Hey, folks: you probably don’t know how much it stresses us out to make changes to the schedule…but we’re going to have to do it again. This time, it’s for three happy reasons: two new babies, and one new acupuncturist!
Donald Kirkland is a Detroit native who studied acupuncture in Chicago, where he practiced before moving back and hanging up his shingle in the Cass Corridor. After a recent sojourn on the western side of the state, he’s moved back to Detroit and is excited by the Community Acupuncture model. For the time being you can meet Donald on Thursday afternoons, when he’ll be working alongside Nora. We’re running a $10 introductory special with him, for the whole month of March!
Nora’s wife is pregnant and due in early May, and Nora’s going to take a couple weeks off after the birth to support her (and to hang out with the new person!) Jalyn will be filling in some of Nora’s shifts during that time, and Donald will be working the other shifts.
Also, many of you already know this, but Jalyn is expecting a baby too! She’s due in late June, but will probably need to stop work before then; at which point Donald will be picking up some of her shifts for the duration of her maternity leave.
Please note: We’re going to try to give everyone as much notice as we can about changes to shifts, but (given the not-totally-predictable nature of childbirth) we can’t guarantee that the online schedule – or printed schedules – will always reflect who is working, etc. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and understanding!
Finally: for those of you who are also looking forward to getting treatments from Dianne, our receptionist/apprentice extraordinaire, never fear! We’re going to bring her “online” as soon as possible too! She’s had to back off on hours due to family obligations, but will still be training with Nora on Friday mornings for the time being.
