From OAA's newsletter:
 
Maddie Foley, DACM,  is a newly licensed OCOM graduate in her first year of practice. Her formal introduction to Chinese medicine came during her time at The Evergreen State College, where she primarily studied the intersection of physics, consciousness, and psychology. Chinese medicine was a love at first sight, and it didn’t take long for her to start working for a local practitioner. She quickly made the decision to pursue this career path, and has never looked back. Her highlights from graduate school include a two-quarter externship at Fora Health treating patients in addiction recovery, volunteering at Working Class Acupuncture, and serving as the student rep on the OCOM Board of Trustees. Maddie recently relocated to the Eugene area to practice at Cottage Grove Community Acupuncture and Springfield Acupuncture, where she enjoys being a general practitioner, treating a wide range of patients and conditions. Maddie is passionate about helping the profession grow, educating the public, and expanding access to Chinese medicine. She is very excited to serve Oregon acupuncturists in her role as OAA Treasurer, and is grateful for this opportunity to give back. In her free time she likes to hang out with her partner and small doggies, bike, hike, practice guitar, and peruse the stacks at her local record store.
