Ta-Ya Lee, CRNP, MSN, MAc, MBA
Born in Taiwan, Ta-Ya Lee was raised in the heart of a culture renowned for its history and sophistication in Eastern Medicine. She went to the Nursing and Midwifery Junior College devoted to preparing nurses for work in hospitals. After working for one year as a nurse, Ms. Lee had an opportunity to come to the United States and attend the University of Minnesota where she received her BA in psychology while she prepared for her nursing licensure.
Ms. Lee came to Maryland after selecting a graduate program in the School of Nursing at Johns Hopkins University where she received her Master of Science in Nursing, and trained as an adult nurse practitioner. She then went to the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, Maryland and where she received her Master of Acupuncture degree and a certificate in Chinese Medicine. This enabled her to apply her discipline in acupuncture for the additional benefit of her patients. This led to her beginning in the practice of integrated medicine.
Ms. Lee’s education that followed included an MBA from Johns Hopkins, an advanced program in Chinese Herbal Medicine, and currently she is enrolled in the MPH program at Johns Hopkins as well as a Bravewell Fellow at the University of Arizona. Ta-Ya has worked for seven years at the Johns Hopkins Physician’s Community at Wyman Park in Internal Medicine. Ta~Ya believes that this multidiscipline approach is the most balanced way to take care of the needs of people.
