Two things shaped Dana Fine’s path toward her career in Chinese medicine: her dad and sports.
“My dad is a gastroenterologist, so I’ve always been interested in the health field,” said Fine, an alumna of Northbrook’s Solomon Schechter Day School.
In addition, she had always been drawn to sports, and she began her career as a sports journalist writing for the Women’s Sports Foundation and Nike Women.
“I was dealing a lot with athletes, and a lot of times, I would hear about their ailments, and they would talk to me about their aches and pains,” Fine said.
