Ann Zimmerman, LAc, MAcOM Ann's curiosity and respect for the diversity among people, systems of medicine, religions, and landscapes were illuminated from her opportunities to travel at a young age. After her first trip to Asia, Ann's passion for eastern medicine and philosophy were officially ignited, along with interests in yoga, meditation, and herbs, leading to her undergraduate major of Cultural Anthropology. After college, Ann knew she wanted to help people and to work with plants. This led her to Chinese medicine. After four years of study, she received a Master's degree from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. She feels her strength as a healer is her dedication to being present and compassionate with each of her patients. She enjoys working with both acute conditions and long-term health maintenance.  

Clark Zimmerman, LAc, MAcOM Clark believes that good health is more than just avoiding illness. To him, healthy living means to feel a sense of vitality, happiness, and inner peace. He has been a student of meditation and taoist philosophy for over 20 years and brings these ideas of balance to his clinical practice. Clark has been involved in health care since 1998. He has treated thousands of patients with physical ailments such as pain, headaches, and digestive issues, but also helps people integrate stress and trauma. Though he studies and practices Chinese medicine, he still has a strong respet for western medicine, and believes that the best healthcare involves using the best that eastern and western medicine have to offer.

Ryan Baker, MAcOM, LAc, RPH Ryan felt that he was destined for a career in healthcare from an early age.  In pursuit of skills and a knowledge base that would allow him to be of service to others, Ryan attended the College of Pharmacy at Oregon State University. In 2000, Ryan was fortunate to be invited as a team member for a series of rural health camps in Nepal. This experience reshaped the course of his personal and professional future. From that moment on, he was hooked on traveling to explore new cultures and has sought to volunteer his healthcare skills whenever possible along the way. Ryan broadened his medical career by enrolling in the Masters degree program at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon. The combination of pharmacy and Chinese medicine has given Ryan the opportunity to serve as a bridge between Western and Eastern medicine for his patients.
