Meet the Crossroads crew
We are able to provide affordable, high quality, community centered services only because of our awesome staff, from our outreach workers, to our receptionists and our providers.
Silvia: As a parent and NMSU student studying to become a teacher, I am always looking to educate myself to better my quality of life. As part of the staff of Crossroads Community Acupuncture I have discovered a new way to overcome everyday stresses that accompany a parent-student lifestyle. Personally, my mother has had immense results with acupuncture; she has been fighting with an immune- muscle disease, and has been able to enjoy less every day pain, more movement and energy. I enjoy being a part of an organization that provides a healthy and affordable outlet to improve everyday life in the community.
Gianna: I believe that acupuncture should be accessible to everyone who could benefit from it. As a person who has struggled with chronic pain, being able to receive my choice of treatment has been a blessing. I have previously worked for and was a patient at the second biggest acupuncture clinic in the country. When I fell ill, I couldn’t afford to receive treatment at this clinic! That’s when I found a local Community Acupuncture clinic in Rhode Island. I volunteer at Crossroads so that others may have access this wonderful natural medicine.
Ryan: I love sharing acupuncture with everyday people. I constantly grow and learn from every person who I work with, it’s an honor and a joy to serve them.
