Based on her experience as a child of volunteering at a local hospital and nursing home, Dr. Zackson initially decided to acquire training as an operating room nurse. She developed clinical expertise in patient care, an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and a deep interest in the mind-body connection.
