Dr. Morse has also mentored professional musicians with specific techniques for overcoming their performance anxiety. This work was instrumental in the promotion of her teaching skills, so that today she is a noted lecturer and beloved teacher.
Her interest in acupuncture stemmed from her early interest in herbs during the 1970’s. In the years to follow, she and her husband, owned and operated an organic farm with a national distribution of herbal vinegars and tinctures. Together, they lectured extensively on the uses and benefits of medicinal herbs, conducted classes on growing organic vegetables, herbs and flowers, and on sustainable agriculture. Her extensive work and experience with herbs and foods in this setting, set up a natural progression for her to enter the field of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
