Licensed Oriental Medicine Practitioner
Marissa Sowinski
Part Time Clinic Receptionist

Kenneth is a 2009 graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon with a Masters degree in acupuncture & Oriental medicine. While obtaining his medical training at OCOM, he focused his acupuncture training on the treatment of chronic pain and orthopedics in addition to his training in general medicine. In his clinical year, Kenneth had the privilege to conduct one of his rotations alongside western MD's in the family medicine department of the Oregon Health and Science University Center for Health and Healing.

 

Prior to attending Oriental medicine school, Kenneth obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Penn State in molecular biology and has conducted advanced scientific research in the areas of neuroscience as well as ophthalmology. While working in science, his interest to pursue a career in Oriental Medicine was sparked by his extensive studies in Chinese kung fu as well as Japanese aikido martial arts systems. Outside of the clinic he enjoys cycling, golfing, hiking, running, and spending time with his wife and dog in the great city of Pittsburgh.

Being exposed to acupuncture early in life, as her mother was treated for several herniated discs successfully with acupuncture, she never thought her life would lead her into that direction, but you never know what life may bring and embraces it with open arms. Working part time in the practice as office manager and receptionist, her other career involves the western field of veterinary medicine, but she is avidly pursuing her nursing degree as well. When not spending quality time with her husband at work, working in her other career, or studying, she enjoys hiking, biking, snowboarding, running , and has recently started the fun hobby of quilting. Regardless of where she is or what she is doing, she brings a fun positive attitude to the environment and truly enjoys helping others.
