Dr. Josie has a unique combination of experience, knowledge, and wisdom, gathered along her lifelong quest for spiritual and physical wellness for herself, her loved ones - human and animal - and the Earth.
Not only is Dr. Josie a licensed veterinarian, but she is also trained in, teaches, and has over 20 years of practical experience in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).
When she began studying TCVM with her teacher Dr. Xie, at Chi University, she also began practicing the internal alchemy of Taoism and Tibetan Buddhism, to integrate the often-forgotten spiritual branch of these ancient healing arts.
She has used holistic healthcare as her primary mode of healthcare personally, studying herbalism in college and wild-crafting her own medicines for personal use over the past 30 years. She has experienced, learned, and practiced numerous energy medicine modalities, integrating them into her practice: Reiki, T-Touch, Bodytalk, Taoist stone medicine, etc.
After earning a Bachelor's degree in biology, neurobiology, and cognitive ethology, she worked in the trenches of the animal welfare field for 8 years. When she discovered veterinarians were using needles and herbs to heal animals, she decided to obtain her degree in veterinary medicine with the intention of practicing holistic veterinary medicine.
While in veterinary school, she introduced the student body to alternative methods of healing including acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy, and herbal medicine by inviting leading holistic veterinarians to lecture and teach. And she refused the free bags of kibble, making her own homemade raw all the way through school.
She has explored numerous lineages of "the old ways", having been fortunate to cross paths with spiritual masters of Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism, North and South American shamanism, and most recently her Norse ancestry. She follows the stars, reads Tarot, and collects stones, lots and lots of stones!
