She is registered with the Chinese Medicine Registration Board of Victoria (CMRBV) under Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), and Australian Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Association (AACMA). Armed also with Degrees in Environmental Design and Architecture, Jacqueline began her career with a Landscape Architect firm in Victoria for 10 years, before making the bold switch to pursue her passion in Chinese Medicine and holistic healthcare.
Her passion for Chinese Medicine was ignited at a young age, drawing from her Malaysian Chinese heritage. Afflicted with problematic skin conditions such as hives and eczema, Jacqueline remembers the numerous trips to the doctors’ and skin specialists’ offices. It was not until she was treated with Chinese Medicine did her frequent skin flare-ups were under control and eventually, disappeared. As Chinese Medicine was a strong element in her culture and household, Jacqueline was regularly taking herbal medicine for nourishment and supplementation from a tender age. This has greatly influenced her to focus in dermatology, and to further share her knowledge and experience in helping others.
