During a career in media that spanned more then 20 years, Colleen observed a wide range of human behavior, which helped to establish a foundation for her clinical observation skills. As a reporter and interviewer, she learned how to get to the heart of the issue and glean insights into what really made a person “tick” — all the while creating a sense of non-threatening intimacy.
Her love of community involvement has led to her ongoing participation in Acupuncturists Without Borders and incorporating techniques into her practice that have proven to be effective in the aftermath of trauma and large-scale disasters.
Colleen is certified by The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®). She is also licensed in Colorado, and has all required insurance and business licenses for practice in the state of South Dakota.
