As we move ever closer to Pain Free Clinic being an actual, physical clinic that you can walk into and get care, we continue to boost the ranks of our team. Our board is now up to six members, each committed to strengthening our community by alleviating its pain.
Lori Guidos and Nikola Zunic are the originals. They are the executive director and board president respectively and they have been with Pain Free Clinic since it was just a mess of legal paperwork and a vision.
A more recent addition is Beth Gram, board treasurer. Beth brings decades of non-profit financial wizardry, plus a seemingly endless assortment of technological knowhow, and is working hard to get everything we’ll need in place to open our doors this summer, even as she’s completing her MSTCM and raising two kids.
Jennifer Bezjak is now our board vice president, Emily Leap is a board member, and the two of them will be our first practitioners. Both are currently working on doctoral degrees in Chinese medicine and so enter their work with Pain Free Clinic steeped in inquiry and research. Most importantly, though, they come in ready to help alleviate the pain in our community.
Most recently, we’ve welcomed Jonathan Brown onto the board. Jonathan is a lifelong East Bay resident with a history of civic engagement. His dedication to the community he grew up in led him to study Chinese medicine and has led him to the work he will help us to do.
This list isn’t finished growing, so check back here to see what we continue to build. And look out, because pretty soon we’re going to having a grand opening announcement, and that you will not want to miss!
