CeeJay Cantu, Office Manager
Dr. Rodney is pleased to have CeeJay as our Office Manager and our daily delight. Patients rave about her warmth and manner.
In a word CeeJay is “AWESOME”. A native Floridian, she fell in love with Oriental Medicine when she was only a teenager after going through personal medical issues. She spent seven years working for different medical practices not liking something they all had in common; the patients needs never really came first. However, at The Dunetz Wellness Center, she makes sure that the patients’ needs always come first. In her spare time, CeeJay enjoys gardening, crafting, and spending time with her three children and wonderful husband.
“If I can turn one frown upside down, my day was all worth it”
CeeJay is a special part of our team!
Jennifer Daisey, L.Ac, Acupuncturist & Clinic Assistant
During her undergraduate studies, Jennifer developed an interest in natural health and holistic medicine. After completing her Bachelor’s degree in exercise science, graduating magna cum laude, she and her husband relocated from Maryland to South Florida. They started their family, having a son and a daughter, and she later enrolled in Acupuncture Massage College in Miami, FL to pursue a career in holistic health as an acupuncturist, where she received her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine and then her acupuncture license from the state of Florida.
Jennifer has spent the last few years practicing Oriental Medicine while adding two more sons to their family.
She loves learning and researching about all things related to natural health, and uses her extensive knowledge and skills to help people heal and be well. She is valued part of the Dunetz team and loves helping people on their journey to better health!
Lorelei Loudis, L.Ac, Acupuncturist & Clinic Assistant
Lorelei Loudis is a native of South Florida whose interest in holistic medicine began while living in Europe. She graduated from New School for Social Research, New York City, magna cum laude, with a degree in literature. While teaching and raising her daughter in Miami, she began to read extensively about and use natural healing modalities.
After a career in Miami-Dade public schools, her lifelong interest in holistic healing finally led her to the ancient practice of acupuncture. She studied at the Acupuncture and Massage College in Miami, Florida, graduating with a Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine, summa cum laude, in 2015. She was board certified by NCCAOM in 2016.
She has had the opportunity to study under master herbalists from China, and uses an integrative approach to wellness, combining acupuncture, herbal remedies from all over the world, tui’na (Chinese Massage) and cupping to bring patients to optimal health.
The Dunetz Wellness Center is delighted to have such an energetic talented practitioner with us on our team!
Danielle Kravitz, Clinic Assistant
We’re proud to have Danielle on the Dunetz Wellness Center Team!
Her journey into holistic healing began in 2012, when she received inspiration to apply for a job at the local health food store. Over the years she has become increasingly passionate and curious about the dynamic relationships that exist between living beings and the world around them. Danielle loves to continually explore various modalities of natural medicine. She relishes in the knowing that every individual is inherently unique, and that all beings are innately designed to heal and regenerate.
Currently Danielle is in classes full time completing her Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In addition, she is presently at our clinic helping our patients achieve optimal health through this amazing type of healing. Patients rave about how much they love working with Danielle!
