Note: US Credentialing Definition
The Diplomate of Acupuncture ( NCCAOM - Dipl.Ac ) training and competency is in sharp contrast to the acupuncture training of other healthcare professionals such as chiropractors or registered nurses or even medical doctors who typically receive 100-300 hours of abbreviated training. These other healthcare professionals only treat a limited number of points. NCCAOM certified acupuncturists are also trained in standard medical history gathering, safety, and ethics, and recognition of when to refer patients to other health care professionals or consult with other medical practitioners.

An innovator, during the formative years of wholistic health in the US, she spent 10 years teaching ground breaking continuing education courses (CEU) to healthcare professionals and educators.
Earning certification in Whole Brain Thinking and Accelerated Learning, with expertise in Creativity, Innovation and Systems Thinking, Georgia went on to an impressive corporate career.
As a Organizational Development Specialist she has worked with some of Atlanta’s top Board of Directors, Executives and their C-Level staff along with first-line Mangers. She is known for her abilities to identify and take everyone with her to their "next level."
Fulfilling a long held interest in Oriental/Traditional Chinese Medicine, Georgia returned to the periphery of healthcare as Advisor to an internationally recognized legendary martial artist, Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in the development of world class athletes. Several visits to China opened a deep longing of the heart to return to the field of health and wellness.
Georgia also graduated from internationally recognized (ITEC and CEDESCO), Elaine Sterling Institute in Atlanta. Her credentials as a Licensed Esthetician, enables her ongoing development of specialized knowledge of skin. She is currently a Candidate for recognition by the leading international examining board, ITEC; providing qualifications for the world.

Though it looks like Georgia talks a lot, her great love is working with patients in the Practice. That makes getting her attention to be a guest speaker more challenging; however, be encouraged and persist if you truly have identified with your great need.
