Introducing our Guest Legacy Leader Valerie Sjoberg, L.Ac.:
Valerie’s interest in healing began in her early twenties when doctors told her she would need to give up running and other physical activities forever due to debilitating back injuries. This spurred an exploration into mind-body and alternative medicine, which ultimately healed her back and allowed her to resume the activities she loved.Today, she works as an acupuncturist and health coach to help activate others’ self-healing abilities and is inching toward a master’s degree in nutrition and functional medicine. She is also a professional writer and aims to accumulate enough words and inspiration to write a novel someday.
