  DaLyn Greer – Office Manager

 DaLyn Greer

DaLyn Tolman Greer joins Boise Acupuncture Co-op (BAC) with enthusiasm, passion and a love for details. She worked at a bank before getting married and starting a family. She raised three beautiful children all of which live in the Treasure Valley. DaLyn worked as an office manager for a DO in Colorado Springs, Co. Upon moving to Idaho, she began working for Data Imaging, Inc., managing their Document Conversion Center.

After aggravating a chronic back injury a few years ago that prevented her from working full-time, she sought help from the medical community that offered her no permanent solution short of back surgery and drugs. In tears, DaLyn went to The People’s Clinic, here in Boise to seek a “drug free” alternative for the pain. Acupuncture from Stacey Kelsey and Gretchen Huettig and physical therapy from pt180 has changed her life. DaLyn’s back has never felt better, her husband calls it, “her miracle back”. She is honored and excited to be a part of BAC and to be working with Gretchen, Stacey, and all the wonderful volunteers. She believes in community acupuncture because plain and simple, it works and it’s affordable.  When DaLyn is not at the BAC, she is babysitting her grandson’s, and hanging with her family and dog Sophie.
