Yunshen Wang
Acupuncturist

I received my bachelor degree of medicine from Kunming Medical University, Yunnan, China in 2001, and then received a Masters Degree of Acupuncture from the New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2013.

Aside from being passionate about Chinese Medicine, I love to do research in the field of oriental health nutrition, Taiji and Qigong.

Debra Dayton
Nutritionist, CLN

My passion for nutrition started in my early teens when I had the revelation that the foods I ate were having an impact on my debilitating migraines. This knowledge was a benefit a few years later when my doctor said I would have to be on medications for the rest of my life if I wanted to control my medical issues. I intuitively knew this advice was wrong and went straight to modifying my diet once again. Being able to heal myself through food for the second time was the catalyst for me to seek out a career in nutrition.

I graduated from Rider University with a bachelor’s degree and later went on to the academy of natural health sciences where I received my certification in clinical nutrition and holistic health. I am excited to share my knowledge and follow my passion of helping other heal through nutrition. I believe in a caring and gentle approach to nutritional counseling. I am always encouraging and never shame my clients for missteps I go by the motto, “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction, ends up being the biggest step of your life.” You will not regret taking this step towards health. You will regret not taking the chance.

Whitney Williams
Billing Assistant

I started my journey at Garden State Spine and Pain Institute with a 100-hour internship at the front desk. After successfully passing my NHA Billing and Coding Certification in August of 2016, and completing the internship program, I was immediately offered a position within the GSSPI Billing Department. I am currently studying to become a Certified Professional Coder.

My interest in the medical field was piqued through my experiences at my father’s pharmacy growing up. I always loved the way my father was able to help people in need over the course of his 40 year career as a pharmacist. My father dedicated his life to a career in healthcare making sure people received the medications they needed to live comfortably. I hope to, in turn, be that inspiration in my own daughter, Skylar’s, life.

In my spare time I am spending as much time with my family as possible; and supporting fundraisers for Lupus Awareness.
