Board of Directors
We believe in the importance of equal representation
Each population of BAC has equal power in decision making - our Board consists of an employee representative, patient representatives and volunteer representatives. The Board is a sociocratic, autonomous governing body that meets quarterly to ensure BAC stays true to our mission, vision, and values by overseeing all decisions aside from day-to-day operations. In our effort to be completely transparent with the community, all meeting minutes are open to the public, anyone can attend Board meetings, and anyone can apply for an open position on the Board.
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! You can always find the date of our next Board meeting at the end of the latest meeting minutes, in our email newsletters and on our website under BAC News.
Angie Marianthi | 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.
Stacey Kelsey | Vice President
Stacey has been an active licensed Acupuncturist since graduating from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2009. She loves being a part of people’s healing paths and assisting them as their body changes.
"I believe in Community Acupuncture because it allows for more people to receive more relief."
When she’s not acupuncturing people, she’s often talking about acupuncturing people. Stacey values spending time with friends and family, gardening, outdoors, and community events.

Jo Burgoon | Director
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.
Alison Hutley | Director
Alison first discovered acupuncture in 2013, and has experienced relief and healing for both mental and physical health! She is so proud of what the acupuncturists of the BAC have accomplished and is honored to be a part of their journey. She believes in the BAC's values of strong communities, affordable health care for everyone, and making positive changes for the people of the Treasure Valley.
When Alison isn't Zooming into board meetings, she can found teaching Montessori, napping with her cat, or looking for her next travel destination.
