Acupuncturist Dr. Amanda Courie, D.Ac. M.Ac., L.Ac.
Amanda grew up on Better Days Farm outside of Greensboro, MD. She completed a B.A. in Writing and Literature at Naropa University in Boulder, CO, where she also intensively studied Mahayana Buddhism. She then earned a Master of Science in Library and Information Studies from Florida State University.
Amanda’s passions include literature and community service. As a young mother of two children, she was fortunate to be able to bring these passions together in a fulfilling career in Youth Librarianship at a busy public library. When her children were teenagers, she had the opportunity to begin her study of acupuncture at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) and is looking forward to a second career in Chinese Medicine. She graduated with a Master of Acupuncture degree in May 2019 and completed the Doctor of Acupuncture program in 2020, including the completion of an internship at the Kaufman Cancer Center at Upper Chesapeake Hospital in Fall 2019.
Amanda brings her extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families to her practice. She is excited to bring her lifelong focus on building community, ensuring equity of services, and supporting the health of the whole family to the field of integrative medicine.
