Audra Whatley received her Bachelor of Science in genetics from Texas A&M University, after which she worked in medical research facilities creating diagnostics and vaccines for allopathic medicine. After a lifetime of battling allergies and sinus problems of her own, she found relief using alternative medicine.

This four-year program consists of 2,600 hours of education including 870 hours of clinical practice and 420 hours of herbology. She is certified as a Diplomate in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as a Diplomate in Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). This includes certification in Clean Needle Technique, Acupoint location and Chinese Herbology. Audra has been a practicing acupuncturist since 2003.
Since her research years, Audra has remained fascinated with and kept an eye on new research that integrates genetics, nutrition and holistic healing. She recently received a post graduate certification in Functional Medicine and enjoys the broader range of practice that this allows.
