“Doctor, Friend, Advocate”
Dr. Money spent over a decade in the US Military serving in a number of roles that included being an US Air Force Flight Surgeon, the Senior Medical Advisor to the Department of Homeland Security, the Head Physician Epidemiologist for the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Global Emerging Infections Surveillance and Response institute, and the Chief Medical Officer of Integrative Medicine for DoD’s Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury. She completed her medical training in Atlanta, GA at Morehouse School of Medicine, and completed her internship and training in Aerospace medicine and Preventive medicine through the military medical facilities of Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Her training and care is focused on providing comprehensive medical care for the entire family, with specialized skills in battle-field and disaster medicine.
During harsh conditions and often coming up against the limits of allopathic medicine in treating chronic illness and injuries in the military, Dr. Money was sent out on a multi-year assignment to the far reaches of the globe (including the jungles of Brazil, secluded villages of India, and a number of remote regions of Africa, the Orient, and Europe) to learn the most effective healing practices for treating trauma and pain, from the physical to the emotional, with a special emphasis in regenerative medicine. Upon returning, she was able to use the knowledge and skills she gained to treat military-veteran patients and disenfranchised populations, along with creating training programs for other practitioners to learn these skills. She is board certified in Preventive Medicine and the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine, along with extensive training in functional medicine and medical acupuncture.
Dr. Money enjoys providing comprehensive and holistic care for her patients, along with a special focus on integrative mental health for those patients needing treatment and support in these areas. Having moved to the San Diego area in February 2021 she finds it an absolute delight and privilege to provide holistic primary care for the patients at Perlman Clinic. During her time off she enjoys running on the beach, practicing yoga, spending time with her family and dogs, going on spiritual retreats, enjoying wholesome comedy, and exploring the beauty and warmth of Southern California.
