Emma Sanchez

Sarah Richards | Volunteer CoordinatorAdvisor, Team Leader

Emma Sanchez has been collaborating with Acupuncture Relief Project since 2016, staying for extended periods of time as a volunteer and Team Leader.

Emma received her Masters in Acupuncture from the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in 2011 and her diplomate in Chinese Herbology from Pacific College of Medicine in 2013. Her previous job as a fashion stylist had given her a taste for world travel and remembering that a desire to work with NGOs abroad had provided the initial motivation to change careers, at the end of 2015 she closed her private practice and moved out of New York to do just that. She also volunteers for projects in Guatemala and Peru, trying to stay with each community for as long as is practical with the goal of consolidating change and instilling useful lifestyle practices for as many of her patients as possible.
