Dr. Will was born and raised in Pennsylvania. After spending time in Atlanta and Sarasota she has recently relocated to the DC area. She enjoys hiking with her dog, biking, dancing and healthy cooking. Her passion for Oriental Medicine stemmed from personal experience. After chronic allergies and digestive issues were left unresolved despite numerous attempts with conventional medicine, she turned to Oriental Medicine where she discovered a whole new way of life. She got great results and decided from there that this is what she wanted to dedicate herself to. She has a strong passion for medicine and helping others.

Dr. Will believes in a holistic healthcare model which addresses the whole person aiming to treat the very root of the problem versus just managing the symptoms. She is committed to patient care and welcomes any questions about nutrition, or Acupuncture or how her services may be of benefit to you.
