Jillian Alsup


Jillian didn’t know what she wanted to be when she grew up. She played around with several careers: U.S. Army Military Police Officer (HOOAH!), police officer, private investigator, and even a Mystery Bus Rider (ask her about this... it was an awesome gig!), but she never really felt that these were “her.” Then she found acupuncture. Jillian believes that acupuncture has the ability to transform lives and improve overall wellbeing.
