Independent Contractor Position with Be Well Acupuncture & Holistic Health

Working at Be Well Holistic Health has been one of the best experiences I could ask for as a practitioner. Dessa provides a nurturing environment for both patients and practitioners. She is incredibly generous in sharing resources and her experience to help me grow as a practitioner. BWHH is a space where I've felt fully supported to focus on being in practice, treating patients, and doing what I love while the clinic has a small team that handles much of the administrative work, insurance billing, marketing, etc. I feel honored to be a part of the integrative community we have within BWHH. Whether you're just starting out or are a seasoned practitioner, there's so much to be gained here!
