Teacher Spotlight: Susan Fox of Hill City Acupuncture
Our growing class list would be quite difficult to pull off without the awesome instructors - and businesses - we've been so honored to meet. We'd like to give you the same opportunity to get to know our Chattery teachers a bit better.
Meet Susan Fox from Hill City Acupuncture. She'll be teaching us the basics of Chinese Medicine. More information about the class here.
Susan Fox is owner and operator of Hill City Acupuncture. She was born and raised in Chicago and was leading a fairly normal life when she was suddenly afflicted with a rare neurological disorder. Despite her many protestations, her Cardiologist eventually forced her to seek out Chinese Medicine for her ailment. It was through Chinese Medicine that she experienced the most change, and was eventually able to get her life back. A few years later, she decided that she wanted to help others with their "fall through the cracks" health ailments and enrolled for her Masters in Chinese Medicine in Portland, Oregon. With degree in hand, she headed to study under an herbalist in Thailand, and work in a few hospitals in China, before settling down and starting her own practice here in Chattanooga.
How did you get started in your profession?
Through a personal health crisis. Even though I originally didn't want anything to do with that "woo-woo" medicine, I eventually realized it is what saved my life.
Why do you love Chattanooga?
I am from Chicago, so the 3 things that make it NOT Chicago-less crime, more access to nature, and warm weather...P.S-I also love that darn walking bridge!
What's one topic you'd like to learn through The Chattery?

What's something someone would be surprised to learn about you?
