- Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine
- Registered Acupuncturist
Laci is a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Registered Acupuncturist with an eight year background in Longterm and Palliative Care Nursing.
Laci’s current practice encompasses an approach of health promotion and primary prevention of illness. She is passionate about treating patients on all sorts of health and self-care journeys ranging from chronically ill patients to family planning to health maintenance.
Although she has a general practice, Laci’s heart resides in working with palliative or end of life care patients, families, and other caregivers. She is currently in the process of developing a volunteer in hospice support practice for patients, families, and workers on the palliative team. She has high hopes to one day create an Eastern Medicine palliative care movement. Having experience in both Eastern and Western modalities of medicine has placed Laci in alternative areas within the health sciences spectrum giving her a holistic outlook.
Although Laci no longer works in Nursing she still incorporates the knowledge, skills, and treatment strategies that she gained during her time practicing. Fundamentally, her current practice and personal life revolve around the core values of Traditional Chinese Medicine and she considers it to be one of the largest untapped resources for healthcare in Canada.
On a more personal note, Laci is a born and raised wanderer of the Canadian backcountry. If she is not lost in a book you will often find her climbing, hiking, or camping somewhere amongst the trees in Alberta or Saskatchewan. Whether it be travel, music, art, science, medicine, or people; Laci has a natural curiosity and considers herself to be a lifelong learner.
