Tracey came to NZ from England in 1993 to work as a biologist, having completed a BSc in Biochemistry, MSc, and PhD in Applied Biology.
Tracey was one of the first students to enroll at the acupuncture college in Christchurch when it first opened in 1999, studying both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
Since graduating, she has practiced in Christchurch as well as studying Chinese.
She now also works in her new home of Hanmer Springs.
Tracey has previously served as the Vice President of the NZ Register of Acupuncturists and also been an assessor for acupuncturists wanting to become ACC accredited.
We talk to Tracey about the turmoil in Christchurch after the earthquake and how she set up free community acupuncture clinics to help people deal with the stress of constant post quakes.
For her contribution to the acupuncture profession, she was awarded the William Wong Doo Award in 2014.
