“Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me.” -Michael Scott (The Office)
Ghoncheh was born and raised in Los Angeles. Ever interested in medicine since childhood, she was on the pre-med track until she got to UCSD and realized it didn’t feel quite right. She grew to become interested in the mind-body connection which sparked a passion for holistic health and Eastern medicine. She attended graduate school in the gorgeous coastal town of Santa Cruz where she earned her Doctorate in Traditional Chinese Medicine, followed by 5 rigorous board exams and is now a practicing licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She is thrilled to have moved back to San Diego permanently with her fiance. Ghoncheh is building her own acupuncture practice from the ground up and is so excited about what is in store and for the opportunity to help lots and lots of people. When Ghoncheh isn’t running all aspects of her business and working as the office manager at Hammer Prep, she loves to rollerskate, curate Spotify playlists, do yoga, read, and chill out with her cat.
