My front desk is your front desk

Hi, my name is Karina. I’m a Front Desk Coordinator at Cherry Blossom Healing Arts. I graduated from a Medical Billing and Coding program in January of 2021. I was born and raised in the country suburbs of Chester County Pennsylvania where instead of passing traffic cones in the morning, I would pass Amish buggies!

Although I grew up in the countryside, I have always been a city girl at heart. The city of DC has always felt like home to me, so now I am prepared to offer you a sense of home when you visit our office. I’m here to help with all your scheduling needs and address any concerns you may have—but most importantly, ‘’m here to give you a sense of belonging. Don’t be shy, give us a call!

It’s Only Up From Here

I am not a fan of planning ahead, especially when it comes to accomplishing large goals. I switched college majors about 3 times and dropped out (mentally) a few times too many. One day, I stumbled upon Medical Coding online and the next thing I know I’m buying my textbooks for my first semester.

Since graduating from the Medical Billing and Coding program, I had been wanting to join the medical field in any administrative position I could. I would constantly get asked what kind of medical practice I wanted to work for and I never had one in mind. I just knew whatever practice I ended up at, it was going to be a great one—and I was right!

My position here has not only given me a chance to test my skill set, but it has also taught me to get out of my comfort zone. As long as I am working at Cherry Blossom, my goals are to expand my skills, mindset, and spirituality.

Delivering Effective HealthCARE

Cherry Blossom delivers on every level!

I started seeing Elyse at Cherry Blossom Healing Arts four years ago and it has improved my life significantly! Before I started treatment, I didn't believe acupuncture worked and now I'm converted! Elyse has fixed some old medical issues and helps me manage my ongoing and new ailments. From the effectiveness of the treatment to the warm and inviting office, Cherry Blossom delivers on every level. When the office could finally reopen after COVID lockdown, I made an appointment immediately because I knew Cherry Blossom would follow the highest level of safety protocols and make sure I could continue treatment without risking my health. Cherry Blossom is a great place with fantastic people, especially Elyse!
