Lynsi is a life-long learner who is dedicated to acquiring new skills and continuously developing improved approaches to healthcare. She views the practitioner-patient relationship as sacred and understands that each learns from one another. Her commitment as a healer extends into her entire community where she volunteers her time and services to better the environment and bring awareness through activism in human and animal rights.
