fascinated with medicine as a sophomore in highschool helping my mother study for nursing school. Working through flashcard stacks of muscles and bones, pouring over diagrams of kidney physiology, I was enchanted by the intricate beauty of the body. I decided I was going to be a Doctor and set about learning all I could about medicine, taking any relevant classes in highschool, self-studying books, and before long, studying pre-med in university. As I made my way through pre-med I started to feel dissatisfied that the system I was dedicating my life to had little to no room for the craniosacral, qi gong, or herbalism that made up most of my own experiences with effective wellness.I took some time off of school in search of a new heading. I dedicated months to finding an alternative for my healing profession that included breadth and depth of care for peoples’ health, and the practices I found most impactful in my own life. I interviewed naturopaths and psychologists, and shadowed chiropractors and craniosacral practitioners. In the two days following Susannah here at Great Turning, I saw things that my biology-focused brain found inconceivable. Acupuncture was certainly the most astonishing and intriguing path for my way forward. I proceeded to apply to schools and self-study Chinese Medicine while choosing which school to attend.
