Roxanne Nichols, Earning a Doctorate to Follow Her Dreams

Roxanne Elizabeth

“I was four months into opening my acupuncture practice when the pandemic struck. Business abruptly came to a halt and I was faced with some heavy decisions. With what courage I could muster, I took some big risks. I moved my practice to a much larger space in a more central location, upgraded everything and overhauled my business model. I invested everything into my dream. While business remained shaky, I made an even crazier decision and enrolled in a doctorate program. Never did I think any of these decisions would have come so soon – if ever – and today I’m both proud and humbled to announce that I am officially a Doctor of Acupuncture (DAc) and my private practice is growing and providing the deepest career satisfaction I could have ever imagined. Keep following your dreams, my friends. Sometimes the scariest things pay off in the biggest ways.” – Roxanne Nichols
