Christina is born and raised in Evergreen, Colorado. She grew up doing all activities outdoor and adventure related. As a young child she was backpacking, climbing, hiking. When Christina was 14 years old she was infected with Lyme Disease. After exhausting her Western Medicine options, Christina sought treatment for acupuncture, mostly out of desperation! At the time, Christina was in a military training program called Civil Air Patrol where she flew cessna planes and learned the military lifestyle. She was also playing varsity soccer at Evergreen High School. Acupuncture helped her so much that she decided to pursue it as a career instead of joining the Air Force as planned.
After High School, Christina began college majoring in Chinese Studies at University of Hawaii Manoa on Oahu. Living near some of the worlds best beaches proved difficult to focus on school so Christina moved home to Colorado to buckle down on classes. She completed her undergraduate at Colorado State University and took the Holistic Health program at Front Range Community College. Christina began her long awaited journey to acupuncture school in San Diego, California. As a beach snob, Christina lived on Coronado island and enjoyed the beach life. After one year in California, Christina decided to move home, again. She was eager to leave Evergreen as a teenager and only driven to get home to Evergreen as an adult! Christina Finished her two Masters degrees in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from CSTCM in Denver.
Being a life long learner, Christina spontaneously decided to go back to school to be a true master of Acupuncture and learn a more science-based approach. Christina traveled to Portland, Oregon for four days per month for two years to continue her education. Through this world renowned program she was able to further her travels and took on several internships in places such as Peru, China and New York city.
Throughout all the travel and studies, Christina managed and played on several competitive soccer teams. Soccer is just as important in her life as acupuncture and her family.
Today, Christina and her husband Connor, also a native of Evergreen, live with their two dogs in their hometown. Both Christina and Connor play competitive soccer, hike, climb slot canyons in Utah, and weight lifting in their free time. Christina also travels often with her mother who is a travel agent.
Christina is the owner and founder of Evergreen Medical Acupuncture, LLC. She first opened her clinic in downtown Evergreen above her mother's travel agency in 2012.

Jill was born and raised in Redwood City, California and has recently made Colorado home. She has always been an active, outdoors person but after finishing her Bachelor's degree, she began getting debilitating migraines that limited her ability to do the things she loved. After exhausting all other options, she decided to see if acupuncture could help. Lo and behold, it was the answer to not just the migraines but to better sleep, less stress, and a healthier lifestyle. Jill fell in love with the holistic nature of acupuncture and believes wholeheartedly in the mind-body-soul connection of the medicine. She sees herself not just as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine, but as someone who teaches people about how to best care for themselves. Jill believes in the prevention of disease, not just the treatment of it.
After graduating, Jill joined two clinics specializing in fertility medicine. She took multiple continuing education classes and learned from masters in the field to become a fertility specialist herself. Her passion is helping couples achieve their dream of having a family. She works in conjunction with local reproductive endocrinologists and OBGYNs to achieve the best results possible. During her time working with many women for fertility, they began asking about how acupuncture could help their skin and how they could look like a "younger mom". At this point she began studying more about cosmetic acupuncture, both from the perspective of working on the face directly as well as a hormonal level. She is now also trained in a specialized form of cosmetic acupuncture.
Jill spent time interning at ZheJiang Chinese Medical University in Hangzhou, China. She received a certificate of advanced study with an emphasis in gynecology and orthopedics. During her time there she was most taken by the use of Chinese Medicine in conjunction with Western Medicine and works to bring aspects of that into her own practice.
