Bill Reddy, MS, L.Ac.

 

Bill began his career as an Aerospace Engineer, flight testing

helicopters with the US Navy, putting satellites in space with

the US Air Force Space Test Program, and writing the Test and

Evaluation Master Plan for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. 

He continued his education pursuing masters degrees in Robotics

and Systems Engineering at Florida Institute of Technology and 

George Mason University, respectively.

All that came to an abrupt halt when he was misdiagnosed with a brain tumor. Bill decided to re-evaluate his life, and came to the realization that studying acupuncture and Oriental medicine was the correct path, studying under professors and graduates of Beijing and Shanghai medical schools.  Since that time, he has been working on bridging the gap between acupuncturists and physicians, and pioneering integrative health across the nation.
