Board of Directors

We believe in the importance of equal representation

Each population that makes up BAC has equal power in decision making. Our Board consists of an employee representative, patient representatives and volunteer representatives. They are a sociocratic, autonomous governing body that meets quarterly to ensure BAC stays true to our mission, vision, and values.

Get Involved!

Board Members serve two-year terms. Each year in January, about half of the Board positions are up for election. Applications are accepted for open board positions at least 2 weeks prior to the meeting. Anyone is welcomed to apply! As a co-op member, you get a vote in Board elections!

Angie Marianthi (she/her) | President

Angie started her journey with community acupuncture in the spring of 2012. After two treatments she was feeling not only good as new, but also incredibly inspired. From that point on she has been a dedicated clinic volunteer as well as a community acupuncture enthusiast and advocate.

 

"I am endlessly inspired by BAC's unwavering mission to improve the health of their patients and ensure everyone is treated with upmost care and respect."

 

When Angie is not at a BAC board meeting, you can find her playing tunes at Boise Music Lessons with her partner, Marcus, hanging out with their two kiddos (both acu-babies!), or scolding her very naughty cat.

Gretchen Huettig (she/her) | Vice President

Gretchen Huettig has been practicing acupuncture since 2008. Gretchen enjoys being a part of the healing process and empowering patients to heal themselves. She appreciates community acupuncture because of what it adds to health.

 

"Community acupuncture creates an environment of healing that breaks through the isolation of dis-ease and supports each other to achieve our greatest health."

When not needling people, Gretchen can be found running around with her two boys and husband, and often a cat or two. She enjoys the outdoords and connecting with nature.

Jo Burgoon (she/her) | Secretary

Jo believes strongly in the element of community in building a resilient society.  BAC plays such a unique, relevant and needed role in the overall wellbeing of the Treasure Valley.

“I found acupuncture 3 years ago, it was the missing piece to my holistic and functional approach to wellness, I’ve not looked back!”

When she is not helping with BAC Jo is spending time with her husband and young son.  As a family they enjoy snow sports, mountain biking, traveling and laughing.
