About Me

Saint Petersburg
I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia (then known as Leningrad, USSR). There I received my undergraduate degree in Chemistry in 1973 and studied Chinese traditional medicine at Leningrad Medical University Department of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. My initial interest began when I injured my knee. My orthopedic physician told me it may heal in three to four months time, but if it didn’t, I would need surgery. After six acupuncture sessions, it was fully healed.
UCI Sign
I emigrated to the United States in 1975 with my husband and our young son, becoming a naturalized US citizen in 1981. I continued my education in Chemistry and received my Master of Science degree from University of California, Irvine in 1981. I put my interest in acupuncture and the healing arts on hold until we were established and secure. Nevertheless, cultivating and maintaining good health within my family remained a high priority.
Med Study
Some years into my career in the corporate world, I realized I had more to offer and soon found my way back to the classroom–this time at South Baylo University in Anaheim, California for their Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program. After graduation in 2001 and passing my licensing examination, I began in private practice at Affiliated Neurology Center in Laguna Hills, California. I was impressed by the union of Western and Eastern medical traditions achieved there by Dr. E. Spokoyny. I still practice there in addition to treating patients in my home office.
