Jodie began her career as a research scientist focusing on the field of virology & infectious disease. After graduating from the Florida Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Molecular Biology, she held research positions in the pharmaceutical industry, including developing vaccines against viruses at Wyeth-Lederle.
On a quest to discover a means to practice “good” science, she left her position at Wyeth-Lederle after five years to focus on eliminating pathogens from donated blood at the biotech company, Vitex.
Jodie continued her work as a research scientist at Rockefeller University, managing both the Laboratory of Virology & Infectious Disease and the Center for the Study of Hepatitis C. Next, her science career led her to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) Immunology Department where she participated in research to develop non-conventional cancer therapies in collaboration with their Integrative Medicine Center. She experienced firsthand the efficacy of integrative medicine for cancer support. While maintaining her position at MSKCC, she received her Master of Science from Tri-State College of Acupuncture.
For the past seven years, Jodie has compounded her 18 years of science research experience and her passion for acupuncture to provide patients with the most effective means of reaching their health potential. She specializes in helping patients with a wide array of pain conditions and internal organ disorders, treating them through a combination of acupuncture philosophy and dry needling.
