Sharon Hennessey is currently the Domain Chair for the Acupuncture Department at ACTCM. She has had a diverse career studying art and working in film before segueing to Chinese medicine, thinking it was but one more notch on her belt of professional mastery. For the past 30 years she has consistently stuck with the profession, moved by the profound effects of the medicine. Her greatest teachers have been her patients who have guided her accumulation of knowledge and experience, and her students who have compelled her to look more deeply into the complexities of her profession. She is constantly inspired by the tireless persistence and dedication from students who are willing to spend both their time and money on a profession to help others and make the world a healthier, better place.
